Our Milan office – our first in Italy – opened in January 2018 and is centred around Intellectual Property.

The office is supported by patent litigation partners who are recognised as leading advisers to innovative pharmaceutical, biotechnology and life sciences companies. Adding to our already vast experience of managing pan-European patent litigation, our multi award-winning team now additionally boasts a market leading patent litigator in Italy with a track record of advising global clients in Italian litigation, as well as before the CJEU, EPO and the European Commission.

With a strong focus in life sciences patent litigation, but also covering the full spread of IP rights across a variety of sectors, our presence in Italy further strengthens our market-leading pan-European patent litigation and strategy offering for our global clients. 

The opening is a responsive and practical move to help us deliver commercial solutions to our clients. It complements our track record of achieving strategic objectives for clients across Europe and beyond, by decisive action in the appropriate European jurisdictions. Our new team also has significant expertise and experience in pharmaceutical and life sciences regulatory matters, and advises on the whole product life cycle from R&D to marketing authorisation, pricing and reimbursement, advertising, tendering, compliance and liability issues. 

And we also advise multinational and domestic clients active in other sectors including design, fashion, technology, media, telecommunications, manufacturing and automotive, on their most important trade marks, copyright, advertising regulation and data privacy matters.
