It distinguishes itself from some of the country’s more traditional service providers by its resolutely pragmatic approach to intellectual property – its creative lawyers are passionate about securing commercial advantages for patrons.”

Of Elena Martini, the guide says: “Elena Martini continues to build her reputation – her ability to broker advantageous settlement agreements is admired, but when matters proceed to the courtroom, she shines there too“. Luigi Manna, according to the guide, “is great to work with – he provides advice in a timely fashion and has outstanding attention to detail. He can quickly get to grips with very complicated technology.”
