Gallo & Partners, a company authorized to represent you before the Patent Office
Gallo & Partners is a consulting company that operates globally and is authorized to represent companies and individuals at the Italian, European and International patent offices.
Our professional patent and trademark attorneys are authorized to represent our client companies for obtaining and defending their patent, trademark and design rights worldwide, particularly before the Italian Patent and Trademark Office (UIBM), the European Patent Office (EPO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO, or OMPI in Italian, for example for international PCT patent applications or for international trademark applications), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), or in any country through our network of qualified correspondents.
We have the knowledge and experience to assist you during the filing, examination and granting phases of a patent, design or trademark application before the various patent and trademark offices. In particular, we take care of drafting the patent, trademark, and design applications, replying to official letters received by examiners in order to obtain the property right, and keeping the property alive by paying the respective maintenance fees.
In addition, we also handle validations of international property rights in Italy or extensions of Italian property rights abroad. In particular, we oversee the designation of countries forming part of International Agreements such as the European Patent Convention or the Madrid Protocol for international trademarks. We take care of requesting provisional protection for European patent applications in Italy at the UIBM, and validating European patents granted in Italy by filing the relative Italian translation (TBE). Furthermore, we also handle the extension and validation of your Italian patent, trademark and design rights worldwide at the competent local patent and trademark offices through our selected network of correspondents.
