Società Italiana Brevetti has been awarded the Managing IP Italy Patent Prosecution Firm of the Year 2021 trophy for its achievements over the last 12 months.
During the virtual ceremony broadcast live on 30 March 2021, our Head of Patents Elisabetta Papa accepted the award and thanked Managing IP, our patents team and SIB clients for this achievement.
SIB was commended for acting in a number of important matters for clients during the past year.
These included advising a security and minting company on the IP issues around the production of masks to support the efforts to tackle COVID-19; representing a research institute and a diagnostic company on IP protection and other legal issues concerning their rapid COVID-19 testing products; and succeeding in offensive and defensive patent oppositions for clients in the manufacturing and life science sectors.
Managing IP said: “The pandemic has posed big challenges for businesses worldwide. IP practitioners have responded with diligence and imagination, and we are delighted to recognise some of their achievements at this year’s Managing IP Awards.”
This is the second successive year the firm’s work has been recognized at the Managing IP Awards. In 2020, it was named Trademark Prosecution Firm of the Year.
The Managing IP Awards are based on independent research. Each year Managing IP research analysts obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys, particularly looking for case studies of great significance to clients and/or IP law and practice.
SIB is ranked annually in all major intellectual property market surveys: find out more.
