CEO of the firm and Director of its Rome Office, Fabrizio has over 40 years of practice covering all aspects of IP rights.

His contribution to drafting national and European IP laws has been extensive: Fabrizio has taken part in drafting of the Implementing regulation of the Intellectual Property Code and of its amending decree (2010), revising Italian IP law and preparing an Intellectual Property Code (concerning patents, designs, trademarks, geographical indications, plant breeders' rights, semiconductor topographies, undisclosed information – 2005), as well as applying the Madrid Protocol and the TRIPs Agreement in Italy.

His comprehensive insight into legislation governing IP in Europe has been an invaluable asset in advising companies on particularly complex points of law, or on the application of new provisions at Italian and European level. His clients include multinational companies with a wide range of interests, but also universities and research organisations.

Fabrizio advises clients on trademark and patents as well as unfair competition, licensing and contracts, valuation of patent and trademark portfolios. He provides legislative counsel in the field of intellectual and industrial property.
