Boosting its team with prominent specialised lawyers in Italy, the firm now services clients from five key European locations

The firm, formerly Studio Legale Casucci-Ferretti Stp, operates three offices in Italy, with the industry and fashion hub of Milan serving as its principal location. Though only established in 2005, the Casucci team of nine IP-specialised avvocati quickly developed into a recognized force on the Italian IP litigation parquet. Founder Giovanni Casucci is widely acknowledged in his country as a rainmaker in matters of IP, specializing in patent, trademark, design and copyright law. He brings a wide perspective, contacts and experience from former steps in his career such as at the Milan branch of one of the largest international law firms. A well-known and well-liked personality in the IP community, Giovanni Casucci gained his reputation not only by delivering professional excellence to an impressive client base but also through his engagement with international IP organisations such as LES and a ceaseless speaking and publishing activity.

The merger of this prestigious Italian boutique with BARDEHLE PAGENBERG, a partnership of patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law, which runs offices in Munich, Dusseldorf, Paris, Barcelona and, now, Milan will create a veritable European IP powerbase. Multiply qualified and multilingual patent, trademark and design experts serve clients from around the world in all proceedings at the international, Europe-wide and local level. As the firm’s continuous involvement in prominent global conflicts in the IP field shows, it is this delicate mix of legal and technical specialisation combined with a cross-national ability in litigation and prosecution that makes up a successful intellectual property practice today – the Italian merger being a further important addition to this proven concept.

BARDEHLE PAGENBERG warmly welcomes Giovanni Casucci and his team and looks forward to take on common challenges in their professional cooperation.
