Italy > Intellectual property

MONDINI BONORA GINEVRA Studio Legale was established after the former entities Mondini Rusconi, Bonora e Associati and Rapisardi e Ginevra Avvocati Associati joined forces in early 2021. Both firms were active in the IP field: the former with a focus on copyright, trademarks and competition, the latter on patents and related disputes. The newly formed team is jointly led by Giorgio Mondini and Carlo Ginevra and combines the two areas of specialisms in a single department. Giacomo Bonelli is a recognised team member with specialism in copyrighted industrial design, models and trademarks. Fabio Ghiretti stands out for assisting clients in the music, entertainment, and fashion industries.
