SALOMONE SANSONE is a family-run law firm, the origins of which date back to 1947 when the Hon Walter Salomone set up his practice in the field of intellectual property consultancy. He was assisted by his son, Albert W Salomone, who succeeded him in 1973 and re-named the firm A.W. Salomone & Co. During the 1990s it was further re-styled and re-named Salomone, Sansone & Co.

To date, we are the only law firm in Malta that specializes exclusively in intellectual property law.
Our legal department handles all matters relating to intellectual property (IP) including, but not limited to, devising strategies for businesses through the provision of information on how best to protect one’s IP, as well as conducting availability checks among the applicable registers for trademarks, patents and designs (as appropriate), both locally as well as internationally.
Additionally, our legal department handles the enforcement of intellectual property rights, which includes out of court settlements as well as litigation, with a great portion of our cases relating to anti-counterfeiting matters and trademark infringement matters.
Moreover, the preparation, filing and prosecution of trademarks, patents and designs, as well as the maintenance of registered trademarks, patents and designs are handled by our administration department, together with the assistance of our legal team, where necessary.

SALOMONE SANSONE is the only law firm in Malta that specialises exclusively in all aspects of intellectual property law. SALOMONE SANSONE is a family-run firm, the origins of which date back to 1947 when the Hon. Walter Salomone set up his practice in the field of intellectual property consultancy. He was then assisted by his son Albert W. Salomone who succeeded him in 1973 and re-named the firm A.W. Salomone & Co. During the 1990s it was further re-styled and re-named Salomone, Sansone & Co.

Broadly speaking, Malta exhibits many strengths and characteristics that combine into a favourable value proposition for foreign investment and global business, including in terms of education and language as well as business incentives. Moreover, Malta remains at the forefront in the fight against counterfeit goods and in fact, in 2019, Malta ranked third in the European Union for the number of fake goods intercepted by the Malta Customs Intellectual Property Enforcement Unit, owing to Malta’s strategic position as an island in the Mediterranean Sea which provides a strategic shipping line very close to Africa. This is particularly relevant with respect to counterfeit goods in transit, meaning goods sent from a non-EU country, transiting Malta en route to another non-EU country.
At SALOMONE SANSONE, we endeavour to provide a cost-effective and reliable service to our numerous clients hailing from different time zones and cultures.
