"Trevisan & Cuonzo's extremely competent and creative ten-partner team stands out for its first-class advice and problem-solving mentality."
The Legal 500, 2016
Italy has some of the toughest unfair competition laws in Europe, allowing businesses to thwart competitors’ attempts to copy designs, ideas or trade dress even in the absence of registrable rights. Trevisan & Cuonzo’s IP group has won a number of landmark cases and has contributed notably to the development of this area of law.
Clients assisted in this area include:
- A world leading manufacturer of truck axels in a number of patent infringement and unfair competition cases
- One of the leading Italian TV broadcasters in a trademark and unfair competition case
- A muti-national vacuum cleaner manufacturer on unfair competition and misleading advertising
