INDUSTRIES

Our IP Attorneys, thanks to their diverse and complementary skills, support any type of client with the best strategies and the most appropriate tools for the protection of intellectual property.

Here is the complete list of our industries:

HISTORY

Experience, competence and quality of service are the key elements of our firm, founded in Turin in 1879 by brothers Torta.

The Torta family was first succeeded by Guido Bongiovanni and then by Paolo Jorio, Roberto Prato and Luigi Boggio, who contributed to expand the national and international client base, the operating offices, and drove the transformation towards the current structure.

Over the years, we built a solid professional team, in which the experience acquired by the Senior partners in decades is combined on a daily basis with the fresh talent of Junior attorneys with a special expertise on emerging technologies and the new needs for brand and design protection. In this way, we are able to look at the future with confidence, ensuring high quality and continuity of services to each client.

An ever growing client portfolio including many prestigious Italian and overseas companies and the consolidated partnership with the most important international IP firms have contributed to the continuous success and growth of our firm at the Italian and European level. Our positioning is also confirmed by the numerous awards we have received in the last decade from the most important Italian and international legal directories (including Managing Intellectual Property, World Trademark Review, Leaders League and Legalcommunity.it).

Today we are structured as a joint stock company with 61 professionals including 43 partners, and over 130 staff members.

Every day brings new challenges and new opportunities for professional growth.
And the story continues…
