President of the Luzzatto Group
at The Luzzatto Group
Kfir Luzzatto is the president of The Luzzatto Group and his family’s fourth generation to work in intellectual property. His practice covers patents and trademark matters.
The Luzzatto Group was founded by Mr Luzzatto’s great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869 and moved to Israel more than 50 years ago.
Mr Luzzatto earned a PhD in chemical engineering from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev and continues his relationship with his alma mater as a guest lecturer, in addition to speaking at other academic institutions on the subject of intellectual property and technology.
Mr Luzzatto has handled many important cases involving Prozac, Viagra and other breakthrough pharmaceutical products, as well as sophisticated high-tech subjects such as cyber protection and defence systems.
Mr Luzzatto has vast experience in drafting and prosecuting patent applications in different fields, but nowadays he mainly directs and participates in IP litigation and oversees complex portfolios requiring sophisticated strategy planning. His extensive experience in litigation gives him a unique perspective on the development of strong IP protection for start-ups and multinational companies alike.
Mr Luzzatto is the recipient of the Landau Award for research and the author of many articles on intellectual property. His book, The World of Patents, was published in Hebrew by Globes Press in 2003. His international book, Fun with Patents, was released in early 2016.
Mr Luzzatto often serves as an examiner for the Israeli Patent and Trademark Office for applicants for a patent attorney licence in Israel.
