Bronze - Firms: litigation
Sparkling advocacy skills, robust technical know-how and a nimble approach give Avvocati Associati Franzosi Dal Negro Setti an edge in complex cross-border disputes. The firm has been a fixture of the Italian legal market since in 1963, while its Spain, Poland and China desks are a boon to companies looking to extend their influence further afield. Founding partner and luminary Mario Franzosi has paved the way forward for many of the country’s practitioners and has masterminded many well-known litigation strategies – such as the ‘Italian torpedo’ – during his tenure. Senior partners Vincenzo Jandoli and Federica Santonocito oversee the IP division. An “excellent, hands-on lawyer”, Jandoli is a go-to in the life sciences: “He is super-experienced and reliable, and takes a pragmatic yet creative approach to cases and strategies.” IAM Patent 1000 newcomer Santonocito also receives effusive praise: “She always aims to find the most effective way to protect her clients’ interests. She is passionate, meticulous and the quality of her work is consistently great.”
