“Metroconsult is a small but powerful firm in the Italian scene.” With over 35 years of experience, the outfit boasts immense talent in translating complex details into digestible nuggets of information, and its practitioners effectively communicate with judges. Milan-based Matteo Baroni and Turin native Marco Camolese lead the offices in their respective cities. With up-to-the-minute knowledge, they shine in the field of electronics, software and telecommunications. Baroni draws on more than two decades of expertise in intellectual property to assist clients during non-contentious engagements; while Camolese combines extensive industry experience as head of MPEG Audio’s licensing programme at Sisvel and as a software validator at Franco-British aerospace company, Matra Marconi Space. Proficient in seven languages – Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese and Russian – he can export his superb grasp of technical details to international clientele. Also holding down the fort in Turin, Giancarlo Reposio often teams up with Camolese. A tribute to their capabilities, they are regularly called on to serve as technical experts before the Court of Turin and are party-appointed experts in contentious disputes. Reposio leverages his time in the R&D department of a market leader in the lighting industry, to support those in the fields of mechanics, hydraulics, automotives, optics and medical devices. One patron enthuses: “Immensely talented, Giancarlo maintains great precision and proactiveness at every stage of the application process.” New to the IAM Patent 1000 this year, Mirco Bianco operates out of the Genoa office. The computer engineer is regularly called on by patrons in electronics, information technology and telecommunications.
