Rights holders have high praise for The Luzzatto Group, a storied firm with a legacy of excellence spanning 150 years: “The team is a pleasure to work with in light of its utmost professionalism, constant availability and readiness, collaborative approach, service mindedness and results focus.” One source adds: “With it, we have achieved rapid progress and development with respect to our patent protection and IP strategy – following the group’s advice is always fruitful.” The firm puts a well-integrated team of patent attorneys and lawyers onto the playing field and can advise clients comprehensively and holistically; for example, foresighted prosecution approaches are mapped out that account for potential future litigation. As president of the organisation, Kfir Luzzatto is the driving force. He gets 10 out of 10 from clients for his unrelenting focus on quality and ability to navigate the most delicate matters, for which he often assembles well-configured teams drawn from the prosecution and litigation departments. The top litigator on deck, Oren Mandler is equipped to tackle infringement and other contentious matters across the IP spectrum. Particularly noteworthy is his knack for reversing technical rulings of the Registrar of Patents on appeal.
