Our partners at Practice Insight have kindly provided us with data on filings in Italy, listing the five most productive firms in three separate filing categories.
Studio Torta leads the table for total applications filed between approximately September 2014 and August 2017, followed by Jacobacci & Partners and Bugnion.
The same five firms responsible for the most applications in Italy are also responsible for the most PCT applications, though their order is different. Here, Bugnion is on top, with Studio Torta in fifth place.
Finally, we have a table that gives an indication of which firms received the largest number of referrals in the jurisdiction. That is, the number of applications filed by the given firm between the approximate period of September 2014 and August 2017, where the firm was not responsible for the originating application (in the case of national phase entry and Paris Convention applications), and where that originating application was received from Canada, US, Japan, UK, Spain, Germany, France or Korea. Jacobacci & Partners is out in front, while UK-headquartered Murgitroyd also makes the top five.
The data are taken from publicly available sources – due to delays in some publications, the numbers may be less than the actual numbers of applications filed.
