Technological innovation is a strategic and economic resource whose preservation is often a complex process. The presence of strong operators, not-entirely-regulated competition in major emerging economies, the intangible essence of the products and the ease with which technological assets can be reproduced or copied are the main obstacles to the defence of the property rights of companies whose success lies in their innovation.
The innovation process, involving research and development, technological forecasting, rationalisation and reorganisation activities, requires professional support and therefore legal, economic and technical skills.
Thanks to its expertise in legal matters on the border between science and business and the strong partnership that the company has with consulting firms specialised in innovation, research institutes and universities, Marazzi&Associati is a partner for all operators who need to protect and enhance products, ideas, services and innovative solutions.
