On June 27, 2024, the Unified Patent Court (UPC) opened a new section of the Central Division in Milan, following the decision of the Administrative Committee of 26 June 2023 amending the Agreement relating to the Unified Patent Court (UPCA) to establish a section of the Central Division in Milan.

This section is in charge of International Patent Classification class A patent disputes: the “human necessities” sector, including pharmaceutical and medical devices, agriculture, food, tobacco, home appliances, clothing, wood and furniture, fire-fighting, and the sports and gaming/ entertainment industry, but excluding patents involving supplementary protection certificates (SPCs).

At the same time, Lavoix announces the acquisition of the Milanese firm Giambrocono, and confirms its excellent pan-European positioning in the industrial property market. Around 50 professionals, including 18 consultants, have joined Lavoix’s Italian team.

Paris, Munich, Luxembourg, Milan: Lavoix has a footprint wherever the UPC is located. Through this strategic approach, our client benefit from an optimal response to their needs and requirements, as well as the highest level of service.
