He has a reputation for working in close contact with lab directors and developers, to build a patent portfolio and maximise the patent protection of inventions created in the product development process. Guido’s expertise extends to advising clients on several IP-related matters, such as due diligence (for acquisitions and divestitures), settlement or negotiation of disputes and IP portfolio acquisitions.

Guido opened the Milan office in 2007 and continues to manage and organize the drafting, filing and prosecuting of Italian, EUTM, European, International and British patent and trade mark applications. He also discusses and evaluates inventions with inventors and technical experts, and helps lawyers with IP litigation and court proceedings.
