Founded in 1976 by Giuseppe Bianchetti and Mauro Bracco, Bianchetti Bracco Minoja (BBM) is today one of Italy's most respected industrial property consultancy firms.
BBM's specialist knowledge in the chemical, pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnological sectors sets it apart from most other Italian patent and trademark attorneys whose experience lies traditionally in the engineering, mechanical and electronic fields.
Companies of varying size - from SMEs to multinationals - research institutes, and universities in Italy and abroad look to BBM to ensure across-the-board technical, legal and regulatory protection of their intellectual property.
Officially registered Patent and Trademark Attorneys before the Italian Patent and Trademark Office, the European Patent Office and the OAMI in Alicante for all matters concerning trademarks and EU models, BBM handles all the phases of filing and prosecuting applications, both in Italy and abroad, to secure patent, trademark, ornamental model and design protection. We also provide a wide range of technical-legal assistance: infringement and nullity of third party rights litigation, oppositions, opinions regarding validity and freedom of implementation, patent and bibliographic searches.
As well as longstanding experience in filing and prosecuting patent applications in Italy, the EU and other countries, BBM also provides surveillance, prior trademark search, and assistance in infringement actions and oppositions.
Our technical experts are regularly appointed by the Italian courts to provide specialist assistance on a wide range of issues.
BBM staff have been and continue to be involved in landmark infringement/nullity actions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological sector.
