Maria Luce Piattelli
As a senior associate in the IPMT Group, Maria Luce Piattelli focuses her practice at Hogan Lovells on strategic brand counselling, anti-counterfeit actions and IP transactional works. Since 2004 Maria Luce has developed her skills advising clients in the management of complex trademark and design portfolios, in customs seizure matters as well as in a wide range of domestic and cross-border transactions in industries as diverse as fashion and luxury, technology, media, telecoms and food.
In 2011 she obtained a PhD in IP Law from the University of Parma, with a focus on trademarks, her real passion. If you wish to register your trademark in Italy, Maria Luce knows how to do it. Her skills in devising the most effective branding strategy, combined with a deep understanding of substantive law, are reflected in her ability to provide helpful advice to clients, as well as to draft and negotiate assignment or license agreements and to assist in complex M&A operations where IP is a key asset.
In addition, in the more than 10 years at Hogan Lovells Maria Luce has developed strong connections with several colleagues of the IP teams in the other offices of the firm, working with them almost every day. If you need a point of contact for trademark matters in Italy who is able to also assist transnationally – she is the right person to ask!
