Societį Italiana Brevetti
At SIB Societą Italiana Brevetti we specialise in intellectual property only, from protection to enforcement.

Constant involvement in the intellectual property legislative process both at national and European level, added to participation in major European and international intellectual property organizations, gives SIB unequalled insight into intellectual property law developments, and early awareness of new trends in the practice.

A wider perspective of intellectual property is what adds value to our solutions, making SIB a European leader in IP protection and enforcement.
