About UsRecent Cases

Patents

Patents play a crucial role in the Start-Up Nation's booming innovation economy, protecting intellectual assets and turning them into marketable commodities. For Israel, whose relative advantage relies on human capital, intellectual property is a strategic national resource.

Trademarks

Trademarks are vital marketing assets. They protect the reputation of brands, fight off forgery and contribute to a consistent brand identity. Since Israel became a member of the Madrid System in 2010, protecting this important piece of intellectual property is more accessible than ever.

Designs

The legal dimension of industrial design in Israel is on the verge of change with proposed legislation slated to take effect in 2017. Features of modern design such as fonts are expected to receive improved protections alongside packaging, lighting, jewelry, household items, and logos.

What does patent law look like in the Start-Up Nation - and why is intellectual property worth every entrepreneur's time?

Trademarks

Trademarks

Planning a trademark strategy is the first stop to building a brand. What colors, sound, name, or design will define your image?

Historically, design law may have been the weak link in IP, but new proposed legislation stands to change all that in 2017. What does it mean for designers?

Apps

Apps

App development is a ubiquitous trend, yet protecting the different elements that converge to make an app is no simple feat. How do you start?

Software

Software

Because protection of software faces continuously changing challenges, protecting it requires an in-depth understanding and professional attention to its many facets.

Biotech

Biotech

Biotech is one of Israel's most prominent innovative sectors with a triumvirate of academic, institutional, and research facilities that work together throughout the country.

Medical Devices

Medical Devices

Stents, cameras that travel within the body and heart-mapping devices are just a few of the most notable "blue and white" medical innovations - but the field presents many IP challenges. 

Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceuticals

How do R&D companies continue to undertake the enormous expense of creating new drugs? Part of the answer lies in the crucial role of intellectual property in this industry.

The most important part of a patent attorney's job is not the technical process of registering the invention as a patent, but to ascertain whether it really is a new technological development and design a protection that is compatible with the company's marketing strategy.

The Fifth Generation in Intellectual Property

The year is 1869, the place is Milan, Italy. Riccardo Luzzatto founds The Luzzatto Office, a firm of lawyers that will become well known in later years and will concentrate its interests in a new and exciting field of law: Intellectual and Industrial Property.

Riccardo's son, Enrico, took charge of the firm in 1923 and was later joined by his elder son, Attilio.

Dr. Edgar Luzzatto joined the firm to work with his father, Enrico, and his brother, for a brief period before World War II. In 1976, he started a practice as a patent attorney in Israel, which was to become "Luzzatto & Luzzatto Patent Attorneys."

Dr. Kfir Luzzatto, Edgar's son and the great-grandson of the founder, and his wife, Dr. Esther Luzzatto, joined the firm in the 1980's. Together they grew the business, turning it into one of the most influential patent law firms in Israel.

Recent years have seen the fifth generation of the Luzzatto family join The Luzzatto Group. Advocate Michal Luzzatto is the managing partner at The Luzzatto Law Firm, and Lilach Luzzatto, a mechanical engineer, is a partner at Luzzatto & Luzzatto Patent Attorneys.
