Brand Protection

Intellectual property can be protected for example by trademarks or patents. Such titles typically give the holder negative rights, i.e. the right to deprive others of use or marketing such as a patent-protected invention. The protection of rights therefore represents the process aimed at prohibiting others from using or marketing protected industrial property through civil, administrative, criminal measures, to avoid the unauthorized use of industrial property.

The abusive use of so-called counterfeiting industrial property rights causes great economic and reputational damage to companies that can take different actions to protect and support them.

What rights can be associated with the intangible assets of companies?


A trademark is an exclusive right on the use of a sign in relation to the goods and services for which it was registered.


A patent is an exclusive right granted for the protection of an invention (a product or a process).

Industrial designs and models

An industrial design or model is an exclusive right granted for the protection of the external appearance of all or part of a product resulting from the characteristics and / or decoration of the product.


Copyright is the term used to describe the rights that creators have over their literary, scientific and artistic works.

Mystery Shopping - Protection and checks on Sales Networks

Mystery shopping is a technique that has its origins in the 1930s in the United States of America as a technique used by private investigators to prevent thefts by employees mainly in banks and shops and commercial networks. In 1940 Wilmark coined the term Mystery Shopping and this method began to be used to improve customer service.

Currently there is an Italian standard UNI 11312-1: 2017 which defines: "Mystery shopping / audit is an undeclared audit conducted in an unrecognizable way, having the characteristic of simulating the behavior and actions of a potential or real customer of an organization that provides services, including any associated products, in order to detect the quality of the service provided "… and fraud or offenses.

Asset investigations for extrajudicial credit recovery

Asset investigations are activities conducted by authorized investigative agencies aimed at obtaining information to understand the debtor's solvency.

Debt collection is the activity carried out in order to obtain payment (total or partial) of the credit from the debtor.

The patrimonial investigations therefore make it possible to verify, before undertaking onerous credit recovery activities that may not lead to economically satisfactory results, a detailed picture of the official and unofficial assets of the debtor to be attacked.
It is also possible to use these investigations as a support in order to evaluate any new business relationships with "new customers".
