The timely acquisition of a domain name is fundamental for any company, as it is a guarantor of its own existence and is an important vehicle for promoting its work.

De Simone & Partners provides its clients with advice on the selection, registration and renewal of domain names and their protection against infringements of various types (cybersquatting, typosquatting, illegitimate registration). 

Our team of experts, which includes arbitrators at the Court of Arbitration of the Czech Chamber of Commerce for procedures concerning .eu, .com  and gTLD domains in general, provides assistance in the recovery and reassignment of domain names at an Italian and international level. 

Consultancy services provided by our professionals include the protection of on-line brands, also for prevention purposes and by means of watch systems for discovering domain names which are identical or similar to our clients' trademarks. Our watch systems allow us to take action against any behaviour which is in breach of intellectual property rights.

Furthermore, our work includes a brand protection intelligence service that allows the identification of domain names identical or similar to our customers’ brands. 

With the support of our technological partners we can identify:

  • the sale of counterfeit goods on websites, marketplaces and social networks
  • know-how or confidential information on the web and dark-web 
  • unauthorised use of intellectual property rights.
