You think, we care

About Us


We develop the best
strategies to take care of
and protect an idea,
even before it is officially born,
and work to continue
protecting it while it
develops over time.

Our logo speaks to this: a delicate egg enclosed in a solid, protective shell, inspired by the so-called “Columbus’ egg”.
The message of this old tale is how the genius of those who find a solution before everyone else is decisive in achieving the set objective.

Our daily work focuses on protecting this genius, for all those people who work on a project with commitment and determination every day and want to see it fully achieved.

“And Columbus answered: the difference, my lords, is that you could have done it, but it was I who did!”

Arbo was founded by Andrea Arecco and Giovanni Bottino. They are both biomedical engineers and have been working in the field of intellectual property protection for over ten years

They were motivated to create Studio Arbo by a desire to change certain paradigms of intellectual property consulting, an area in which they have grown as both colleagues and collaborators and in which they developed a shared vision of the skills necessary to best meet the needs of companies and individuals. Greatly passionate for all technical application fields, each new project is a stimulus that gives them the opportunity to further their know-how and put new and updated tools at the service of their customers.

Arbo was created thanks to their professional partnership and is based on attention, listening and caring for the needs of the person and the company.
