Since 2011, the Bird & Bird Milan office has been supporting the "Fondazione Paola Frassi" with an annual financial contribution.
The foundation was created in honour of Paola Frassi, a colleague in our intellectual property department who lost her battle with cancer in November 2010.
The foundation supports social solidarity projects, promoting:
- scientific research of cures for cancer, especially breast cancer
- in-hospital and domestic assistance for those with illnesses
- financial support of children in distress and the institutions that help them
- various university projects related to industrial and intellectual property law, including financial support of talented young students.
