LabLaw Studio Legale Rotondi & Partners and Deloitte Legal have announced a strategic alliance aimed at bringing together LabLaw’s excellence in labor law and the multidisciplinarity and innovation in the legal advisory services market of Deloitte Legal, part of the network of one of the world’s leading consulting firms.
The agreement will maximize the synergies produced by the combination of LabLaw’s specialized excellence with the breadth of consulting services offered by Deloitte Legal and the Deloitte network to its clients. In particular, the agreement will not only increase LabLaw’s market presence within its specific expertise in the field, consolidating its position as market leader, but will also be instrumental in pursuing the respective strategic objectives of both firms in the field of international development and innovation.
LabLaw and Deloitte Legal will remain independent and autonomous realities, with focus, respectively, on litigation and consulting. Francesco Rotondi will remain at the helm of LabLaw, with more than 50 professionals, while Luca Failla (Co-Founder and Chairman of LabLaw) will leave LabLaw in order to take over, as of October 1, the leadership of the Employment & Benefits practice of Deloitte Legal in Italy, which will count about 25 professionals and 3 partners.
Carlo Gagliardi, Managing Partner, Deloitte Legal DCM (Deloitte Central Mediterranean), confirms that “with this agreement Deloitte Legal continues its strategy of developing the employment practice globally. We equip ourselves with the tools to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by a strategic practice, even in the current economic situation. Our clients are facing exceptional volumes of activities with employment law implications and the arrival of Luca Failla and the alliance with LabLaw will allow us to complete the range of our offer to better support them, ensuring the excellence that has always distinguished our services in this area too “.
“There is no doubt that our world is facing an extraordinary process of evolution and with it our way of working and our workplaces. We are excited to work with Deloitte Legal to address the new challenges that change brings. LabLaw has been providing litigation consulting and services in the areas of labor, union and social security law for over 10 years and we are now more than ready to broaden the horizons of services designed for our clients. We are starting today, strong in our alliance with Deloitte Legal” says Francesco Rotondi, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of LabLaw.
“The professional services available to our clients also thanks to this strategic alliance – says lawyer Luca Failla – will allow us to continue to ensure the added value and quality to which we have accustomed them in dealing with any issue related to their business. The strategic alliance is therefore in the wake, also cultural, of the initiatives that have been undertaken by the two firms since their foundation”.
“For this new strategic alliance we sought and strongly desired an organization that understood and shared the fundamental value of making complete solutions available to clients. LabLaw’s services in labor law and, in particular, in litigation, are well known, client-oriented and will provide real added value to the clients of the network”, says Alessandro Lualdi, Managing Partner Tax & Legal DCM.
