We are business lawyers, specialised in assisting domestic and international enterprises to achieve their goals, finding efficient legal solutions to complex matters and providing clear, concise and value added advice. We see ourselves not only as lawyers but, importantly, as business consultants. We are an independent law firm with offices in Italy, France and the UK. Our lawyers strive to provide our clients not only with practical advice from within the jurisdiction in which they work, but to do so with an eye on the needs and peculiarities of an international client operating in a foreign jurisdiction. We understand the dynamics of internationalisation whether it be by direct investment or through local subsidiaries and help provide a cross-jurisdictional and cross-cultural bridge for our international clients. Our experts advise on all aspects of business law from dispute resolution in all its guises through general commercial legal advice to sector regulation. Our teams are sector based so that they not only know the law, they understand the business environment in which our clients operate. We place a great deal of emphasis on knowing our clients and understanding their needs. Our teams include many dual qualified Italian, French and English lawyers as well as locally qualified experts.
