Our Italian Desk offers legal services to companies and individuals doing business in Italy as well as those seeking advice on English Law and is one of the oldest and most successful Italian legal practices in the U.K.
Our specialised Anglo Italian team has been providing legal support and advice to both commercial and private clients since 2005, when we created an Italian law desk in London to offer Italian advice to US and English clients investing in Italy.
With offices in Milan, Rome and Sicily (Palermo) and a team of Italian speaking lawyers and legal consultants, our Italian Desk offers a wide range of legal services to foreign investors and international companies operating throughout Italy with customised solutions for our clients, supporting them in setting up their business in Italy and in their ordinary and extraordinary operations.
Together with our contacts with accountants, property investment and finance, we can provide a comprehensive service in relation to business structures, formation and registration, company secretarial duties, tax, VAT, intellectual property protection, employment issue, and numerous other commercial matters.
Our lawyers are specialists in the areas of advising foreign clients with property investment or transactions in Italy, setting up business structures, dealing with contentious probate, employment issues, commercial litigation and debt collection, personal injury and car/road accidents.
We also have substantial experience working on high profile cases within Italy and we are currently representing a number of Italian local authorities on derivative/financial instruments litigation. The Italian Desk advises medium to large size companies, multinational corporations, investors and Italian Public Authorities.
In 2008, we opened an Italian Desk in New York to assist our clients interested in investing in the US and vice versa. In addition we operate as a point of contact for American and Canadian companies conducting business in Italy and we provide global legal experience with local knowledge in Italy thereby offering a deep understanding of Italian business and industry sectors through experience acquired on the ground.
Lawyers in our Italian Desk are active members of various associations with Italian connections such as Business Club Italia, British Italian Law Association, Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK, British Chamber of Commerce for Italy, American Chamber of Commerce in Italy, the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce in New York and the Italian Chambers of Commerce in Sydney and Melbourne to name a few.
