Italian Lawyers, Solicitors and Avvocati

Our Italian Law Desk is widely recognised as one of the largest and longest established independent Italian law practices in England, right in the City of London and with offices in Milan, Rome, Sicily and Sardinia.

With over 50 professionals across these offices, our cross border practice is one of London’s longest operating full service Anglo-Italian law firms. Next year marks the firm’s 15th anniversary in London, where we will be hosting a wide range of events and campaigns, including an employee appreciation event.

Our Italian lawyers offer legal services to companies and individuals doing business in Italy as well as those seeking to do business in the UK. Our specialised Anglo Italian team has been providing legal support and advice to both commercial and private clients since 2005, when the Italian law desk was created in London to offer Italian advice to US and English clients doing business or investing in Italy.

One of the best Italian departments in London. The firm as a whole provides a "Ferrari" service, with particular expertise in cases with an international/multi-jurisdictional element (Global Expert Awards 2018)
