Over the years we have helped numerous Italian businesses set up and run successful UK and US operations. Our advice covers initially selecting and putting in place the appropriate corporate structure, e.g. companies (including subsidiaries), branches, partnerships (including LLPs) or joint ventures.

Where appropriate we also assist with establishing agency, distribution and franchising networks and the recruitment of local employees or consultants. Advising in the acquisition of commercial trading premises is also a significant aspect of our work.  

Once the business is up and running we are involved in advising on the full range of commercial contracts, such as supply agreements, standard terms and conditions of sale and all other relevant contractual arrangements.

In assisting Italian entrepreneurs we aim to ensure that they understand the differences between doing business in the UK and Italy.
