Italian law

The opening of our Italian Desks means the firm now offers fully integrated advice for foreign investors, businesses and families. Our team works in close partnership with Italian law firms other professional advisers and financial institutions.

With the Italian legal system based on civil law principles, rather than the UK and US common law, we are experienced at guiding clients through the issues this raises.

We can advise on a wide range of Italian legal issues covering areas such as Corporate, Employment, Real Estate, Tax, Litigation and Insolvency.

The extensive investment in Italian real estate over the last few years means we have considerable experience in transactions involving acquisitions and sales, construction and development projects as well as leasing structures. The team also assists UK & US clients with any financing involved including liaison with private and institutional lenders in relation to mortgages and other financial arrangements relating to Italy.
