Doing Business in Italy

Exploring Opportunities and Navigating the Complexity of the Italian Market

Investing and Establishing in Italy

Whether you are looking to buy an agriturismo on the Chianti hills, invest in a tech start-up, license a promising invention, or enter into a distributorship agreement, you should be aware of the ‘Italian exceptionalism’. Italy is a country of wealth and opportunities, but its beautiful roses sometimes hide spines and bugs. We know that, and we will be on your side to plan and deliver a bullet-proof deal so that you may focus only on what really matters (which painting or “palazzo” would you like to buy? what price should you sell your innovative product in the Italian market?), leaving us all the boring bits (spoiler alert: we actually enjoy it!). We will also work hard to protect your investment.

Transparent and Flexible Legal Services

We pledge to always be candid with you – starting with fees. We are flexible and will adapt to your needs: we can bill hourly or present a planned fee scheme; we can advise on legal aspects only or team up with our (or your) trusted tax and industry-related experts (let’s face it: tax is an essential part of every investment and operation); we will go along with your lawyers back at home.

Complex Legal Issues and International Collaboration

Sometimes, you will present issues that do not fit squarely in our field of expertise or are so complex that a team must be assembled. To provide you with broader state-of-the-art assistance beyond the borders of our knowledge, we have established stable cooperation with several trusted colleagues.
