Legal advice and assistance
Legal advice and assistance in tax, commercial and corporate matters
We provide legal consultancy and assistance in tax, commercial and corporate matters.
Our lawyers support clients in the management of issues related to planning their business right from the outset, from the establishment of new legal entities to the reorganization of existing ones.
In the field of routine business operations, we offer assistance in drafting national and international commercial agreements and in managing corporate governance issues.
We have consolidated experience in extraordinary transactions, such as assignments, mergers, demergers, acquisitions and takeovers, as well as in the creation and regulation of joint venture agreements and temporary associations of enterprises.
We provide assistance during negotiations and legal/fiscal due diligence procedures, in the drafting and negotiation of agreements and related documentation, and in the assessment and planning of transactions, as well as dealing with any practical aspects.
Our lawyers provide assistance in judicial disputes and arbitration proceedings in the field of commercial and corporate law, as well as those involving civil law issues closely related to business activity and the transfer of companies and assets from one generation to the next.
We also provide assistance in any criminal proceedings that may arise from business disputes (corporate, tax, financial and property offences).
Our firm offers comprehensive assistance, also in higher Italian and EU courts.
Judicial assistance and out-of-court advice in the field of financial criminal law
Our firm proposes an innovative approach to criminal law issues, focusing on the rewards and advantages of prevention and regulatory compliance. We of course provide assistance in court proceedings (in both criminal and civil trials, in particular regarding fiscal, corporate, bankruptcy and property offences). In addition, however, we draft organizational, management and control models as envisaged under Italian Legislative Decree 231/01 (regarding the administrative liability of companies for criminal offences), deal with related legal requirements (including supervisory bodies and training), and provide assistance and advice on applying for “legality rating” certification issued by the Italian competition authority (AGCM), with a view to obtaining facilitated access to public funding and bank credit. Moreover, we deal with the assessment of crime-related risks/costs in relation to specific transactions (criminal due diligence) or to the overall operations of the company (“criminal and fiscal check-up”), and investigate instances of suspected fraud perpetrated against the company.
