Italy

Our lawyers serve as the bridge between Italy and the United States — providing comprehensive cross-border legal services for our clients in a wide array of industries.

Leveraging our United States platform and our deep roots in and understanding of the Italian economy and culture, our lawyers effectively counsel Italian companies on all aspects of their operations and investments in the U.S., including:

  • Establishing businesses
  • Tax
  • Litigation and dispute resolution
  • Immigration and employment
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Intellectual property
  • Trade and distribution
  • Financing
  • Regulatory advice
  • Economic incentives

And, we have extensive Italian language capability.

For U.S. companies investing in Italy, our lawyers do the necessary U.S. corporate and tax planning necessary to bring profits home. In addition, our combination of language skills, experience working in Italy and our network of professional contacts throughout Italy (including at the U.S. Embassy, Consulates and with the Italian government) allows us to effectively assist our American clients in identifying Italian opportunities and executing them.
