Corporate, Business

Corporate and Commercial law

We offer a complete range of services both to new businesses and to companies that are already operational. We accompany clients throughout the business life cycle, starting from the organisation of the corporate structure. We follow all aspects of corporate law related to the ordinary and extraordinary business of a company, such as drafting and amending by-laws and shareholder agreements, capital operations, mergers, demergers, transformations and sale of equity investments.

The firm offers complete assistance on matters of corporate governance, investment and extraordinary financial operations, and business reorganisation.

We operate in close contact with shareholders and corporate bodies, but also with the operating structures that manage contractual relations. In addition to complete assistance in the field of corporate law, the firm also assists its clients in the definition of all types of commercial contract, from the simplest to the most complex, in the drafting and revision of general terms and conditions of purchase and sale, in the negotiation and drawing up of purchase and sale agreements. We also assist clients in the negotiation of contracts that cover several jurisdictions, with particular reference to investment, supply, distribution and trading company contracts.

Merger & Acquisition

We have gained considerable experience in M&A operations and in the structuring and negotiation of corporate transactions, with specific reference to small and medium sized businesses. We assist clients in the realisation of their business initiatives, in the purchase and sale of shares or equity capital, in the purchase and sale of companies or business branches, and in joint venture operations. We offer a personal approach. When clients contact us, our attention is firstly focused on their objectives and then on identifying and defining the strategies to adopt. We remain at the client’s side throughout the entire operation.

We assist our clients also in risk capital investment operations by private equity and venture capital funds, from start to finish. We act on behalf of investors, purchasers and sellers.

Compliance 231

The firm has gained considerable experience in all aspects related to the administrative liability of legal entities, introduced into the Italian legal system by Legislative Decree no. 231 of 8 June 2001.

Over the years we have tried to help our clients to understand the advantages of a valid Organisation, Management and Control Model, better know as the 231 Model. Regardless of its operational advantages, as it allows the efficiency of all company processes to be monitored, if the 231 Model is effectively implemented, it can prevent the administrative penalties laid down from being imposed against entities whenever a predicate offence is committed within the company.

We have gained considerable experience in the drafting of these Models, in their adaptation following regulatory changes or changes to the corporate organisation, but also as members of the Supervisory Bodies and in the defence of Companies on the subject of administrative liability.

Privacy e data protection

Our areas of expertise also comprise: individual dismissals or collective redundancies, contracts, privacy, training and updating and litigation.

Credit Management

With a network of dynamic correspondents, we are active in the management of debt recovery in Italy and abroad, both in and out of court and during execution.

In the commercial area, we carry out a preliminary evaluation of the debt to ascertain the actual possibilities of recovery, also in order to enable the client to assess, based on our written report, whether it is more advisable to write off the debt and set off the loss against income tax.

The client is kept constantly up to date on the status of the recovery procedure and can access all data and case documents.
