penaleThe firm’s legal services in the field of civil law are tailored to businesses and companies: within this sector the firm has gained a reputation for excellence in the resolution of problems related to corporate transactions (acquisitions and disposals, tenders, franchising, licensing and agency agreements, etc.) as well as to company law (incorporation, transformation and transfers of companies, etc.) both in Italy and abroad.
The firm represents the directors and officers of client companies both before and during court proceedings arising from ordinary claims based on corporate liability and within the framework of insolvency procedure.

Like the tax unit, Civil Law, headed by the partner PAOLO CENTORE, is subdivided into three areas:

Preventive assistance:
This area focuses on assisting clients during the negotiation and drawing up of contracts, as well as in alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

Ongoing assistance:
This entails immediate advice and action for the resolution of legal problems related to day-to-day business operations.

Litigation:
Representation of clients at all levels, instances and phases of legal proceedings, both before the ordinary courts, including the Supreme Court, and in arbitration in accordance with national and international rules. Services in connection with arbitration include acting as counsel for the client and, thanks to the long experience acquired by the firm’s partners, as members of arbitration panels. This unit is also in charge of lodging motions for emergency relief and assisting clients in debt recovery.
