The firm's services


Experts at your side

If your question is about a very specific branch of law which requires a notoriously particular experience, any lawyer respectful of the ethics of his profession will direct you to a colleague specially experienced in this field.

However, we should not separate “generalist” lawyers and specialists into two rival and distinct worlds. Every lawyer must be a generalist, and that generalist can be dedicated to a specific area or have a specialty; on the other hand, the person who essentially practices a specialty cannot be ignorant of general law.

The Firm offers both professionals and individuals a service of legal advice and monitoring and assistance in litigation before all courts, particularly in the following areas of expertise:

Arbitration, as an alternative dispute resolution method, offers a different approach to resolving commercial disputes that can better serve the business needs of the parties. It seeks to mitigate the rigors of litigation.

Our firm advises you to insert an arbitration clause in your contracts, which may be severable from the other contractual provisions so that it can survive and be effective even if the rest of the contract is construed as void or otherwise invalid.
