Practices in Italy

Corporate and M&A 

Corporate clients need lawyers with technical expertise and a practical approach to meet the demands of the evolving global marketplace. The Italian Corporate and Commercial teams' diverse expertise and cross-border experience covers a wide range of issues specific to various industry sectors.

Its corporate and commercial expertise continues to grow as a result of close working relationships with key domestic and international clients. Dedicated teams have been appointed to provide specialised assistance in areas such as M&A, corporate finance, energy,  environmental and administrative law, and competition law. 

Employment and benefits

Employment issues in Italy are usually intricate and it is important for employers to be aware of their duties and obligations as failure to comply with these can cause remarkable liabilities.

Advising in this field demands services of outstanding quality and lawyers who thrive on complexity and innovation. We are experts in all areas of employment and benefits law (including the share and option plans and executives' incentive schemes). We pride ourselves on delivering our fine expertise in respect of these delicate matters.

Few practices can match the quality of our people, the breadth of our client base, our global reach and our top-tier position across the full range of financial products. 

Litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution

We believe that litigation is not the only means of resolving disputes. We work with our clients to resolve issues efficiently and effectively while pursuing and protecting their interests.

Our Italian litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution practice routinely handles top-level cases and is well-recognised in Italy and throughout Europe. Although Italian litigation procedures are conservative, we encourage creative and novel approaches to complex issues. 

Real estate 

The Italian real estate market has grown rapidly and is predicted to become one of the most attractive to European investors. The development of new structures and vehicles and the sophistication of financing techniques requires highly-specialised lawyers who provide a comprehensive service.

We pride ourselves on the breadth of our expertise and our first class track record. 


Allen & Overy has specialised administrative lawyers in all Italian offices who possess a strong understanding of administrative procedures and recognise the different approaches and strategies required to deal with public law issues.

We can also count on a dedicated environmental team since this area of law has become an increasingly important field in Italy that permeates many other business areas. Our teams can anticipate potential issues and prepare suitable strategies for dealing with Italian regulations providing clear and structured advice. Our expertise covers permits, regulatory advice and negotiation and litigation for all administrative and environmental matters. 


With the Italian tax system subject to continuous revisions, financial institutions and MNEs are all in need of up to date information and reliable tax advice. That makes tax experts of fundamental importance to firms.

Our experts have deep knowledge of Italian tax issues, and are specialised in structuring innovative solutions to complex problems. As a multi-jurisdictional tax advisory service, we occupy a prominent position in this expanding field and offer a comprehensive service at international level through our Italian and foreign offices.

US Law
