We are a team of lawyers with an in-depth knowledge of employment law.
We offer companies modern and comprehensive consultancy in personnel management and industrial relations and support in resolving judicial and extrajudicial disputes.
We provide our assistance to:
Italian and multinational companies operating in a variety of sectors: industry, trade and services, banking, financial intermediation, chemicals, medical technologies, transport and logistics, cooperatives, clothing and fashion, research and development, publishing, catering and tourism.
public bodies and publicly-owned companies
executives and managers
Our strong points: we have a proven track record in the field of employment law, born out of day-to-day experience and an ongoing commitment to keeping abreast of developments. We respond quickly to client requests, addressing them with attention, dynamism and flexibility to identify the most effective solution after assessment the cost/risk/benefit ratio in each specific case and with the needs and expectations of each client in mind.
We combine the founder’s twenty-five years of experience and professionalism with recognised expertise and the infectious enthusiasm of our younger lawyers, who trained and have grown professionally in the firm.
The team is completed by two secretaries who for years have supported the Firm with competence, precision and responsibility.
For the convenience of our clients, the firm remains open during the holiday weeks of August and over the Christmas break to enable us to handle and promptly remedy emergencies or unforeseen events.
We are not content to simply satisfy our clients by winning a lawsuit, reaching an advantageous agreement with an opposing party or drafting a decisive opinion. Our objective is to “educate” our clients in matters of employment law, providing them with the means to ensure that over time they have less need of our assistance.
Our goal is to establish an understanding of our clients that goes beyond the mere professional relationship and which is based on confidence, mutual trust, transparency, ongoing dialogue, loyalty and respect.
This approach has always enabled us to do away with superfluous formalities in our relations with clients. Our objective is for the client to feel “at home” with us, confident that they can rely on professionals who are committed to achieving their goals.
Our high level of client retention and their expressions of appreciation (see the “Client Feedback” section) demonstrate our success in this respect. This is an achievement we are extremely proud of and our desire is to continue in this vein.
Legal assistance to companies is provided before tribunals and courts of appeal throughout the country and before the Supreme Court, and covers all facets of disputes concerning employment, agency relationships and autonomous contractors, social security and trade union matters.
We personally attend all hearings, as we believe that only the firm’s lawyers who have detailed knowledge of the case can best defend the client’s interests before the courts and opposing parties.
We provide extrajudicial consultancy in matters of personnel management, with particular respect to:
the contractual relationship between the company and the employee from inception to termination (permanent and temporary employment; disciplinary proceedings against employees; transfers, travelling expenses and secondments; changes in duties; non-competition agreements; promotions, bonuses and gratuities; individual dismissals on grounds of just cause or justified subjective or objective reasons; occupational diseases and accidents; stock option plans; disciplinary codes and regulations; company policies; etc.);
collective issues (collective redundancy and company transfer procedures; company reorganisations, company acquisitions; collective transfers; supplementary company agreements; presence at trade union round tables; direct negotiations with trade unions, etc.);
agency relations, coordinated and continuous collaboration and autonomous professional collaboration (drafting agency and autonomous work agreements; termination of agency and autonomous work relationships, etc.);
contracts from an employment law perspective, supporting clients and contractors both at the generic phase (drawing up the pertinent parts of the relevant contracts and evaluating their correct application in their respective contexts) and at the enforcement phase (monitoring any problems that have arisen or may arise) and in the final phase (assisting companies in the event of changes in or termination of contracts);
management of extrajudicial settlements and disputes initiated by employees in the event of dismissals, demotions, problems related to the development of employment relationships, monetary claims, etc.;
support for personnel departments in relation to human resource management policies and keeping personnel offices constantly up to date with employment legislation and developments in employment case law, including through training provided directly to the employees of the client company;
various procedures, including conciliation with trade unions and before the Territorial Labour Inspectorate and, in administrative terms, before the offices of the various social security bodies (INPS - the National Social Welfare Institution and INAIL - the National Institution for Insurance against Accidents at Work).
We also offer consultancy to company executives and top managers, providing them with the necessary support from the outset of their employment until its cessation, when the need for a determined and effective legal presence is all the more necessary in order to maximise the financial terms of departure from a top position.
We can also assist management personnel in litigating before the ordinary courts, the courts of appeal and the Supreme Court.
We provide advice and support to lawyers who do not usually deal with labour law, and to employment consultants.
We accept domiciliation mandates from colleagues of other courts for litigation before the Employment Section of Ordinary Court and the Court of Appeal of Milan.
We can count on a network of highly qualified and trusted professionals (lawyers specialising in civil law, company law and criminal law; notarial firms, accountants and employment consultants) with whom we have a long track record of synergistic and fruitful collaboration.
These professionals seek our advice or, conversely, are approached by us when employment law issues are intertwined with other issues within their specific competence.
I am the founder and owner of the firm. I was born in 1968 and, after graduating from the Liceo Manzoni in Milan in 1994, I graduated with honours from the Faculty of Employment Law at the University of Milan (Supervisor: Prof. Luciano Spagnuolo Vigorita, Co-supervisor: Prof. Maurizio Del Conte), where I then worked for over ten years as an assistant.

In 2000 I founded my own firm, where I provided judicial and extra-judicial assistance and consultancy to companies, private individuals and coproperty establishments, particularly in the areas of real estate, contracts and contractual drafting.
For some years I have assisted the Bolognesi law firm, providing consultancy in cases where issues of employment law intersect with more strictly civil law-contractual aspects, and matters that require detailed study of a procedural nature.
I have obtained Certificate of Proficiency in English (C2). In June 2019 I passed the higher level Toles examination (Test Of Legal English Skills), with an 80/100 score.

I was born in Milan in 1993 and, after the high school diploma, at the age of 22 I graduated with honours from the Faculty of Law at La Statale University in Milan (march 2016).
Immediately afterwards, I started my professional training at the public prosecutor’s office in Monza, following not only but in particular the subject of accidents at work.
For six months I then worked for an employment and labour law firm in Milan and later I completed my professional training at the legal department of INPS (the Italian National and Social Welfare Institute).
