About us

We are a business law firm


SCD Avvocati & Partners

We are a business law firm, as our work is primarily focused on commercial, corporate, international and EU law. Within these broad areas, we also regularly cover insurance and reinsurance, insolvency, intellectual property, real estate and environmental law.

Legal representation can be ensured before all levels of the Italian and the EU court system, as well as in the context of mediation and arbitral proceedings. Our partners have served several times as arbitrators and are therefore familiar with the relevant rules and procedures.


Our working method

We try to be as flexible as possible in the interest of the client, which applies to our working method as well as to fee calculation and billing. In this vein, we are always ready to partner up with colleagues whenever we feel that an assignment feels partially outside our area of competence.

Our clients include multinationals, small and medium enterprises (sometime start-ups) as well as individuals. From time to time we act on behalf of sovereign States or international organizations and we are frequently advising foreign law firms on matters of Italian law.
