We have been dealing with commercial and corporate law issues since the establishment of the firm and the work we do for clients in this area has always been a substantial part of our business.

The quality of the advice we provide and have provided to our clients over the years on countless major transactions makes Pavia e Ansaldo stand out among the many law firms who offer such services.

Our team works closely with clients to successfully accomplish both complex extraordinary corporate transactions and in dealing with the relative day-to-day business. We provide ongoing assistance to listed corporations and their shareholders in relation to matters of corporate governance and regulatory compliance and in their dealings with regulatory authorities.

We are experts in defining company structure, drafting contracts to regulate relationships between shareholders and investors, and structuring contracts and managing relationships between the company and its directors and key managers.

The department assists clients, both in Italy and abroad, in drawing up and executing commercial agreements for the production and sale of goods and services and agreements that govern relations with the sales network (distribution, storage, franchising, sales licences), with suppliers (suppliers, sub-suppliers, contract staff) and with lenders (leasing, factoring, trade credit disposal).

Pavia e Ansaldo is an independent Italian law firm which has been operating in Italy and abroad for over 50 years. Our 6 offices, in Milan, Rome, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Tokyo and Barcelona, 22 specialised departments, 8 foreign desks and over 130 lawyers and other professionals provide advice to our clients on all aspects of business law.

Since its inception, the firm has worked towards creating a structure to meet the needs of clients on an international level. With our lawyers in our Spain, Russia and Japan offices, our 8 Foreign Desks, staffed by lawyers qualified to practice both in Italy and in the respective countries with which they work, and our international network, we are ideally placed to advise Italian clients on their business abroad and foreign clients on their business in Italy and other countries.

Our professionals, according to the client’s needs, provide legal assistance in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Turkmen and Uzbek.

We have chosen to maintain our status as an independent firm and to establish strong relationships with the most qualified legal firms in those countries where we do not have our own office, with a view to providing a personalized service worldwide and the most advantageous solutions for our clients.
