New independent firm from former Dewey&Lebouef Italy attorneys
24 May, 2012
The attorneys of Dewey&LeBouef will now operate as ‘Grimaldi Studio Legale’ thanks to the agreement with Vittoro Grimaldi and Francesco Sciaudone aimed at making the new firm an ‘institution’ in the legal market.
The firm has 130 lawyers based at via Fratelli Gabba 4 in Milan, at Via Pinciana 25 in Rome and at 30 Boulevard de Waterloo, in Brussels.
The firm, led by Bruno Gattai (pictured) with Stefano Speroni heading the Rome office and Francesco Sciaudone the Brussel’s one, intends to consolidate and strengthen its existing position in the Italian market with a strong international focus and a view to become an institution by providing its clients with unrivalled legal services.
The firm leverages on the expertise of its lawyers’ presence in the market and their recognition as leaders in their respective practices, continuing their mutual longstanding tradition for quality.
The domain of the firm will be ‘@grimaldilex.com’.
“I am quite happy,” says Bruno Gattai, managing partner of the new firm. “As the legendary Vittorio Grimaldi and the rainmaker Francesco Sciaudone will be with us. Operating under the new name will combine our forces: tradition, innovation, quality with an international vision. All of these values represent the way we look at our professions in line with Grimaldi tradition.”
Asked to comment, Vittorio Grimaldo remarked dryly that ‘to lose 60 lawyers may be regarded as a misfortune; to gain 120 is something of a miracle’.
