Litigation in Italy

LCA Studio Legale

LCA is an independent law firm born from the dream of a group of professionals with renowned experience and specialized in company legal assistance. Offices are in Italy, in Milan (headquarters), Genoa and Treviso (inside the venture incubator H-FARM), and in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) where it operates in International Partnership with IAA Law Firm.
The law firm has gained a strong expertise in civil, commercial and corporate, banking, finance and tax law, in real estate and construction law, in labour, immigration and transportation law, in competition and EU law, in intellectual property law, as well as in art law, in family law and in the protection of family assets.

The flexibility and specific strengths of a leaner structure, modelled on the best of what the Italian legal tradition has to offer, combined with the organisation and experiences of major international law firms, grants LCA a highly customised consultancy service tailored to each client, whether a start-up, a medium sized firm or a listed multinational company.


Litigation, Arbitration and ADR

LCA represents Italian and foreign clients in court proceedings and arbitrations, especially in the areas of corporate and commercial law. The approach taken by our lawyers aims at defining the best strategy to combine the effective protection of our clients’ rights with the need to efficiently resolve commercial disputes.

PREVENTING AND RESOLVING DISPUTES – In addition to leading the contentious juncture, LCA’s litigation team provides its support from the very early stages of commercial relations, as we are aware that preventing a dispute is the best and cheapest way to resolve it.

LITIGATION – LCA manages several court litigation proceedings before Italian and European Courts, with a particular focus on corporate and commercial law:

  • shareholder litigation;
  • disputes stemming from M&A transactions;
  • D&O liability, including in bankruptcy proceedings;
  • construction matters;
  • consumer litigation and unfair commercial practices;
  • protection of personal and corporate reputation;
  • banking and finance litigations;
  • disputes concerning software and IT contracts.

LCA’s eclectic team also supports businesses in a variety of labour, insurance, tax and IP disputes.

Moreover, thanks to the admission of some of the firm’s lawyers to foreign bars and to an international network of selected foreign law firms that share our fundamental values, LCA can manage proceedings before non-Italian courts, instructing and directing the local lawyers and ensuring that our clients can conveniently deal with just one law firm for all their needs.
