Law Firm of the Year: Italy

Portolano Cavallo


Portolano Cavallo has undergone an impressive transformation of late, taking it from pure TMT to a more sector-driven approach. Founded in 2001, The Lawyer’s Italian law firm of the year has developed a strategy that now sees it acting for clients in the bustling life sciences market, as well as in entertainment, fintech and fashion. Judges said there was “evidence of success” in Portolano Cavallo’s new approach, particularly in life sciences as the firm joined the Biolegis network of the most prominent European law firms in the industry. Throughout the year the firm has also attracted recruits from both the Italian and global elite, announcing hires from BonelliErede and Allen & Overy.

With double-digit revenue and headcount growth in the last year, Portolano Cavallo has never been in a better position to lead on the most pressing digitisation issues for banking, media and life sciences clients across the globe.
