Winner of

Law firm of the year: Italy

Legance - Avvocati Associati

Within just a decade of existence, Legance has grown to a 222-lawyer firm with offices in Milan, Rome, London and New York and a turnover of some €85m. As its international presence implies, its focus has always been resolutely cross-border, with a London office launched in 2013 and New York in 2017. Global clients have flocked to its doors; its roster includes Albertis Infrastructruas, Apax Partners, Blackstone, Change Capital Partners, Fortress Investment Group and Goldman Sachs. The firm has worked on creating a strongly inclusive culture for women and LGBT staff and a focus on pro bono that recently led to the establishment of a steering group. The judges noted its ‘strong financials’ and ‘collaborative ethos’. They concluded: ‘In a decade this firm has risen to be a member of the elite inner circle at the top of the Italian legal profession. It has been a year of continued impressive progress.’

 

Highly commended: Chiomenti

In a year in which its management team was revamped with new senior and managing partners, executive partners and the brand new post of a general counsel, Chiomenti continued its strong performance in corporate and financial work. Fintech has been a successful focus for the firm, while it also persisted in its efforts to improve diversity. The judges said: ‘This is a firm that impresses for the quality of its work and people. For all its establishment credentials, its commitment to evolution is evident in its imaginative approach.’
