Commercial contracts

We can give you the best advice on every kind of commercial contract: from complex cases outside of your normal commercial experience (outsourcing contracts, for example) to ordinary operations, such as revising existing contracts, drafting and reviewing general sales and purchase conditions for goods and services and issuing and participating in calls for supply and procurement contract – both private and public.

We are adept at working alongside in-house counsel and the people who handle contractual relations: purchasing departments, sales departments, site managers, etc.

Today we are facing a constant rise in aspects such as the abuse of economic dependence, compliance with consumer codes and sub-contracting regulations, tax issues in infra-group transactions, and risk assessment for possible insolvency proceedings by counterparties and contractual remedies. We create innovative solutions for every one of these issues.

Our sights go beyond national borders thanks to our Best Friends and worldwide network of law firms; we can therefore advise you on drafting contracts governed by foreign national laws.

Whether you’re a large company, a multinational or an SME looking to develop or restructure your business, we’ll be there with clear, accurate solutions.

We have experience in countless sectors, thanks to our sector specialised focus teams: from the industrial – construction, manufacturing, chemicals, fashion, property, information technology and communications – to the more strictly regulated, such as banking, insurance, transport, energy and healthcare.


Here’s what sets us apart

  • We have extensive knowledge of your sectors and of the most common contractual issues, thanks to our years of managing due diligence procedures for M&A deals and both domestic and international disputes. Added to all this is our competence in IP, antitrust and restructuring/insolvency cases
  • Our partners and consultants include former general counsel from companies in the petrochemical, construction and defence/aerospace industries, giving us a thorough understanding of the peculiarities of each sector and the challenges faced by in-house counsel
