Legance is an independent Italian law firm with international spirit and scope

We are an independent Italian law firm with the capabilities and global coverage necessary to assist clients on cross-border transactions and across multiple jurisdictions, delivering effective, innovative and integrated solutions that combine local expertise and global experience to meet any legal challenge.

The decision to operate independently from an international network originated from our desire to maintain a strong national identity and organisational and operational flexibility.

Our reputation of offering the highest level of international competence, scope and insight is guaranteed through our close collaboration with leading foreign law firms rigorously selected for each practice area.

Through a so-called “Country Partners” system over the years we have built a solid and proven network of non-exclusive relationships that enable us to assist clients on international transactions with responsiveness and flexibility. We select the most appropriate partners in each jurisdiction through a competitive procedure based on specific criteria defined with our clients.

We provide market-leading international assistance across multiple countries and jurisdictions, working with leading foreign law firms in all European and US jurisdictions as well as in the main economic areas of interest, including the LATAM region, North and South Africa, the Balkan States, Turkey, the Middle East and Far East.

Our London and New York offices are testament to our Firm’s international vocation and continuous commitment to strengthening our global presence while guaranteeing proximity to international clients and partners.

Recognising the increasing importance of relations between Italy and China, we have set up a dedicated China Desk at our Milan office, led by Gabriele Capecchi and coordinated by Luca Chiang.
