Italian Desk

Seddons Italian Desk offers legal services to companies and individuals doing business in Italy as well as those seeking advice on English Law. Our team of lawyers, based in London, are specialists in the areas of dispute resolution, commercial litigation, derivatives litigation, personal injury, private client disputes, property, corporate and employment.

For many years we have worked with companies and individuals across the two countries and work with a network of trusted advisors in Italy including law firms, professional advisors and financial institutions.

Whether we represent a company or an individual we have a commercial and practical approach to solving problems and finding solutions. We view each client and each legal issue afresh, tailoring our service and advice to our clients’ needs. We work hard to make the legal process as transparent and straight forward as possible, guiding you through each stage of a transaction or project.

Recent Experience

We work closely with the Italian Consulate on cases involving Italian citizens living in the UK or who are here on holiday. We have worked extensively with Italian citizens on establishing themselves in the UK and assisting them with the challenges and opportunities of doing so. Our work could involve assisting with a property investment or transaction, setting up business structures, dealing with contentious probate, employment issues or commercial litigation, amongst others.

We also have substantial experience working on high profile cases within Italy and we are currently representing a number of Italian local authorities on derivative/financial instruments litigation including:

  • Regione Lazio
  • Regione Lombardia
  • Comune di Ferrara
  • Provincia di Pisa

The Italian Desk is led by Germana Lo Iacono-Smith, partner, an Italian national who is bilingual, and has a vast amount of experience working across the two countries.
