The Corporate and Commercial Department is made up of 81 professionals, including 22 equity partners and 13 salary partners. We are lawyers and chartered accountants (known as commercialisti in Italy). All our partners are young and very active in daily practice.

We work in close cooperation with Nctm lawyers in other Departments and with financial advisors, auditing companies and qualified external consultants. The Department is present in all offices of the firm, both in Italy and abroad. We provide quick answers from a specialist network.

The Department structure allows us to be fully up to date with, and even anticipate, the constantly changing legal framework.
