Astolfo di Amato & Associati focuses on business law and related fields. With clients ranging from Italian, foreign and multinational companies to individuals, including officers and directors, the Firm’s attorneys specialize in contractual, commercial and financial matters, including complex international transactions. The Firm is particularly noted for its expertise in complex litigation (including class actions), international arbitration, corporate compliance and in advising individuals and companies on business and tax crime issues.
As a result of Prof. Avv. Astolfo Di Amato’s 18 years as a judge, the Firm has an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of the Italian judicial system. Moreover, the Firm’s academic involvement keeps it constantly abreast of the latest legal and political developments. For over 25 years, Prof. Avv. Di Amato has served as a professor at the University of Naples, while Partner Alessio Di Amato is a professor of civil, corporate and business law at the University of Salerno. Several other firm members are university instructors and to complement the Firm’s in-house team, a number of leading academics serve as counsel to the Firm.
A prolific writer, Prof. Avv. Astolfo Di Amato has published 26 books and more than 200 articles on business law and criminal law. He is the director of Trattato di diritto penale dell’impresa (“Treatise on Business Crimes”), and the law reviews Rivista di diritto dell’impresa (“The Business Law Review”) and Diritto ed Economia dei Mezzi di Comunicazione (“Law and Economics of Communications and Media”).
Other particularly prominent practice areas for the Firm include agency, distributorship, franchising and product liability. In recent years, the Firm’s attorneys regularly act for major Italian-based companies in granting rights abroad, as well as foreign based entities granting rights in Italy. And while the client base covers a wide spectrum of industries, the Firm is particularly active in the manufacturing, fashion, transportation, consumer products, construction, sports and banking areas.
Through its offices in Rome, Milan, and Naples, the Firm offers comprehensive coverage throughout Italy and through the Firm’s membership in the Multilaw network, its clients enjoy seamless multijurisdictional legal service.
