About Italian Desk
Flinn’s dedicated Italian speaking lawyers draw upon a deep understanding of the similarities and differences between the Italian and the Belgian cultures as well as our client’s business requirements in order to ensure their success throughout each stage of their internationalization process.
Our Italian Desk focus strongly on Italian clients that invest or trade in Belgium, as well as on Belgian/international companies or individuals wishing to expand their businesses to Italy.
We have extensive experience advising Italian clients who are involved in transactions with a Belgian counterparty, wish to establish themselves or want to invest in Belgium. We counsel in corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, distribution, general commercial contracts and litigation, intellectual property issues, labour law, bankruptcy and more. We are experienced in representing clients in many industries, including fashion and retail, manufacturing, food and beverage and in the mechanical engineering sector.
When advising local clients investing and conducting business in Italy, our Italian Desk works closely with Italian leading law firms, including both large firms and small boutiques with highly focused practices, with whom we have forged longstanding and trustworthy working relationship, to ensure that all matters are worked on in a cost-effective and under the highest quality standards.
This experience has contributed to our well-established reputation.
