The Lawyer

Portolano Cavallo won as “Law firm of the year: Italy” at The Lawyer European Awards 2018!

We are proud to say that we have been shortlisted since the very first edition, for nine consecutive years.

In the last two editions we have also been “Highly commended” in the same category.

Here is the full 2018 shortlist; we were in good company as always:

·       Bonelli Erede

·       Chiomenti

·       Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners (Highly Commended)

·       Legance – Avvocati Associati

·       Nctm Studio Legale

Here is what the judges told about us:

“Portolano Cavallo has undergone an impressive transformation of late, taking it from pure TMT to a more sector-driven approach. Founded in 2001, The Lawyer’s Italian law firm of the year has developed a strategy that now sees it acting for clients in the bustling life sciences market, as well as in entertainmentfintech and fashion.

Judges said there was “evidence of success” in Portolano Cavallo’s new approach, particularly in life sciences as the firm joined the Biolegis network of the most prominent European law firms in the industry. Throughout the year the firm has also attracted recruits from both the Italian and global elite, announcing hires from BonelliErede and Allen & Overy.

With double-digit revenue and headcount growth in the last year, Portolano Cavallo has never been in a better position to lead on the most pressing digitisation issues for bankingmedia and life sciences clients across the globe.”


The ceremony took place on Thursday 15th March at London’s Grange Tower Bridge.
