Portolano Cavallo works with an international focus: over 60% of our clients are headquartered abroad, mainly in the United States and most of our work is done in English. The firm, therefore, advises clients on issues of a transnational nature, requiring an understanding of other legal systems in collaboration with professionals from other jurisdictions and the ability to manage cultural differences.
We are not affiliated with foreign law firms or legal networks. We collaborate with firms from various countries, leaders in their respective fields, not under exclusivity arrangements, but because of the quality of our work and service.
All our professionals are able to interact with clients in English and French.
Their training program includes internal courses and workshops abroad to perfect their English, as well as orientation and Master’s courses on the Anglo-Saxon and USA legal systems. Most of our professionals have also worked or studied abroad for significant periods of time.
Portolano Cavallo’s French Desk provides legal assistance to French or Francophone firms who wish to expand into the Italian market, or, if already operating in Italy, require specialized legal assistance in support of their activities.
