Italy Practice

Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s Italy Practice is a multidisciplinary team of attorneys and professionals offering domestic and cross-border legal advice, also drawing on legal expertise from practice groups across the firm. Combining a deep-rooted understanding of the nuanced cultural differences between the U.S. and Italian legal systems and knowledge of relative marketplace conditions and opportunities, the Italy Practice is uniquely positioned to help clients achieve their business objectives. A familiarity with the culture of Italian business transactions allows us to offer clients sophisticated legal counsel and strategic business direction. Our bilingual attorneys, many native to Italy and Italian-qualified, possess an unparalleled ability to manage complex situations efficiently in both English and Italian.

We proactively guide large multinational companies, emerging businesses, and individuals expanding their operations into the U.S. and, through a trustworthy and well-vetted network of local professionals, conducting business or investing in Italy. Italian companies regularly turn to our lawyers to serve as outside general counsel for their U.S. subsidiaries. Our clients’ industries run the gamut and include luxury goods, fashion, footwear, lingerie and legwear, beauty and cosmetics, furniture and lighting, housewares, art, jewelry, toys, sporting goods, hi-fi, architecture and design, photography, public relations, food and beverage, wine and spirits, hospitality, publishing, e-commerce, logistics services and technology, real estate and construction, alternative energy, industrial machinery, equipment and tools, and not-for-profit.

Moreover, we value our clients and appreciate their goals. We provide dedicated, personalized services that are delivered efficiently and cost-effectively while offering the best solutions for their matters. Our firm’s multiple practice groups serve as additional resources in a wide range of legal areas. With offices in New York, New Jersey, and California and reliable local counsel relationships throughout the country, we serve Italian businesses in the most important markets in the U.S.

From corporate formation to day-to-day legal needs, we provide strategic counseling, practical business solutions, and tailored legal representation to our clients.
