The firm

Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci is one of the largest specialist employment law firms in Italy.

Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci is one of the five founding members of the Ius Laboris Alliance, which today is the largest international organisation of employment law firms. Through the Alliance the firm is able to offer clients the highest standard of legal services across 53 countries: truly global coverage with local knowledge and expertise. The firm regularly manages cross-border projects across multiple jurisdictions, always finding innovative solutions tailored to its clients’ ever-changing needs.

As highly regarded practitioners in their fields, Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci boasts a long history of collaboration with the leading Italian financial daily, Il Sole 24 Ore. The firm’s publications also feature regularly in law journals and academic resources, and its senior lawyers are frequent speakers at national and international conferences.

Said to stand out for his expertise and sound judgement, Franco Toffoletto is widely regarded as one of the best employment lawyers in Italy, described as an exceptional talent and an extremely confident lawyer. In 2011 he was awarded the top legal award for Best Employment Lawyer of the Year, the same award won in 2012 by senior partner Raffaele De Luca Tamajo. He is currently the editor-in-chief of the Italian Employment Law Journal and was president of the Italian Association for Labour Law and Social Security (AIDLASS) until 2012. He was also professeur invité of Comparative Employment Law at Paris-Nanterre University and has contributed to many parliamentary and regional committees in both consultancy and law-making roles.

In 2016 the firm was awarded ‘Employment Law Firm of the Year’ at the Legalcommunity Labour Awards, as well as ‘Law Firm of the Year: Innovation’ at the TopLegal Awards. Following an award nomination at the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards, Europe, the Financial Times recognised the firm in 2015 as a ‘standout’ firm for its use of technology in its FT Innovative Lawyers Report.
