The firm

Founded in 1994 by Mr Fabio Liparota, lawyer, Liparota Law Firm has its main office in the city centre of Rome.

After the first years of experience in the capital, it started to be active in Milan as well, through a corresponding fiduciary law firm.

From 1995 to 2005 Liparota Law Firm experienced very significant growth, thus becoming a reference legal boutique for those clients who pay particular attention to the direct relationship with professionals. Liparota Law Firm has mainly specialised in the thematic areas of broad-based administrative, civil and company law, as well as labour law, and it is now primarily active in Italy.

Since 2006, the founder, following the trend of the market and prompted by his clients, has started to feel the need to make his law firm international in scope.

Today, through a network of corresponding law firms, Liparota Law Firm can assist its clients in different parts of the world.
