‘Our firm was going down and the end was close: and then we started to be assisted by Studio Ubertazzi. The lawyers of Studio that I’m dealing with are very skilled and competent. They deliver on time, explain things well and are always available to clarify my doubts. Also, they bring great results. One might think these things should be normal and yet, from my experience I can say they are unique.’

‘Prof. T. Ubertazzi is a lawyer and professor in one. I believe this compilation renders him really good in what he does. That and his exceptional skills: his particular intuition and determination has led us through the darkest times for our company to the state where it is now: with perspectives for the future and business that is going well.’

‘Studio Ubertazzi assists several of my companies and we went through a lot with them. The lawyers of the Studio are particularly brilliant and efficient.

Their methods and insights are absolutely unique and their services are unrivalled.’

The story of Studio Ubertazzi is one of success and is now in its third generation of business.
However, the firm has roots in gene-
rations of familial tradition which, thanks to the contribution of other family members (Stefano Ubertazzi, Francesco Monti, Bonifacio Monti, Gianfranco Cattaneo) has always been dedicated to the study of law and its interconnections with the economy.


Founded in 1947 by Giovanni Maria Ubertazzi, the firm immediately presented itself as a concrete response to the needs created by the economic situation affecting the country after the Second World War. The firm immediately showed a marked tendency to assist national and international companies.


With Luigi Carlo Ubertazzi the firm faced a historical period characterized by an intense transformation of the economic and social fabric. After the conflicts of the 1970s, we are witnessing the diffusion of new economic operations which increasingly require highly specialized legal skills. The affirmation of a new way of conceiving communication in the field of advertising and technological evolution made more effective legal protection necessary and, was accompanied by an increasingly strategic vision of companies, which were increasingly projected towards the international scene.


The challenges of the third generation (Benedetta Ubertazzi, Tommaso Maria Ubertazzi) are those related to the complexity of a now globalized world that is characterized by intense and sometimes exaggerated competitiveness between production realities. It is a historical period in which we are simultaneously witnessing the birth of new legal situations and new needs, such as those linked to ecological transformation and digitalization. In this context the Firm affirms and develops its consulting activity in a globalized world.


We find specific solutions for all legal issues related to the activities and commercial and corporate management of companies, offering day-to-day advice as well as extraordinary activities.
We provide assistance in bankruptcy and restructuring procedures. In this field we are among the best Italian law firms in the field of business restructuring and bankruptcy law (Legal 500) with particular regard to recovery plans, agreements and debt restructuring. In addition, we assist several companies in extraordinary administration some of which have primary importance with companies in Italy and abroad.
In litigation, we have assisted our partners in countless disputes concerning intellectual property rights, unfair competition, corporate law, contract law, civil liability (especially in the area of liability of directors and auditors of companies and medical liability) and in various disputes involving issues of foreign ownership, VAT payments and transfer pricing.
Out of court, we have offered numerous consultations in the areas of corporate, business, intellectual property, EU and international law. We have successfully led to the conclusion of profitable contracts and transactions recognized as optimal for the assisted companies.
As UNESCO facilitators and legal experts at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, we actively collaborate with numerous entities and organizations, both Italian and foreign, within programs dedicated to the protection and management of local cultural heritage and the promotion of sustainable development.
