All lawyers and staff at Milan-based Cocuzza & Associati Studio Legale are happy to announce their 20th birthday.

“How shall we celebrate?” – says the founding  Partner Claudio Cocuzza – “certainly with a big party in the office with our longstanding clients and with many colleagues and friends of the Milanese legal community”

We shall have young Italian painters exhibiting their works in our conference rooms and a journalist of Sky television interviewing the partners in the firm: it will be a way to remember the early and challenging  start of the firm in the 90’, the consolidation years following that,  up until today - where our firm is well positioned in the competitive and ever-changing  market of independent corporate and commercial firms in Italy.

“The future ahead of us – says Giulia Comparini partner in the firm since 2000 -  will evolve with the same haste  in which we shall be able to adapt to the  increasingly complex needs of our clients. This year our Real Estate team was  able to launch “Retail Trends 2013”, an economic and legal analysis of the market of retail real estate as it is evolving in Italy. We have been able to “listen” to our clients and we made a road map of the challenges for those that are continuing to expand in Italy, and among those many of our clients: like Zara, Tommy Hilfiger  and Apple”.

A recent development in the firm has been the addition of Domenica Cotroneo as senior associate in the labour department. Domenica shall give an important contribution in expanding the expertise that Cocuzza & Associati has to serve the many Italian and international clients.
