Italian Practice

As the US advisor and outside general counsel to many Italian companies and their owners, Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP offers Italian clients doing business in the US the advantage of our attorneys’ extensive experience in more than 45 specialized practice areas, coupled with a deep understanding of the Italian culture.

We assist Italian companies in a variety of sizes and industries to invest in or establish, expand and maintain operations in the United States. In partnership with local counsel, we also assist US companies and individuals seeking to invest in or expand operations in Italy.

Our attorneys have strong credentials and experience in a variety of practice areas and they provide comprehensive support to our Italian clients on matters ranging from initial formation, site selection and incentives negotiations, day-to-day operational matters, extraordinary transactions, and when necessary, litigation and alternative dispute resolution.

We are dedicated to providing exceptional value through high quality, cost effective, bilingual legal services. We combine the level of service and depth of knowledge of big law firms with the responsiveness, practical insight and business-focus of an in-house legal team. With a strong foundation in the Italian customs and practices, our attorneys can help Italian companies and individuals navigating the differences between Italian and US laws and cultures. We are committed to helping our clients grow their business and manage their legal risks, while always monitoring their legal fees. Whether assisting start-ups or established businesses, we choose the right team to best serve the specific needs of our clients at each stage of their existence.
