THE FIRM

Founded in 1991, La Scala has been serving business clients for 25 years.
One of Italy’s leading practices for banking and insolvency litigation, the Firm is now also a recognised leader in advising on matters of credit recovery.
Throughout its history, it has both advised companies (on corporate, restructuring, IP and IT, regulatory matters, white-collar cri-me matters, tax) and had civil and family law practices.

In addition to its main office in Milan, the Firm has offices in Rome, Turin, Bologna, Florence, Venice, Vicenza, Padua and Ancona.
Its ranks include 170 lawyers and more than 100 supporting staff.
It is a longstanding advisor to the major Italian banking groups, a large number of commercial and industrial enterprises, and a variety of other financial institutions.

Well into its third decade of consistent growth, the Firm owes its success to the close and enduring relationships it has en-joyed with its clients.
The Firm and its advice are especially renowned for its reliability, innovation, integrity and timeliness.

The Firm has 19 specialised teams, each headed by a partner.
There are 11 support departments with functions such as ma-nagement control, reporting, information technology and knowledge management, all working to make our lawyers as efficient and effective as possible.
We regard teamwork as essential and prioritise our lawyers’ continuing educa-tion and development.
Our lawyers are recruited from a wide variety of backgrounds, both in terms of cultural traditions and personal characteri-stics, and their diversity enriches our Firm.

The Firm has been publishing the web maga-zine Iusletter since 2012. Updated daily, the publicly-accessible site is a fully-fledged web portal, providing infor-mation on a range of legal issues within the Firm’s practice areas.
In 2013, Iusletter developed and launched its own apps for Android and Apple devices – one of the first  produced by an Italian law firm.
Thousands consult Iusletter every day, for the articles prepared in-house, summaries of key news developments, special reports and video alerts;and every year. Hundreds attend the professional development seminars that Iusletter organises.

Since 2013, the Firm has been pursuing a project of cultural education, in particular for its lawyers, focused around the Auditorium it has in Milan, named after Piero Calamandrei.
