Acting as arbitrators and taking part in arbitral proceedings as counsel to a party is traditionally one of the main areas of activity of our lawyers.
Particularly active in arbitration are Rocco Bonzanigo and Franco Brusa, who have considerable experience – especially in the international arena – in both institutional arbitration (at the International Chamber of Commerce – CCI/ICC – in Paris, the Lugano Chamber of Commerce and the Milan National and International Arbitration Chamber) and ad hoc arbitration, as well as Lorenzo Moor.
Mr. Bonzanigo is a long-standing member of the committee of the Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA), of the ICC’s Commission suisse d’arbitrage, of the committee of the ASA group per la Svizzera italiana (GASI) and has ties with other institutions actively engaged in arbitration. Mr. Brusa, too, is an arbitrator with the International Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Solari, too, enjoys a solid record of experience in the areas of international and domestic arbitrations.
Our attorneys assist and represent clients before the state courts at all levels, before arbitration panels and in dealings with administrative authorities. Advocacy encompasses all areas of law practice, particularly contract, commercial and banking law, civil law, intellectual property law, public, administrative and tax law, but also criminal law, especially in connection with financial matters and international judicial assistance.
Special attention is devoted to the in-depth examination of the legal aspects of each case, evaluating the probabilities of success, looking into settlement opportunities and analyzing the necessities of discovery, not least with a view to preventing the filing of actions that make little sense.
Domestic and international arbitral proceedings, in which our lawyers often are involved as counsel or as arbitrators, deserve a special mention.
Legal advice is provided not only for the benefit of individual clients but also, to a considerable extent, for private institutions and public agencies, in the areas of contract, commercial, banking and administrative law.
This activity extends to reviewing and drawing up contracts, issuing legal opinions, working out regulations, bylaws and standards, as well as analyzing the feasibility of business and corporate projects such as restructuring plans, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) involving Swiss as well as foreign corporations.
The Firm also offers to clients assistance toward the peaceful settlement of business and civil-law controversies by way of mediation.
Mediation, a vehicle that is increasingly gaining favour over the traditional judicial disposition of conflicts, is – within the Firm – the province of Mr. Franco Brusa, who has since 2002 been the holder of the specific mediator’s license awarded by the Swiss Attorneys’ Federation (FSA) and is also a member of the committee of the Southern-Swiss Chapter of the Swiss Chamber for Business Mediation (CSMC).
In addition to providing legal advice the Firm’s notarial services arrange to draw up public deeds in business (setting up corporations, increases or reductions of share capital, mergers, changes in corporate structures), estate (last wills and testaments, inheritance agreements) and real property matters (real estate conveyances, donations, mortgage deeds).
In addition, our (civil law) notaries –Rocco Bonzanigo, Stefano Bolla, Franco Brusa, Filippo Solari and Lorenzo Moor – are entitled to issue authentications and certifications.
