Legance is an independent law firm with offices in Milan, Rome, London and New York.

Founded in 2007 by a group of acclaimed partners who grew up in the same law firm, Legance distinguishes itself as a point of reference in the legal market for both clients and institutions.

The firm’s rapid growth, from 84 lawyers in 2007 to over 230 professionals in 2018, is undisputed evidence of its strength in legal services.

The law firm’s achievements are the result of a consistent strategy focused on creating value around the institutional nature of the firm, where the value of the group is regarded as a trait that amplifies each individual’s qualities and skills. Legance has unquestionably positioned itself at the top of the national and international market, thanks to the constant attention to its clients’ needs, the careful evaluation of business goals and an unconventional approach aimed at anticipating the client’s needs.

It is not a coincidence that the name Legance evokes unity and excellence: these fundamental principles have been at the foundation of the law firm from the beginning and have supported its standing. 

Thanks to its strong international practice Legance can support clients from several different geographical areas, and can organise and coordinate multi-jurisdictional teams whenever required.

Independence, dynamism, responsiveness and internationality are the hallmarks of the firm.
