For 40 years, Best Lawyers has highlighted the extraordinary accomplishments of those in the legal profession around the world. Through an extensive and careful nomination and peer review voting process, we offer unbiased legal referrals from the best attorneys in the world.

Lawyers who are nominated for consideration are voted on by currently recognized Best Lawyers working in the same practice area and located in the same geographic region. Our awards and recognitions are based purely on the feedback we receive from these top lawyers. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo a thorough verification process to make sure they are currently still in private practice. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers.

The 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in Italy recognizes the professional excellence of 826 lawyers in 48 practice areas, including 36 “Lawyer of the Year” recipients. “Lawyer of the Year” honors are awarded annually to only one lawyer per practice area in each region with extremely high overall feedback from their peers, making it an exceptional distinction.
