PRATICA COLLABORATIVA

Competence, worthiness and professionalism,
oriented to the best result for the Client

An approach that over the years has enabled us to establish, with many of our Clients, long-term relationships based on a solid confidence, and that - being aware of the possible inefficiences of the legal and judicial system - always urges us to explore also alternative dispute resolutions (mediation, assisted negotiation, conciliation / arbitration, collaborative practice in the field of family law) in order to reach the best solution for the Client.

"Professional is one who places himself at the service of the legal system and the institution in which he works, meticulously complying with the technical and ethical rules of the profession."

Profile

Studio Legale Associato Zanotelli

Our law firm was founded in 2000 by the union of the different experiences of the two founders: Avv. Laura Zanotelli, consolidated a significant expertise in labor law, by both the activity of PhD at the Universities of Milan and Pavia, and the collaboration in the law firm associated with Ernst & Young in Milan; while Avv. Eric Zanotelli has been for years in charge of the Legal Dept. of a leading company in the graphic arts, before turning to free professional.
These skills have progressively expanded, by the study and a constant professional updating, so that today we are able to offer qualified assistance, in both labor and commercial and corporate law and many other areas of civil law.
Thanks to a close-knit team and a network of reliable correspondents, we operate with maximum efficiency on nearly all the national territory.

Areas of expertise

Our firm is active in both non-contentious activity (preventive consultancy; drafting of deeds, contracts, regulations, agreements etc.) and pre-litigation or litigation assistance, especially on the following subjects:

  • Commercial and corporate law

    We provide qualified advice and assistance in the negotiation and establishment of business relations with Italian and foreign counterparts, and in the drafting of the relevant contracts, such as - for example - sale, commercial agency, supply, distribution, franchising, leasing, rental, financing and mortgage, service, joint venture, consignment stock, storage, and collateral or instrumental contracts (guarantees, letters of patronage, etc.).

    We also assist our Italian and international Clients in the acquisition / sale of investments and businesses, setting up, merger or demerger of companies, clusters ventures and joint ventures, following the operation from the early stages of negotiation, drafting both the preparatory or collateral documentations and contracts (confidentiality agreements, secrecy agreements, letters of intent, memorandum of understanding, shareholders agreements, guarantees, etc.) and the main contract (preliminary and / or final agreement as the transaction may require).

  • Labour law

    We assist both employed/self-employed workers and employers in establishing the most appropriate type of agreement and entering into the contract of employment; we also offer our assistance at the pre-contentious or contentious stage of termination of the contract of employment on the ground of resignation or dismissal, and with negotiating and drafting amicable settlements or, if no agreement can be reached, representing our client in court.

  • Family law

    Our law firm offers assistance and advice for the resolution of family disputes, with particular attention to those related to the crisis of the couple, i.e. the proceedings for separation and divorce and the regulation of custody and maintenance of the sons of unmarried parents.

    This is a sensitive branch of the civil law, as the interests involved never affect the economic aspect only, thus such disputes are potentially destructive for the relationships.

    With this awareness, we also propose the so-called “Collaborative Practice”, a method of resolution of family disputes based on the principles of good faith, transparency and confidentiality, in which the parties, assisted by counsel and experts of family relationships, focus their real interests in order to identify - with a strong personal contribution - future-oriented solutions.

    Afar from a merely conflictual approach, which is governed by the logic ‘winner/loser’, the goal of Collaborative Practice is to support the parents in reaching agreements based on the mutual respect and comprehension of the reciprocal needs, suitable therefore to last over the time.

    Laura Zanotelli is a member of both A.I.A.F. (the Italian Association of family-law lawyers) and A.I.A.D.C. (the Italian association of Collaborative Practice professionals)

  • Insolvency law

    Our firm assists its clients in filing requests for a declaration of insolvency of their debtors, preparing applications to prove debts in insolvency proceedings or claims for the return of goods belonging to their clients (companies or workers), and represents them during the composition stages. We also assist debtors in accessing the procedures relating to composition with creditors (Law n. 3/2012) and preparing the corresponding plans and agreements.

  • Real estate and condominium law

    We assist our clients in drafting agreements for the use of real estate and those relating to transfer of title (including agreements for sale and preliminary agreements), with the corresponding preparatory and ancillary agreements, and also provide assistance with managing the contractual relationship. We furthermore deal with condominium law, acting for either the condominium management or the apartment owners.

  • Third-party liability and damages

    Our firm offers expert advice and assistance with both non-contentious negotiations and court proceedings, if any, and claiming damages for unlawful, negligent or fraudulent conduct by third parties, whatever the source (road traffic, breach of health and safety legislation, defective product, crime, professional liability, etc.).

  • Debt recovery

    Our firm provides assistance with debt recovery activities, both at the non-contentious stage and in the subsequent court proceedings, if any. The first stage focuses on reaching agreement with the debtor, on the basis of suitably guaranteed payment plans; if this result cannot be achieved, our firm assists with activities designed to obtain an enforceable title, and with the next stage involving enforcement against the debtor’s assets, with the aid of the new online search tools offered by the procedure.

"Lawyers exercise their profession with full freedom and independence, protecting their clients’ rights and interests on the basis of thorough knowledge of the law, thus contributing to the implementation of the legal system to serve the ends of justice "

(from the Preamble to the Italian Lawyers’ Code of Conduct)

Refresher courses

Studying and continuing education are not only an ethical obligation, but a necessity and an outstanding asset; that is why our firm devotes time and resources to the growth of its professionals and collaborators; these are the most recent refresher courses that we have attended :
