LEGAL NOTICE: “LEXIA Avvocati” is the brand under which the member firms of “Associazione LEXIA Avvocati” operate and provide professional services. Together, these firms form the “LEXIA Avvocati Network”. “LEXIA Avvocati” is often used to refer either to individual firms within the LEXIA Avvocati Network or to several or all of them collectively.

The LEXIA Avvocati Network consists of firms which are separate legal entities. The firms that make up the network are committed to working together to provide quality service offerings for clients in Italy and throughout the world. Firms in the LEXIA Avvocati Network are members in, or have other connections to, Associazione LEXIA Avvocati, an Italian private association regulated by articles 36 ff. of Italian Civil Code. LEXIA Avvocati does not practice legal services nor accountancy, nor provide any services to clients. Rather its purpose is to act as a coordinating entity for member firms in the LEXIA Avvocati Network. Focusing on key areas such as strategy, brand, and risk and quality, the Management Committee of LEXIA Avvocati develops and implements policies and initiatives to achieve a common and coordinated approach among individual firms where appropriate. Member firms of LEXIA Avvocati can use the LEXIA Avvocati name and draw on the resources and methodologies of the LEXIA Avvocati Network. In addition, member firms may draw upon the resources of other member firms and/or secure the provision of professional services by other member firms and/or other entities. In return, member firms are bound to abide by certain common policies and to maintain the standards of the LEXIA Avvocati Network as put forward by Associazione LEXIA Avvocati.

The LEXIA Avvocati Network is not one partnership and LEXIA Avvocati member firms are not otherwise legal partners with each other. Many of the member firms have legally registered names which contain “LEXIA Avvocati”, however there is no ownership by Associazione LEXIA Avvocati. A member firm cannot act as agent of Associazione LEXIA Avvocati or any other member firm, cannot obligate Associazione LEXIA Avvocati or any other member firm, and is liable only for its own acts or omissions and not those of Associazione LEXIA Avvocati or any other member firm. Similarly, Associazione LEXIA Avvocati cannot act as an agent of any member firm, cannot obligate any member firm, and is liable only for its own acts or omissions.

Under art. 10, para. 3, Law 31.12.2012, n. 247, we point out that services provided by firms of the LEXIA Avvocati Network, to which this document refers, are professional services, thus subject to limitations set out in articles 2222 ff. of Italian Civil Code.
