The law firm in Milan

ADF & Partners is an international law firm, founded in 2018 by Johan de Flines. It is based in the center of Milan and composed of Italian and Dutch lawyers specialized in Italian business, corporate, labor law and tort liability.

We know from experience that language and cultural differences are of hindrance while doing international business in Italy. Therefore, we assist our foreign clients by bridging the gap between their home countries and the complicated Italian reality.

We aim to facilitate foreign companies to position themselves successfully in the highly competitive Italian society, lacking somewhat of transparency and efficiency. That is why we place a lot of emphasis on being proactive and communicative.

ADF’s well experienced team of Italian and foreign lawyers offers bespoke legal assistance in court litigation and in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, from arbitration to ad hoc negotiation. It furthermore assists by contracting and advicing in cross border as well as in domestic transactions pertaining to Italy.

We provide full scale assistance to foreign entrepreneurs doing business in Italy, as we offer a wide package of additional compliance services also through our off counsels from bookkeeping, pay roll administration to accounting and auditing in addition to our core activities.

ADF & Partners is part of the Dutch Business Lawyers Abroad (DBLA), whose associates are active in the major European capitals (Paris, Barcelona, Warsaw, Brussels, Luxembourg, Zurich, Berlin), as well as in Asia, the United States, Canada, Latin America and Russia (
