The Briguglio Siracusano Vaccarella (BSV) Law Firm focuses on civil, commercial, labour, administrative and bankruptcy law with a unique expertise in the field of litigation.
The experience achieved in the various sectors of litigation has also enabled the Firm to deal the main activities of consulting on out-of-court issues, fully aware of the pathological dynamics of contractual relations. The Firm's clients include major national companies from the public sector, large industrial groups, both Italian and foreign, medium-sized and small businesses.
The long-standing professional experience and scientific expertise of some of the Firm's professionals are frequently used in assisting its clients in national and international arbitration proceedings (ad hoc or initiated at the leading international institutions), as well as in post-arbitration disputes (challenging judgements, recognition of foreign judgements).
BSV offers legal advice on public and private contracts, both with reference to the stage of selection of the contractor in the public sector, and with reference to the stage of performance of the contract.
BSV has earned a distinct experience in providing legal assistance to important economic operators in significant tax disputes before the Court of Appeal. Many specialists in tax law require the cooperation of the Firm in view of the peculiarities and increased technicality of the judgement of lawfulness.
For years a consultant of the main Italian collection, the Firm has benefited from a privileged field of observation for the development of in-depth expertise in copyright related to musical and cinematographic works.
In addition to providing out-of-court advice on corporate matters (with particular regard to the incorporation of companies and the transfer of shareholdings), BSV has frequently been involved in a wide variety of corporate disputes. Among other things, the Firm has been involved, on both the active and passive sides, in major and well-known liability cases brought by the management bodies. In bankruptcy matters, the Firm's most important practice areas are the revocation of bankruptcy, assistance to creditors in the event of bankruptcy and judicial composition, and the protection of third parties in bankruptcy matters.
The judgements and agreements of separation and divorce are entrusted to the Firm's specific team of lawyers. The Firm is also often involved in important and well-known disputes on inheritance matters.
BSV is particularly involved in the pre-litigation and litigation procedures for both collective and individual dismissals.
The Firm has acquired specific expertise in relation to the transfer of real estate assets of large companies.
The Firm assists, at various levels and in different types of litigation, the players in the energy and telecommunications markets.
A growing and often conflicting regulatory and case-law development in the field of legal and civil procedure makes it increasingly necessary to specialise, even of a scientific nature, in the management of disputes of considerable importance and value. The Firm also intervenes on numerous occasions, for the provision of advice and guidance or for joint legal assistance, by other lawyers when procedural issues (particularly in the litigation or appeal phase) are predominant or particularly complex.
The Firm's experience has been acquired through the assistance of large companies in various market sectors, particularly in product, banking, financial, antitrust and medical liability. Particular expertise has been acquired in the strategic management of mass litigation and collective actions for damages.
