The Firm

iLS is a team of like-minded Italian lawyers with synergetic expertise and a common professional ethos.

Our partners are drawn from top tier international and Italian law firms, have extensive experience in their respective fields and are widely recognised in the market for the quality of their advice.

Our client base includes international investors looking for investment opportunities in the Italian market, as well as Italian corporates interested in accessing international capital markets. In particular, we have established long-lasting client relationships with global investment banks, international investment funds, major Italian banking groups, listed companies, servicers, and rating agencies.

As a top-notch boutique law firm, we cherish intellectual honesty, trust and a spirit of teamwork and we value the human aspect of the client-lawyer relationship. Our work is partner-led and focused on providing tailor-made solutions for the needs of our clients.

iLS provides Italian law advice and specialises in corporate and banking and finance, including:

• Principal finance, both buy-side and sell-side, for performing, non-performing, and sub-performing financial assets (granular portfolios and single-names);

• Structured finance, providing advice to the various types of subjects involved in this type of transaction, mainly originators, arrangers, and investors, as well as rating agencies and servicers (including, in this respect, advice on the legal and regulatory aspects of the activity of the servicers in the context of securitisation transactions);

• Secured lending (including real estate financing and asset financing) on behalf of lenders and borrowers;

• Restructuring, including compositions with creditors;

• Mergers and acquisitions.

In July 2021, we established an arrangement with Weigmann Studio Legale, one of the oldest and best regarded law firms in Italy, to offer a complete range of legal advisory services, including real estate, traditional banking, litigation, employment, energy, and regulatory law.

In order to serve our clients, we maintain a physical presence in each of the financial hubs of Europe and Italy, London and Milan, through iLS (London UK) and iLS (Milan) Società tra Avvocati.

In London, we are based in Shoreditch, near the City of London. From our London office, we are within reach of our international clients and we provide operational and business development support to the group.

iLS (London UK) is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
