The firm

Founded in 1976 by partners Vittorio Afferni, Lucio Crispo and Anna Maria Buzzoni, Studio Legale Afferni Crispo & C. is a law firm specialised in commercial law and related sectors. In order to meet its national and international clients’ needs, it offers fully staffed offices located in Milan and Genoa.

Among the top priorities of the lawyers working for the firm are their attention to the specific needs of each and every client, the fact that they are legal- as well as business-minded and their constant effort in providing prompt and trustworthy advice upon which individuals and companies can rely and act.

The expertise of the firm is wide-ranging, as its lawyers provide advice on both judicial and non-judicial matters. With regard to litigation, representation is given continuously to clients before all levels of the Italian and EU court system, as well as in the context of national and international arbitral proceedings. Moreover, some of the lawyers have served several times as arbitrators and have acquired great familiarity with the rules and procedures that are typical of arbitration proceedings.
