The law firm ‘Studio Legale Canestrini’ was founded by Mr. Alessandro Canestrini in Rovereto (Italy, 1839 - 1894) more than 150 years ago.
canestriniLex is an Italian law firm, founded in the 19th century by Mr. Alessandro Canestrini.
The attorneys now working in the canestriniLex law firm form a unified legal team: each attorney concentrates his efforts on a single branch of law (tort, liability, contract, real estate, immigration, criminal law etc.) and operates under the responsability of Mr. Nicola Canestrini.
The size of our firm and its age structure enables us to offer highly specialized and individualized services for our clients, be they individuals or enterprises. For this reason we intend to continue with natural growth as opposed to following the present trend of mergers.
Our attorneys are qualified to cover a wide range of legal issues, both in criminal and civil law.
Criminal law: murder, assault, robbery, drug trafficking (sales, conspiracy, manufacturing), weapons charges, white collar crimes (fiscal and environmental offenses, money laundering, bribery and corruption, foreign trade offenses, product liability, criminal tributary and business law), immigration related crimes, smuggling, fraud (computer fraud, insurance and credit card fraud), domestic violence charges (including spousal abuse, child abuse, malicious punishment of a child, stalking, harassment and rape), other violent crimes (battery, manslaughter, manslaughter by reckless driving, drunk driving and other traffic violations), extradition law and international criminal law.
Civil law: insolvency, security of performance of obligations, contracts and legal transactions, real estate, intellectual property, damages and liability, EU law/international law, succession, litigation/ADR, implementation and defence of civil rights (immigration), bankruptcy law, construction law.
As there are no restrictions on practicing as defence counsels with regard to regions or courts, we can act on behalf of our clients anywhere in Italy and in all courts, fighting for fundamental rights and equality before the law.
