Lawyers and Notaries - Florence
 

Consular District of Florence

The Florence Consular District consists of the Provinces of Arezzo, Bologna, Ferrara, Firenze (Florence), Forlí, Grosseto, Livorno (Leghorn), Lucca, Massa Carrara, Modena, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato, Ravenna, Reggio Emilia, Rimini and Siena, as well as the Republic of San Marino.

Only Italian attorneys are permitted to practice before Italian courts or to give advice on Italian law.  However, some American attorneys, who can act as legal consultants on American law, are included on the list.

The regulations of the Italian Bar Association do not permit lawyers to accept cases on a contingency or percentage basis.  It is recommended, therefore, that fees be agreed upon in each instance before retaining an attorney.

A notary in Italy handles many of the functions performed by an attorney in the United States.  Notaries are public officials.  They are required to have a law degree and usually handle such matters as estates and property transactions.

Although collection agencies do exist, collection of outstanding debts is handled by attorneys whenever litigation is involved.  Reliable credit reports may be obtained through Italian banks or commercial reporting agencies such as Dunn & Bradstreet.

Italy is a party to both the Hague Convention on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters and the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters.  American consular officers are prohibited by federal regulations (22 CFR 92.85) from serving legal process on behalf of private litigants or appointing others to do so, except in the case of subpoenas and orders issued by federal courts.

The U.S. Consulate General in Florence, Italy assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the following persons or firms.  Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department of State or the U.S. Consulate.  Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance.  The information in the list on professional credentials, areas of expertise and language ability are provided directly by the lawyers.  You may receive additional information about the individuals by contacting the local bar association (Ordine degli Avvocati).
