Slide Our commitment to generate a positive impact

Impact & Sustainability

  1. In accordance with our values, we were among the first Italian law firms to operate within this ecosystem, in both the more traditional areas of the Third sector and social entrepreneurship and the more innovative sectors linked to sustainability, innovation and impact investing and in line with ESG criteria (environment, social, governance).
  1. In the field of social impact finance, we help our clients in transactions and investments aimed at generating value and measurable, positive social impact. We are particularly involved in helping clients set up and manage investment vehicles - handling the legislative, regulatory and authorisation aspects - within the context of investment transactions and in issuing financial debt instruments (e.g. mini-bonds).
  1. Sustainability is a vital aspect to consider when planning the consolidation and growth of companies in global markets. For this reason, we support our clients in the development of sustainability models which, when combined with suitable risk management systems, company policies and organisational models in accordance with Legislative Decree 231/01, make sustainability and social impact linchpins of company activities. This process must entail a careful assessment of the impact generated by individual supply chains on the human rights of all those involved (human rights impact assessment).
  1. Qualifying as a benefit company, B Corp certification and the establishment of corporate vehicles that aim to pursue socially relevant and "common benefit" purposes are fundamental steps in the development of sustainable, inclusive entrepreneurial formulas. We support our clients in this area, which includes the implementation of suitable social reporting systems and the management of regulatory aspects relating to the measurement of social impact, in collaboration with expert consultancy companies.
  1. For over ten years we have worked alongside the Third sector in assisting social enterprises, cooperatives and non-profit organisations at all stages of their life and in the development of philanthropic initiatives, fundraising and cause-related marketing, in the management of relationships with the Public Administration and the development of organisational models in accordance with Legislative Decree 231/2001. We assist clients undergoing reorganisation, transformation, merger and demerger processes and support foreign companies wishing to do business in Italy, by setting up branches or dedicated organisations.
  1. Within this complex ecosystem, we also support the development of projects for the shelter, work placement and entrepreneurship of migrants and refugees.
