Chiomenti distinction has always been its international outlook and its Italian legal expertise. Avvocato Pasquale Chiomenti founded the Chiomenti law firm in 1948, when the legal profession in Italy was practiced in an almost exclusively domestic context. Under his inspiration, the firm was one of the first Italian law firms with international capabilities.
The firm’s success is based on the combination of its international outlook, recognized quality and reputation of its professionals. Chiomenti has accompanied the growth of the major Italian businesses and the continuing increase in incoming and outgoing foreign investments from the post-Second World War economic recovery to the recent market integration reforms.
The firm today has approximately 300 lawyers and tax advisers with offices in Rome, Milan, London, Brussels, New York, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Chiomenti provides integrated legal advice with the goals of assisting clients to acquire full knowledge of the legal variables affecting their business decisions and turning efficient legal structures into a competitive advantage. In addition to advising on extraordinary transactions in the corporate, banking, finance and capital markets practice areas, the firm provides expert legal services in the tax, administrative, employment, EU, antitrust, public utilities, copyright, financial markets regulation, trusts, and intellectual property practice areas. The firm has consolidated expertise in civil, administrative and EU law, litigation, and in national and international arbitration.
The firm’s quality legal assistance has been rewarded by recognition in the press and in legal sector organizations. The firm has been repeatedly recognized as “Law Firm of the Year” for Italy by the primary international and Italian journals and specialized guides. In addition, the firm and its professionals are consistently ranked among the foremost leaders by Chambers Global, The European Legal 500, and IFLR 1000.

The firm also assists Italian national and local public administration bodies, foreign states and public entities, organized markets and centralized securities management companies and international organizations.
