Studio Conte & Giacomini: History


Conte & Giacomini Avvocati was established in 1992 from the merger of the firm of Giuseppe Conte, founded in 1971, and that of Giuseppe Giacomini, founded in 1981. Our law firm has based its success on the combination of civil and criminal law, over the years successfully extending our areas of particular skill through the contribution made by new professional members of the firm. Conte & Giacomini chose to specialise in European Community/competition law right from the start, gaining standing as one of the first Italian law firms to protect the interests of its clients at the Court of Justice and Court of First Instance. Later, it also entered the fields of maritime/transport law, tax law, aviation law and the defence industry.

Today, the Conte & Giacomini law firm’s strongest point is the synergy enjoyed between lawyers with expertise in different fields. The firm is thus able to offer clients all-round yet highly-specialised assistance. Thanks to its professionalism and skilled approach has meant that we can boast clients that include major insurance firms and banks, brokerage and trading firms, shipping companies, shipbuilders, chemical companies, certification and aeronautical firms, both in Italy and abroad. The firm also provides advisory services for some of the most important Italian consumer and business associations. Since its establishment, the firm’s lawyers have provided legal assistance at the jurisdictional and administrative institutions of the European Union and the United States of America, before the Court of Human Rights and the Antitrust Authority.

Since 2011, our firm entered in “Best Friendship” agreements with the international law firm Pavia & Ansaldo through which it provides clients with antitrust, competition and European Community financing assistance before the Court of Justice and the EU Commision in Brussels.

Since 2006 Attilio M. Costabel joined Conte & Giacomini as partner, having been working professionally in the United States of America since 1988. He coordinates and manages our Miami office, thereby also guaranteeing the excellent standards of Conte & Giacomini in the U.S.A.

Our law firm enjoys a privileged relationship with the Chinese community in Italy, also thanks to our consultant on Chinese matters, Renai Chan, who assists the professionals of Conte & Giacomini Avvocati in relations with the Chinese authorities in Italy and, above all, in China. As part of its professional business, Conte & Giacomini Avvocati has defended members of the Chinese communities in numerous proceedings, particularly on the counterfeiting of trademarks. This is a field in which the firm’s lawyers have accrued a great deal of experience and which, also thanks to the great, specialised knowledge of European Community law, have helped amending the jurisprudential approaches to the matter. The law firm has also sponsored and defended Italian clients before the Chinese legal authorities.

Conte & Giacomini is also member of ASLA, a prestigious association which includes the most important Italian and foreign Law Firms that operates in Italy.

Firm members are able to offer their professional services in Italian, English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek.
