About Us

About us

De Capoa law firm was founded in 1986 by Mr. Antonio de Capoa. Since that date, it has mainly dealt with community law and company law, both national and international, in all their multiple expressions.

Over the years, through times and trends, the Firm has formed strategic alliances with highly-qualified specialists (especially from the academic world), from geographic areas which have subsequently become strategic and essential to the world’s economy, such as South America, Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Caucasus, the Mediterranean basin, and the Middle and Far East. In this sense, the first professional experiences with the People’s Republic of China and Russia – which date back to the mid-1980s – and with the “Islamic World” – which started in the second half of 1990s – are remarkable. Relations with EU Institutions started even earlier.

The Firm has a clear, winning, forward-looking strategic vision which, when combined with its expressive pragmatism, has enabled it to become the first in the world to establish long-term alliances with law firms in countries which are today unanimously considered more interesting and rich in opportunities. This was made possible by a profound understanding of the cultures and customs of countries with which the Firm develops its professional relationships and by its approach which is always focused on respect and loyalty.

Moral integrity, a great sense of ethics, respect for essential values, skills, qualifications and training, a constant learning process, a particular attention to the client’s needs, the ability to work as a team, transparency and fairness (in both internal and external relationships), flexibility and punctuality in providing the best solutions, reliability and discretion: these are the values shared by Studio Legale de Capoa e Associati and its Branch Offices.

Both the head office – which is in Bologna – and the branch offices are well-structured organizations which can count on highly-qualified professionals and on a dense network of external partners, are able to take difficult jobs of international significance.

The alliances created by Studio Legale de Capoa e Associati is based on both “best friends” and “exclusive alliances” rules, which result in international teams able to provide the client with a complete and homogeneous service.

The Firm fosters and develops close relationships with leading Universities and Research Institutions all over the world, and so far it has hosted more than six hundred recent graduates and post-graduate trainees from Italy and abroad.

The Firm takes a close interest in the ethical business world, in scientific research and in the promotion of cultural exchanges, and it promotes advanced courses at important Universities, as well as it concludes cooperation agreements with both European and non-European universities.

The Firm closely collaborates with FAREST, a consulting firm created with the participation of SIMEST, which in its turn is controlled by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and established by the Italian Government in order to support Italian investments abroad by providing technical and financial assistance. Furthermore, Mr. de Capoa collaborates with PROMEUROPA, a transnational cultural association for the promotion and development of European Culture.
