Commercial and Contract Law

On the one side increasing globalisation is levelling down trade barriers, whereas, on the other side, this process is challenged by newly emerging protectionism. Cross-border data exchange profoundly impacts local, European and worldwide markets.

Whilst the legal framework becomes more homogeneous in certain areas, the entry of new economic operators brings about more complex situations in other areas. Hence, producers, purchasing departments, sales companies and importers must address complex contractual arrangements at national and international level.

Together with our clients, we plan extraordinary transactions, such as company and permanent establishment incorporations, spin-offs, disposals, transformations and restructurings of Italian and multinational companies, turnarounds, joint ventures and governance systems.

Thanks to our expertise in the field of sector-specific commercial and corporate law, we draw contracts and support our clients during negotiations, helping them achieve their growth goals.

Hager & Partners Experience

Long-standing experience

We have a long-standing experience with various companies ranging from start-up and medium sized companies to multinational groups in all national and international commercial, distribution and competition law issues. This includes the distribution channel optimization, negotiations with distributing partners, legal advice on the transport of goods and the provision of services or the creation of other systems.

We advise our clients on strategical planning as well as on operational issues in day-to-day business and we support them during the definition and enforcement of competition law claims.

Our advisors have long-standing experience. Most of them have gained significant experience in the international market, practising in all fields of corporate and finance law.


Our method

We offer our clients a full range of advisory services and assist them with all commercial and distribution law issues relating to wholesale and retail sales, consumer goods, e-commerce, real estate, energy, communication, advertising and financial services.

Thanks to their teamwork, our experts are able to exchange experience and know-how, to work in an interdisciplinary manner and to focus within their respective specialisation areas on those aspects only, which are relevant for our clients’ businesses. We adopt an entrepreneurial approach in order to find economically viable and tailored solutions, jointly with our clients.

Mergers, acquisitions and similar transactions allow modern companies to grow. We offer our clients highly-specialised advisory on national and international corporate reorganisations such as mergers, acquisitions, LBOs, MBOs or similar transactions, and we support them in each restructuring stage, from the original idea to its practical implementation.

Our M&A team comprises experienced lawyers and tax advisers and provides our clients from different industries with competent and professional support.

Our goal is to provide our clients with comprehensive support and advisory services.
We are experts in tax and corporate law, extraordinary transactions, corporate finance, transfer pricing, accounting and payroll processing.


In developing solutions, we always take into account the complexity of the issues to be addressed and the legal framework in which we operate.
