Gianni & Origoni 

March, 2016 - Rome, Italy


Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners continues to grow in the United Arab Emirates


Rome, March 14, 2016 – The international law firm Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners signed a formal, strategic collaboration with Hamdan AlShamsi, an UAE law firm with offices in Dubai.

The agreement aims to support the growing demand for legal services on behalf of European and Gulf States clients, who are interested in cross-border activity which necessitates further integration of the competences regarding these two strategic areas.

The partnership will allow the two law firms to offer clients an integrated platform of advisory services in all legal areas as well as a dedicated team of financial and commercial dispute resolution experts.

For Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners this agreement represents a new milestone in its internationalization process and confirms, once again, the firm’s leadership in terms of global presence. Indeed, the announcement of this partnership with Hamdan AlShamsi follows a series of international growth initiatives which – leaving aside its long established offices in New York, London and Brussels - saw the opening of our offices in Abu Dhabi (we were the first Italian law firm to do so in 2010), Hong Kong (2014) and the creation of desks dedicated to strategic areas such as India and China (2007), Korea (2012), Turkey (2013) and Russia (2014). In April 2015 the firm signed a formal alliance with Chinese law firm Han Kun.

Francesco Gianni, Founding Partner of Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners states: “The market, clients and the institutions place a high value on a consolidated presence in international strategic areas. To be close to clients to support them in their key development projects is fundamental. Offering a profound knowledge of the legal and economic dynamics of the countries in which they intend to build their success stories is what marks us out as the partner of choice to our clients.”

Renato Giallombardo, Partner and MENA Region Coordinator of Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners adds: “The partnership with Hamdan AlShamsi will allow us to create new synergies and new business opportunities for our clients and for Italian companies that operate in the Gulf States. It will also consolidate and strengthen the presence of our firm both territorially and in terms of our practice areas. Due to our expansion in the UAE, the firm has built a solid and authoritative position to itself become an engine of growth for our leading Italian enterprises who are expanding their activity in the Middle East.”

Hamdan AlShamsi, founding partner of Hamdan AlShamsi law firm comments: “We are delighted to be working with Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners. This partnership relies on a deeply shared common approach to clients, centred on attentiveness, care, quality and competence. I am sure that through our structures and our networks in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and other countries in the area, our clients’ activity in the Gulf will be amply supported. The alliance makes Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners the obvious vital pivot for all outbound initiatives from Gulf to European countries.”
