We were born in 1988, immediately setting ourselves the goal of being international by simultaneously opening three offices: in Rome, Milan and New York. Since then we have been alongside Italian and foreign companies in their extraordinary operations and in their ordinary activities. Since 1988 we have been a point of reference in the panorama of legal services.
Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners was born in 1988. The intuition of the founding partners is to create a firm with international capabilities, importing from the United States that model of organized law firm which was an absolute novelty for the Italian market.
The international vocation of the law firm is clear from its origins to its founders, who decide to open three offices simultaneously: Rome, Milan and New York. The first two respond to the objective of working closely with Italian customers, the American one is aimed at effectively managing customers with international interests and activities.
The firm quickly became one of the reference points in the field of legal assistance to the company, both nationally and internationally.
The original offices are flanked by further operating bases in the main Italian and European business centers: London, the crossroads of the main banking and financial market transactions; Bologna, Padua and Turin, to assist customers more closely in the central-northern Italian area; Brussels to incorporate the new needs linked to the growing importance of the Community aspects in the operations followed.
Over the years, the global strategy leads the study to forge strong ties with major studies internationally.
In 2007, in order to treat Asian markets more effectively, the law firm opened the Cindia Desk, a special interdepartmental team dedicated to customers with interests in the Chinese and Indian markets.
A new step in the firm's internationalization path was marked in 2010 with the opening of the Abu Dhabi office: Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners is the first Italian law firm to be present in the United Arab Emirates.
In 2014 the studio opens a new office in Asia, in Hong Kong *, the financial capital of the Far East.
With the intensification of the activity abroad, the studio decides to create additional multidisciplinary teams, dedicated to specific geographical areas. The following were born: the China Desk in 2011, the Korea Desk in 2012, the Turkey Desk in 2013, the Russia Desk in 2016, the Africa Desk and the Luxembourg Desk in 2018.
