Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo

Market-leading boutique



Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo is an acclaimed Italian boutique that is regularly appointed by leading foreign law firms as a trusted adviser on important Italian labour law issues.

The firms capabilities extend well beyond Italy owing to its membership of the Ius Laboris employment law alliance.

In July 2022, the firm opened in Venice, hiring partner Andrea Bortoluzzi and his team from MDA. This followed the firms expansion into Turin in May 2022, through the lateral hire of Ezio Moro and his team.

In addition to Turin and Venice, the firm has offices in Milan, Rome, Bari, Bergamo, Bologna, Brescia, Genoa, Naples, and Varese.

Managing partner Franco Toffoletto is a key contact. Emanuela Nespoli in 2022 was featured in IELs Women Leaders survey, and is another name of note.


The firms focus on all things employment and labour means it is well equipped to handle the full spectrum of related issues, from offering cost-effective solutions for contract template drafting, through to business closures.

As part of its advisory services, the team regularly supports clients with internal policies, non-compete arrangements, privacy concerns, and remuneration – including benefits. 

Members of the team are also active in collective matters. This spans the negotiation of collective agreements (including at company level), and assistance with agreements for the establishment of European trade union representatives.

A key area of expertise is in corporate transactions. The team is well placed to act on restructuring, transfers of undertaking, outsourcing, and collective dismissals.

The firm also assists with contentious matters, ranging from disciplinary procedures through to representation in disputes at all levels – from employment courts through to the supreme court.

In addition, the firm offers a dedicated tax consulting practice, which aids clients with employee compensation and benefits, mobility issues, and expatriate staff.
