Here is an extract of the Italy Market update contained in the report:
2020 took off well, firms were busy and still benefiting from a positive trend that had started in 2019 which had seen a marked revival in M&A deals.
In fact, this good start to the year enabled firms to remain busy even after the lockdown was in force and only in some areas workload slowed down in April - May.
Most law firms transitioned smoothly into smart working without slowing down their everyday work patterns. This was possible thanks to the fact that most of them already had the technology in place to allow remote working and video calls. Only a few firms did not encourage smart working during the lockdown.
