Employment Law


Founded in 2000, ADVANT Nctm is an independent law firm with 69 partners and 193 lawyers and tax advisers, and is one of the leading commercial law firms in Italy.

ADVANT Nctm provides its assistance, both nationally and internationally, in legal and tax matters and in all areas of business law. Its practice areas and departments are fully committed, through multidisciplinary team working, to meeting the clients’ needs.

ADVANT Nctm stands out in the market and among the experts of law as an innovator in many respects. The Firm has achieved many firsts in legal and tax consulting and made pioneering choices in the field of technology as well.

ADVANT Nctm has always been a privileged observatory of the labour market and its dynamics, including from a global perspective. 

Given the peculiar nature and relevance of the legal principles and practices in this field, ADVANT Nctm created a specialist team comprising 21 lawyers, 5 of whom are equity partners, capable of providing full-range advice in this complex area.

We have always been assisting big- and medium-sized, listed and unlisted, Italian and international industrial, commercial and financial groups and their top managers, providing constant and pervasive support in all matters associated with the management of Human Resources.

“Italian firm experienced in all manner of employment matters including trade union relations, dismissals and the employment law aspects of M&A transactions and restructurings. Regularly advises on new management structures. Also handles complex employment litigation. Experienced in working in the automotive, financial and technology sectors.

One client describes the team as "supportive, ready to understand our needs and able to properly explain all technicalities.” (Chambers & Partners)

Nctm Studio Legale offers strong coverage across all areas of employment law. It is increasingly sought after to advise on industrial relations, particularly collective redundancies, social support plans and litigation. The firm acts for clients from sectors such as banking, publishing, pharmaceuticals and aviation, among others. The practice is led by Michele Bignami, who has extensive knowledge of the fashion and luxury sector. Bignami advises multinational companies on the employment law aspects of M&A, privatisations, trade union relations, incentives, collective contracts and dismissals. (The Legal 500)

Moreover, the Firm stands out for its modern and transparent corporate governance, inspired by the key concepts of lightness, rapidity, accuracy, visibility, multiplicity and consistency. First in Italy to propose an acronym as its brand, the synthesis of a team of professionals united by shared values, the Firm is also at the forefront of corporate identity, pursuing a path to promote culture and a project to support contemporary art, nctm e l’arte.
