NCTM, one of the leading independent law firms in Italy, was created in 2000 from the merger of Negri-Clementi and Montironi & Soci and Toffoletto & Associati, and has offices in Milan, Rome and Verona. The firm has more than 250 professionals, including 49 equity partners and has the resource and expertise to handle large and complex matters both in Italy and internationally.
The process of its internationalisation began in 2007, with the opening of an office in Brussels, and continued in 2008 with the launch of a London office, soon followed by the opening of a sixth office in China in 2009.
In 2011, NCTM chose to specialise in shipping law, through an important lateral hire. The firm focuses on developing maritime and transportation law, port law, as well as customs law and transport insurance. The firm says the cornerstones of its practice are excellent technical competence, the high quality of services offered, the efficiency of internal processes and its relationship with clients. NCTM offers its services in almost 20 areas, with a specific focus in M&A, private equity and corporate, providing clients a comprehensive service delivered through multidisciplinary teams.
