About Us

The firm of Batini & Associates was established in 1960 by the founding partner Giuseppe Batini, who is still acting as of counsel. Some Partners left in 2009 to set up Batini Traverso & Associates.

Nowadays, the resulting firm of BTG Legal is an independent Italian law firm providing a full range of services to assist and advise Italian and multinational insurers and corporations, in different classes of business such as insurance and reinsurance, shipping, transportation and dispute resolution.

The firm now has over 30 experienced professionals spread over the main offices of Milan, Rome, Genoa, Leghorn, Ravenna, Naples and London, plus an extended network of local correspondents in the main Italian ports, and in the more important international business centres, with a special focus on the United States and the eastern countries of Russia and the Ukraine.

With its in-house skills and extended network of correspondents, the firm provides worldwide specialised legal services, including general liability, professional liability, medical malpractice, D&O, marine and related insurance, arbitration and litigation, sale and purchase of ships, real estate and commodities, shipbuilding, sales, purchase and building of pleasure yachts, taxation, international finance, property, environmental liability and alternative energies such as PV and solar, wind and geothermal.

On regulatory matters the firm provides assistance to domestic and overseas operators throughout the whole business chain (the authorization process, corporate governance, product development, distribution and special transactions).

In dispute resolution, the firm assists clients in handling complex and sizeable disputes in the pre-contentious phase and throughout all the various procedures, including mediation, ADR, arbitration and litigation (including before the Supreme Court).

The firm also gives advice and assistance on the establishment and management of limited liability companies, both in Italy and in many other European and non-European countries, as vehicles for local and international investments.

The firm participates in the international business market with a complete and flexible structure which has been developed over the years, always true to the vocation of a boutique firm which can provide a tailor-made and customised service to clients.

The international and educational experience of our partners and associates ensures creativity, rapid response and a clear understanding of our clients’ business objectives.

The touchstones of our professional service are thorough dedication to the highest standards of quality, a global responsiveness to the client’s needs, a cost-effective service and a pragmatic attitude in facing complex and cross-border matters.

A considerable amount of work is international in nature. We can assist clients within Italy and in other countries. We service our clients through our network of best friends in key jurisdictions – in particular, North America, North Africa, the European Union, Russia and Asia.
