Founded in Genoa in 1976 by partners Vittorio Afferni, Lucio Crispo and Anna Maria Buzzoni, Studio Legale Afferni Crispo & C. (SLAC) is a law firm specialized in commercial law and related sectors. In order to meet its national and international clients' needs, the firm currently has two fully staffed offices, in Genoa and Milan, both centrally located.
The expertise of the firm is wide-ranging, as its lawyers provide advice on both judicial and extra-judicial matters.
With regard to litigation, representation is given continuously to clients before all levels of the Italian and EU court system, as well as in the context of national and international arbitration.
