At a time when it is common to persist in the foolish thesis that “the past is outdated”, this Firm is proud to descend from a long line of lawyers which originated more than a century ago in Eboli and Salerno, active in the fields of both civil and criminal law.

Ever since lawyer Prof. Guido Vestuti moved to Como, the Firm has been an important point of reference for the business concerns of the territory for over fifty years.

The legal activity was later divided into two autonomous branches, one operating in Salerno and one in Como, the latter expanding with Milanese and Swiss representatives, in the awareness of the need for internationalization.

The Firm is now operative thanks to the presence of lawyers Mr. Cosimo Andrea Vestuti, who strongly recommended a broadening of the scope of the activity and competences, and of Mr. Giancarlo Cairoli who, with thirty-five years of proven experience, has consolidated the development structure and purposes. The firm can also count on the active collaboration of five other lawyers.

All members of the Firm are insured with a specific policy covering professional risk.

A professor at the University of Genoa and at Milan’s Catholic University, I am the author of numerous publications, among which “La Rivoluzione Permanente – Uno studio sulla politica di Trotsky”, “Schumpeter teorico dell’Economia”, “Il partito politico – Una introduzione critica”, as well as, more specifically in the realm of law, “Lo sciopero in Svizzera e in Italia”.
I am heir to a long family tradition in the legal profession.
