Insurance law is analysed and studied both from the side of the injured party (road traffic liability and work accidents) and from the side of the insurance companies, as JT LEX is also a fiduciary firm for companies.
The practice is taken care of from the outset by means of out-of-court activities aimed at settling disputes amicably and by means of legal protection, in accordance with the specific rules governing the discipline.
Great importance, therefore, was given to in-depth doctrinal and jurisprudential analysis of the issues concerning biological and existential damage, under the multiple components that characterise it.
It also deals with non-life insurance, life insurance, accident policies and liability for various risks (fire, theft, ‘kasko’, professional liability).
Banking law has always been close to the heart of the firm’s professionals in all aspects relating to the Consolidating Act 385 of 1993 as amended.
The firm currently defends companies and individuals in litigation involving sureties, mortgages and current account relationships.
JT LEX assists clients in the best solution of problems related to the restructuring of debt and non-performing loans also through negotiations with debt collection companies.
JT LEX, continuing a long family tradition, deals with civil law issues with passion and professionalism.
In particular, the subjects currently covered are:
Family law, with a focus on proceedings for legal separation between spouses and divorce, as well as child law issues.
Succession law, through advice and assistance in disputes of an inheritance nature and on the validity of wills and legacies.
Property law and property rights, with advice on easements, usufruct, right of abode.
Obligations and contracts in general, either by drafting contractual texts or by defending their rights in court.
JT LEX also follows debt recovery procedures both nationally and internationally.
The firm, through its professionals, also provides all litigation activities in civil law, advocating before all courts in Italy, including the Supreme Court of Cassation.
Commercial law is an integral part of practitioners’ activities in many respects.
The subject matter is dealt with both at corporate level, through strategic and pre-litigation advice, and through the drafting of business-related contracts, such as sales, procurement, agency and distribution, and franchising.
The following disciplines are also covered: Competition Law, Protection of Trademarks and Patents, Copyright Law, Bankruptcy Law, both in pre-bankruptcy proceedings and in the defence of parties in bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings.
Labour law is a particular focus of the firm’s work. The protection of workers and companies is ensured through a systematic study of individual cases in both the pre-litigation and judicial phases.
More specifically, the topics that are most closely examined can be identified as follows:
Individual autonomous and subordinate employment: establishment of the employment relationship and resolution of related issues
Obligations and rights of the employee and the employer: change of duties and issues relating to mobbing, management and disciplinary power of the employer, remuneration and pay differences.
Conduct of the employment relationship: transfers, company transfers, overtime work. Termination of employment: individual and collective dismissals with particular reference to the principles of just cause and justified reason; notice and severance pay.
Special employment relationships: apprenticeship, part-time, job sharing, training and employment contracts, company directors and corporate work, family business, home working, journalistic and entertainment work, smart-working.
Social security matters are also dealt with, including accidents at work and their inherent compensatory consequences.
Real estate and tenancy law
Real estate law is an evolving subject and is one of the specialisations covered by JT LEX.
In particular, the activities of the professionals are concentrated in the following areas:
Regulation of building constructions, also from the civil law point of view of building distances and good neighbourly relations and commonhold law.
It also advises on and drafts lease agreements (residential and commercial use) with related judicial protection (eviction proceedings for arrears and licence for finite tenancy).
The firm has always been involved in extrajudicial assistance in real estate sales transactions, both in the preparation of preliminary contracts and notarial deeds.
International and Community Law
The discipline, which, due to the importance of foreign trade, has taken on a significant dimension in the last period, is treated and edited with in-depth analysis and operational methodology.
The drafting of an appropriate contract to protect the interests of the represented party is the indispensable tool for guaranteeing traders with regard to the law applicable to the international contract and issues concerning jurisdiction, also with regard to the possible inclusion of arbitration clauses.
The subject of study is also international sales, with particular reference to the 1980 Vienna Convention. Particular attention is then devoted to EU law and its concrete applications within the national legal system, in particular with reference to the so-called Rome Regulation II on the 2007 bonds.
The legislative evolution of the criminal justice system, both from a substantive and procedural point of view, requires specific preparation and expertise to deal with the subject matter in a professional manner.
To this end, the firm guarantees for culpable offences and insurance-related offences (personal injury, culpable homicide, criminal law on accidents at work) serious and specific preparation in dealing with individual issues.
In all cases, collaboration and joint defence with experienced professionals is guaranteed in order to prepare the best possible defence in the concrete case under examination.
