On Friday, 12 May, we participated in a Florence to discuss substantial differences in the relations of the profession of Avvocati and Solicitors with clients, colleagues, the judiciary and third parties
The seminar took place at the Gallerie degli Uffizi and discussed fundamental values and general principles for the legal profession in civil and common law systems.
From a perspective of both Italy and England and Wales, panellists took at the relation of Italian avvocati with their clients, and the role of the solicitor in the common law system.
In addtion, the panel considered the relationship of avvocati with the prosecutor and their duties during court proceedings, and substantial differences and similarities between the two systems, and ended with a discussion on the relations of lawyers with colleagues and third parties including communication and exchange of documents.
