Cristina Vannuzzi Landini interviews Italian-American lawyer Frank Ferrante, founder of Studio Legale Ferrante in New York. Born in Calabria, he studied in Italy and then in the United States. In his profession, he combines the speed and dynamism of the American business style with typical Italian attention and flair. A. No. The crisis is the betting opportunity that could happen. Here`s an example: a large portion of the Fortune 500 companies (Forbes` list of the top 500 companies) were born out of the crisis of 1929. History is recurrent and teaches us that those that seem to be obstacles when confronted with the right spirit are opportunities; They help us think outside the box. Frank Ferrante, a business lawyer in Manhattan, explains how most of the 500 major American companies emerged from the crisis of 1929. “I am convinced that small is always better, but it is time to reinvent ourselves. The Italian economic fabric has always consisted mainly of small and medium-sized enterprises; Most of them were indeed family. The United States is one of the biggest “friendly” countries for businessmen, according to World Bank statistics.
As long as the “business plan” is sound, states can offer endless benefits from a tax, corporate, immigration and transparency perspective. I have experienced this first-hand and I am trying to help the Italian Excellencies live what is called the “American dream”. In a moment of crisis, the worst thing is to remain silent and wait for it to disappear. Looking abroad is no longer an option, but a survival strategy. Of this “survival”, many have succeeded! Lo Studio Legale Ferrante di New York City, amplia il suo raggio d`azione con l`ingresso di un nuovo professionista, l`Avvocato Lorenzo V. DeLillo. This new addition strengthens the firm`s real estate sector with the aim of offering Italian and American clients a new reference point for an even more qualified advisory service in the execution of real estate transactions abroad and, therefore, on the corporate side, in solving problems related to the creation and development of a company in the United States. Lorenzo V. DeLillo, 37, studied law at Hofstra University School of Law (New York) and has been admitted to the New York Bar since 2000, specializing in real estate law and has extensive experience in real estate law as well as ordinary and extraordinary corporate law. Prior to joining Studio Legale Ferrante, he first worked at Studio Manoussos & Associates PC and then, from 2005, as General Counsel at The Sapir Organization, where he managed a portfolio of over 557,000 square feet of office/commercial/residential buildings, dealing with all employment law matters. Construction, litigation and intellectual property in licensing the use of various company-owned buildings for films such as “Bourne Supremacy” and television series such as “Ugly Betty” and “Mad Men”.
Also in this context, he pursued important real estate transactions in New York such as the purchase of the Duke-Semans Mansion, which was later sold to the richest man in the world, and also handled all legal issues related to significant historic buildings in Manhattan (e.g., 11 Madison Ave., 384 Fifth Ave., 260/261 Madison Ave.). “I am very happy with this newcomer. Thanks to the entry of Avv. De Lillo has taken another step forward in the real estate sector, developing his professional experience and specific expertise, where he can count on significant synergies both in terms of network and strategy, since we can now count on the deep understanding from the point of view of the property owner. The company counts among its `best customers` in the sector many `Made in Italy` companies such as Technogym, Alessi, Monini, Cesare Paciotti, Moroso, Italcementi and many people,” Avv explained. Frank Ferrante, founding partner of Studio Legale Ferrante. One. Small and medium-sized businesses can protect themselves by observing these markets. The fact that they are based in Italy does not necessarily mean that it has to be the only market in which they operate these new markets that you mentioned, India, China, Brazil and the Middle East should not be seen as a threat but as an opportunity. Globalization will continue to increase. Secondly, I believe that the Italian Government, like the US Government, should create incentives for deserving small and medium-sized enterprises. The main problem is taxes.
In Italy, companies are taxed even more heavily on their incomes and employees. If we want to help the national economy, this trend must be contained. R. Italy is true to its origins and food is certainly one of them. If I`m not mistaken, Italy is the 7th nation in the world for visitors per year.
