The firm is specialized in estate matters including estate planning, estate administration and estate litigation, particularly but not exclusively dealing with estates that have assets in multiple jurisdictions, especially involving Canada and Italy.
Sara Riboldi is a dually qualified Canadian and Italian lawyer, a member of the bar in both countries. The team consists of Italian and Canadian lawyers and legal professionals. We often act for clients domiciled in one country with legal issues in the other.
Beyond Canada-US matters, international legal expertise is not common in Canada and you need to have a specialist on your side. We handle matters that touch on both Canada and Italy, including contracts and commercial disputes between parties in the two jurisdictions and assistance for the creation of corporate branches in Canada or in Italy.
Sara Riboldi is often called upon by other firms and government bodies to provide advice on matters presenting a connection with Italy and Canada when legal issues pertaining to jurisdiction and applicable law and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments are raised, with a focus on the fields of estate, family and commercial law.
