The beginnings in the 60s
The history of the practice is a long one. In 1964 Andrea Scuderi, who had just graduated, started to work at his fathers’ practice, where Nino Scuderi was an established civil lawyer. The following year they were joined by Sergio Motta, whose father Giovanni was one of the most prominent criminal lawyers in Catania. After the premature death of Nino Scuderi in 1967, Andrea Scuderi and Sergio Motta laid the foundation for a professional partenship destined to last in time.
Progress up to 2000
Since the mid 1970s Andrea Scuderi worked alongside Sergio Motta, focusiing on civil law, and alongside Rosario Pizzino. In the 1980s he starts to specialise in admnistrative law. In January 1984 Studio Legale Scuderi – Motta – Pizzino is born, and the practice is joined by many professionals. In those years, under the guidance of Andrea Scuderi and Sergio Motta, the practice became a key hub for the best legal talents in Catania.
In 2004 Rosario Pizzino leaves the partnership, which subsequently became Studio Legale Scuderi – Motta.
Since then the practice has been joined by around twenty lawyers, who focus on a vaste range of subject areas.
Today – into the future
The practice has further expanded to include 25 members between founders, partners and practicing professionals. A new management structure was implemented to focus on cooperation and skillsharing in order to enhance the quality of legal services. Our practice is informed by the importance of responding appropriately and promptly to the need for legal aid in the area and sectors the practice operates in. We aim to embody an enlightened understanding of the practice of law that sees the lawyer as a medium of justice within society, as inspired by the Italian constitution.
The practice focuses on areas such as: People and Civil Rights (healthcare and workplace rights), Local Government (public organizations), Environmental Law (water resources, waste disposal, air quality, asbestos, public contracts), Economic Development (corporate agreements, public and private contracts development programs), Safeguarding (in the civil, administrative and constitutional fields), European law (rights, treaties and conventions), Training and PR.
