COCUZZA opens 2024 with a new brand identity and a new managing partner.

In 2023 COCUZZA celebrated its 30-year anniversary. On the occasion of such an important jubilee the Firm has taken forward a branding project that included simplification of the Firm’s name, launch of a new logo, payoff, and website.  The goal of the branding is to complete a transition of a very well-known law firm in the field of real estate and corporate legal services into a truly general practice law firm, active in a wide array of legal areas.

With the new image, COCUZZA re-affirms the values that have distinguished it over the past 30 years and looks into the future with confidence rooted in its history.

Founded in 1993 by Claudio Cocuzza, the law firm has offices in Milan and Bologna. The team that now counts 37 between lawyers and staff, is composed of experienced, multilingual professionals who have contributed over the years to the creation of a full-service law firm, with a strong specialization in retail real estate.

The branding project has envisaged the appearance of an original and deeply rooted corporate identity with innovative ideas, and has united the firm under what has, in fact, already become a brand over so many years of being active in the legal market.

“Value and values in legal advice” is the motto we have chosen to sum up what is paramount for COCUZZA: providing added value to its clients, always, while respecting certain core values”, says Alessandro Barzaghi, outgoing managing partner. “We aim at consolidating our position in the market of medium-sized law firms and pursue the goal of expanding the number of professionals and practice areas covered, with a decisive focus on new generations.”

As of January 1, 2024, Eva Knickenberg-Giardina succeeded Alessandro Barzaghi in the role of managing partner. Ms Knickenberg-Giardina is also the partner in charge of the German Desk at COCUZZA, composed of a team of bilingual lawyers. A native German speaker, Eva Knickenberg-Giardina has a consolidated international experience in the field of investments that involve Italy and Germany, and a thorough understanding of the regulatory differences, market peculiarities and diversity in business approach, existing in the two countries. She is admitted to practice both in Italy and Germany.

2024 marks an important moment of renewal for COCUZZA, after celebration of its 30-year anniversary in business”, concludes Eva Knickenberg-Giardina. “The new image represents a perfect synthesis of who we are and our values as an independent Italian law firm with a strong international reach, ready to deal with the legal issues of the future and always standing by the side of the Firm’s clients”.
