Avv. Elisa Noto
Partner – Labor And Employment Attorney – Aliant Legal Grounds

A lifelong employment lawyer, Elisa provides assistance to national and multinational companies, including in company reorganization transactions with an impact on the personnel or company-employee/Unions conflictual situations. In the very first years of her profession, she dedicated herself to representing workers in Court and this experience is still very useful when she provides assistance to companies in the management of human resources.

She has been the trusted lawyer of an important multinational company in the large-scale retail sector for legal assistance in all disputes brought by employees of the various local units in Rome, thus acquiring significant knowledge of the organization and business of that sector and, in general, of the tertiary and services sector.

Her advice is particularly appreciated by executives of companies with offices in Italy who need to understand the complex system of domestic employment law, as well as to organize and manage personnel in accordance with Italian and European regulations. Elisa is enthusiastic about accompanying employers in the implementation of projects of “Corporate Social Responsibility”. Similarly, in her profession, she believes in what she calls “Lawyers’ Social Responsibility”: an approach that manages to combine the economic, environmental, and social expectations of all parties involved, without ever losing sight of the main objective of generating value for her clients.
