The Firm

We launched Polikar Sgarrella in 2016, sealing a human and professional relationship started more than twenty years ago.

Our values:

Expertise: we deal only with what we are really good at, in the interest of the Client, who has the right to receive the best possible assistance.

Transparency: we are committed to the utmost clarity when we explain the risks and the benefits of an initiative or a conduct, when we outline the possible options and foreseeable chances, when we expose our fees.

Empathy: we are aware that often, especially in the fields of family law and labour law, the legal issues have a huge psychological and emotional impact on the Client facing them. Hence, we do feel the responsibility and the value of our work.

Flexibility: nothing, at Polikar Sgarrella, is standard. Prior to assessing any legal strategy or defence and to estimating our fees, we study carefully the specific situation, so as to be able to offer the most appropriate support, duly tailored on each and every Client.
