10 years together: celebrating important achievements and the birth of ICTLC S.p.A.


To our valued Customers and Colleagues


Celebrations are meaningful only when they are based on substance and not on formalities. For this reason, we are happy to share our satisfaction with you and, above all, our gratitude for having helped us to achieve important milestones.

2021 is a crucial year, full of both history and the future. First and foremost, it is our tenth anniversary. It was in the spring 10 years ago that ICT Legal Consulting Studio Legale Associato Balboni Bolognini & Partners was founded. There were two of us. Paolo Balboni and Luca Bolognini. We bet on our innovative expertise and on the fact that privacy, data protection and ICT law, subjects we had been passionately involved in for some time (but which still represented a “niche” in the legal market), would literally explode in their importance for businesses and organisations in Italy and in Europe. We immediately focused on the internationalisation of our assistance and consultancy. In just a few years, we managed to create a firm with over 70 qualified professionals, with offices in Milan, Rome, Bologna, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Madrid, and Melbourne, and partner firms in another 33 countries across the globe. We are also official partners of the European Center for Certification and Privacy for the GDPR EuroPrivacy certification scheme.

This year, the prestigious global legal directory Legal 500 – in which we have been ranked as a Leading Firm since 2016 – placed ICT Legal Consulting in the Top position – Tier 1 for Italy in the Data Privacy & Data Protection practice area. Four of ICT Legal Consulting’s lawyers were recognized as Recommended Lawyers (Paolo Balboni, Luca Bolognini, Nicola Franchetto, Vito Michele Pavese), one as a Leading Individual (Luca Bolognini) and one as a Next Generation Partner (Vito Michele Pavese). These are not trivial accolades. They are the results of the dedication and preparation of our professionals and the appreciation shown by our clients. Thank you. These results make the work we have done worthwhile and remind us that we should stay true to our mission. Today, more than ever, we reaffirm our commitment to constant improvement.

In 2018, ICT Cyber Consulting S.r.l. (ICTCC), a consulting company specialised in cybersecurity and data protection by technological design, joined ICT Legal Consulting. An essential ally for a law firm dealing with digital law and, more generally, for DPOs and CISOs wishing to perform independent audits. Multinational companies and institutions have chosen ICTCC to assist in aligning their systems with the best organisational and technical security standards in order to be compliant with both the GDPR and other frameworks such as NIS and ISO/IEC 27001.

In April 2021 came another novelty and another big step forward: ICTLC S.p.A. was born. ICTLC S.p.A.’s services cover compliance (Privacy, IP, TMT) and governance, organisation, management and control models. We also accompany clients in the creation and implementation of international IT security frameworks. ICTLC S.p.A. delivers legal and cybersecurity training programmes consisting of both classroom and distance learning on our proprietary legal-tech platform; acts as your DPO or CISO in outsourcing; and carries out second party legal and technological audits using the skills of both the law firm and our cyber team.

Passion for the matters we deal with. Dedication to our clients, and sensitivity to their needs. Investment in human, professional and scientific background of our team. The ICTLC – ICT Legal Consulting – ICT Cyber Consulting ecosystem becomes more solid, complete, specialised, multidisciplinary, and integrated every day. Our goal is to be the strategic partner of companies and institutions for the enhancement of digital assets and the development of their data driven businesses.

We help you to grow responsibly with data and technology.

We grow, together, thanks to you.
