Your partner
in law

Lexellent was set up and continues to operate thanks to the experience of reputed employment lawyers who, over the years, have shared much professional success.

The founding partners of the firm, Benvenuto, Scherini and Bergamaschi, have been joined in time by Bacchini and Chiesara. Their proven competence is passed on to all those who work with us, with the aim of always achieving excellence.

Lexellent boasts a consolidated background in the areas of employment law, industrial relations, trade union relations and their relative contentious matters, guaranteeing a thorough, in-depth understanding of the legislative, regulatory and contractual system which governs all aspects of the employment relationship.

Lexellent promotes and develops the study of law through constant research, as well as training and up-dating for our professionals, not only for the purposes of best addressing our clients’ needs but also to foresee their requests, thus ensuring excellence in service provision.

Our values

We like to be inclusive

We call it the “inclusion of diversity”, no matter what you call it – you can help to put it into action

Lexellent

Inclusion and Diversity of roles, of training, of background, of mentality, of character, of nationality. We are convinced that ‘variety’ can positively be reflected in every aspect of society such as in the activities of our firm.

The more a company demonstrates an open mentality, the better the results of the work carried out by its team. In fact, when people from different social and cultural backgrounds collaborate together for a common goal, the different points of view multiply creating more fertile conditions.

Prerogatives that allow us to find more innovative and effective solutions for our customers, also in terms of competitive advantage.

Starting from the selection process and throughout the path of the working career: every collaborator has the possibility to grow and establish themselves within the firm, expressing the best of their potential within the labor law sector which is best suited to them – with the objective to amplify their true capacity, independent of any other factors.

And it naturally engages in this way in favour, and alongside, of their clients in order to ensure that they too are up to date on this topic.

To implement these arguments and achieve “the organizational amalgamation” that we aim for, the partners of Lexellent, in the first person, guarantee the protection of the value of diversity and inclusion – striving constantly to effectively apply it, favouring a balance between private life and working life for all of our team members.

Diversity is promoted also through its engagement with the association Parks Liberi e Uguali and the Sodalitas Foundation.
