The activity that the Lana Lagostena-Bassi Rosi Law Firm carries out in the field of the protection of refugees, asylum seekers and third country nationals who have immigrated to Italy is particularly relevant. The Firm follows with scrupulous care every event linked to the concrete cases, accompanying the protected person through all the tortuous stages provided for by the national legislation on migration and asylum, from assistance in obtaining residence documents to the recognition of the international protection status.
The Firm is characterized by an prestigious tradition in the field of asylum, and it assists its clients along the complex path of recognition of the refugee status, from the administrative phase before the competent Territorial Commission, up to the possible subsequent phase of appeal before the specialized sections and the Corte di cassazione in the event of denial.
The Firm also deals with issues relating to the stay of third country nationals in Italian territory, as well as any expulsion measures. In particular, the Firm’s professionals act on behalf of their clients in order to challenge the legitimacy of measures of expulsion of foreigners from the territory such as extradition, expulsion or rejection.
The activity of the Firm relating to the defense of foreigners against any form of racial discrimination, pursuant to EU legislation as implemented in our legal system is just as important.
Over the years, the Firm has also distinguished itself for having brought issues relating to migration and asylum before international judges (the European Court of Human Rights and other international bodies for the protection of human rights, such as the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations) which became leading case law in the field. In this respect, the Firm can boast a specific expertise in relation to the presentation of petitions for the issuance of provisional measures before the European Court of Strasbourg.
The matter in question is part of the Firm’s tradition, thanks to the work of its founders, Mario Lana and Tina Lagostena-Bassi, which is now carried on by professor Anton Giulio Lana and Mario Melillo, who are specifically qualified in the field and acquired decades of expertise. They also curated numerous articles and interviews on human rights and immigration, both from a civil and international point of view. The Firm also provides legal counselling to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
The activity carried out by professor Anton Giulio Lana, in the capacity of President of the Unione forense per la tutela dei diritti umani, is of great importance as well (for further info www.unionedirittiumani.it).
