SMITH D’ORIA is born of the merger of SMITH VIOLET, an International Business Law practice, and UHRY & D’ORIA, a Real Estate, Construction and Public Law practice.
With 15 law practitioners, including 6 partners, our team is valued for its diversity and close working relationship both within the firm and with our clients.

30 years of experience of our multilingual and multicultural International Commerce practice, which is supported by a worldwide network of proven correspondents;
Long-term interaction with the Property Management divisions of major groups, with claims managers, asset managers and with all the professions of the real estate and construction sectors;
A specialist team covering Labour and Employment, Social Relations and Social Welfare, headed by a former Human Resources Director;
