IA International Advisors aims to support companies that wish to embark on the ambitious, difficult, and challenging path of internationalization. For these enterprises, we offer our 30 years of knowledge and field experience. We operate on five continents thanks to our international team of Partners and have two legal offices in Milan and New York.

We are not just consultants; we are an integrated and operational part of your team.


For a company, expanding its business means having a vision, determination, knowledge of the market and its dynamics. In an international context what makes the difference is the knowledge of the language, regulations, habits, prejudices, but also the understanding of unknown cultures and different operational habits. Full mastery of this knowledge and dynamics is the distinctive element that determines the success or failure of a project. It is not an easy path, but it is simple only if you rely on us.

IA International Advisors does not have a magic formula for internationalizing an established business, simply because such a formula does not exist. However, we know how to act and support clients at every stage of a journey that is the result of 30 years of field experience. Our expertise, consolidated over time, ensures the most appropriate response to any business need and size. Our office in the United States represents a further commitment to companies wishing to expand into North America. 

IA International Advisors proposes a methodical approach that aims to clearly sort out what must be done from what must be avoided, supporting the client from the first feasibility project and then following him in the entire process that will lead to its execution. Courage, competence and experience, three fundamental elements to give a clear direction to the growth of different types of business projects in five different continents.
