The firm

Established in 1962 in Locarno by Dr. Sergio Salvioni, on August 2017 the Law firm „Studio Legale e Notarile Salvioni e Salvioni“ was taken over by the attorney-at-law Niccolò Salvioni with the new name of „Studio Legale e Notarile Niccolò Salvioni“.
The Law firm offers wide-ranging legal services, suitable for the needs of its private and commercial clients in Switzerland and abroad.


The law firm is in Locarno, Canton of Ticino, Switzerland, on the southern side of the Alps and has borders with Italy. In the Canton of Ticino, the official language is Italian, as in Switzerland, along with German, French and Romansh.

The natural beauties of the Canton of Ticino and of the Locarno region have defined, since the last century, their aim as tourist location and adoptive fatherland for foreign artists, literates and entrepreneurs from different parts of the world since the beginning of the last century .


Locarno is located on the shores of the Lake Maggiore (Lago Maggiore), 23 km from Bellinzona, the political capital of the Canton of Ticino, and 42 km from Lugano, an important Swiss economic and financial capital, and 100 km from Milan.

Locarno is easily accessible by road or rail and is located 100 km from the international airport of Milan Malpensa and 210 km from the one of Zurich-Kloten. It is therefore halfway between the European cultures and languages of the North and of the Mediterranean, so we often act as a “bridge” between them.


The multicultural and multilingual particularity of the Canton of Ticino, and of Switzerland, as well as the private and corporate needs – local, confederate and foreign in the Locarno region -, have directed, through time, the law firm to practice the following activity fields:

  • Criminal law; White Collar Crime in criminal proceeding before the Federal or Cantonal Authorities; International Criminal Law; International mutual assistance in criminal matters; Fraud asset tracing and recovery; fight against Money Laundering.
