Dikaios: Consultants to Religious Congregations

Dikaios is the only international law firm assisting Religious Congregations and Entities by providing services through a network of industry specialists: civil litigators and canon law attorneys; mediators and negotiators; experts in communication and academic lecturers; qualified accountants; tax consultants; architects and engineers. The professionals working with Dikaios know that the relationship between the lay and ecclesiastical worlds must always be managed with care, in order to reconcile a plurality of languages, cultures, and legal systems. Dikaios also produces events where industry professionals share their expertise and educate Religious Congregations, engaging them in lively discussions on a variety of topics, including property management, taxation, labour laws, and privacy. Dikaios is also the sponsor of a special conciliation body dedicated to civil disputes to which a Congregation is a party, the first of its kind in Italy: CAEE Service.

We periodically send articles and communications of interest to Religious Congregations. Furthermore, we invite our members to all the free events we organize.

Religious Congregations are bona-fide citizens of the community, with all the attendant responsibilities, but with rights too. Both must be protected. This is Dikaios’ raison d’être.
