The founder and patriarch of the firm is Girolamo Grillo, born in Palermo on March 18, 1861. After graduating in law with full honors from the University of Palermo, from November 1884 he practiced in Agrigento until 1887, when he moved to Rome for military volunteering.

In Rome, in October 1888, he began to collaborate in the law firm of Avv. Pascale, where he was highly valued by Prince Odescalchi, who appointed him legal attorney of his administration, with accommodation in the Castle of Bracciano.

In a short time the reputation of Avv. Girolamo Grillo grew up among the Roman nobility and Prince Altieri also appointed him for legal assistance to protect his interests for several of his properties.

The family law firm then began to grow and Girolamo was joined by his sons Mario and Tullio. He was also joined by his eldest son Goffredo, who then died in war on October 24, 1917 near Tolmino, being awarded the Laurea Onoris Causa.

In addition to the family firm, Mario became a Senior Lawyer in the legal department of the General Management of the Bank of Italy in Rome. With the outbreak of the Second World War he volunteered to leave for the Russian front from which unfortunately he did not return (receiving in 1942 the Gold Medal Honoris Causa from the Council of the Bar Association of Rome).

After receiving the Gold Medal for 50 years of profession as dean of the Order, Girolamo died in Rome on March 18, 1954, the day of his 93rd birthday.

After the death of Girolamo, the law firm was directed by his son Tullio, who continued to work under the Odescalchi reacheing the position of Honorary Vice Magistrate.

Tullio was also awarded the Gold Medal for 50 years of profession by the Council of the Order of Rome.

Together with Tullio, since 1936, his brother Giuseppe has followed in the footsteps of the family, who in 1967 moved the Studio to its current headquarters in Viale Giuseppe Mazzini n. 55.

Giuseppe Grillo carried the law firm into a new phase destined to reach, through the work of his sons Lucio and Camillo, the present day.

After the death of his father Giuseppe in 1996 and his brother Lucio in 2003, Camillo Grillo – current senior partner of the Firm – carried on the family history that is enriched at the beginning of the new millennium with the addition of his children Michela, Corrado and Francesco.

Together they have been able to create a close-knit group of professionals who, in sharing the spirit of legal activity as a combination of tradition and modernity, passionately work toward the same mission: to seek solutions, carry out projects and protect rights. In a word, to be lawyers.
