Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Litigation can be a traumatic ordeal for a commercial enterprise. Regardless of its size and complexity, a commercial dispute has the potential to disrupt a business, requiring the diversion of valuable time and resources which could be better spent on more profitable endeavours. Oftentimes, litigation may well threaten a company’s survival. We meticulously review every matter in order to provide our clients with a clear understanding of the risks, costs and timescales involved in litigating or defending a claim.

We also oversee third-party investigations and work closely alongside court-appointed experts.

In our view, the foundations of a strong defence lie on mutual trust and close collaboration with our clients.

Our approach has often proved a winning strategy in pinpointing our clients’ objectives and achieving their goals. We strive to be more than just legal advisors, but seek to guide our clients towards the best litigation strategy by identifying the right questions to ask, the right type of proceedings to pursue and the right time to settle. All this stems from our in-depth knowledge of the law and outstanding ability to prioritise individual needs and goals.

In addition to assisting larger companies and groups both in Italy and abroad, we also advise smaller businesses and individuals involved in corporate disputes (directors and auditors), as well as private clients (often for inheritance disputes).

We have extensive experience in banking and insurance litigation and are renowned for our effective, quality and competitively-priced service.


Here’s what sets us apart

  • Litigation is one of our main practice areas, with over 50 litigation experts. Furthermore, our International Arbitration Focus Team is unique in Italy for its size and experience in assisting companies in complex international disputes
  • We have handled many prominent domestic cases involving corporate, bankruptcy and environmental law
