Dispute Resolution

Italy

Over the years our professionals have developed a significant expertise in handling litigation matters before all Italian Courts, including the Italian Supreme Court, the State Council and the Constitutional Court. The firm regularly advises and represents clients in relation to civil, commercial, labour and administrative matters and proceedings. Our litigation department has a strong expertise in dealing with commercial litigation (including corporate, commercial agreements, bankruptcy, recognition of foreign decisions, intellectual property, debt recovery), also with reference to urgent and preventive measures. In connection with other CMS offices in most European jurisdictions, the firm offers a one-stop-shop service for representation in judicial proceedings and enforcement of judgments before all Courts in Italy and Europe. Our professionals also have an extensive experience in representing clients in arbitration proceedings, both domestic and international, and in acting as arbitrators themselves.
