Commercial litigation & arbitration

Our commercial litigation team has for over 20 years acted for a large range of Italian businesses, banks and individuals. We have a particularly strong reputation in disputes relating to companies, banks and in assisting holding companies in respect of the difficulties their subsidiaries in the UK, US and Italy might face. We have also developed significant experience in resolving a wide variety of issues including art and cultural assets disputes, property disputes, professional negligence claims, equity and fraud claims, and international trusts disputes.

We strive wherever possible to avoid the trauma and cost of court proceedings, and in most cases we are able to help our clients find solutions through negotiation and, where possible mediation. We are well aware that litigation can be highly disruptive to the smooth running of a business, and make every effort to resolve disputes quickly and efficiently.
