Just 3 Courts for Litigation with Foreign Companies in Italy

The Italian Government has just issued a new law  (Decreto Legge “del fare” article 75) which states that only three Italian Courts shall be competent forum to start a litigation between a foreign company and Italians.

The Courts are Milan for  North Italy, Rome for Center Italy and Neaples for South Italy.

Such new organization will create a great confusion, also on the basis that the three Courts are already suffering of great delays  in managing ordinary cases.

The new idea has been developed without any previous dialogue between the Government and the lawyers.

It is forecasted that it will be not approved without a struggle of the Italian lawyers against another Governmental  strange way to administer the Italian Judicial System.

We will keep you informed on the following developments.
