Excellent firm instructed by key clients from many industries

Chambers Global, 2018

In over twenty-five years, our product liability team has successfully represented many multinational clients in high-profile product liability cases before the Italian courts. Some of the cases won by our firm in the automotive sector have become well-known precedents shaping the subsequent case law.

Product liability is increasingly critical across the industry due to its potential impact on brand reputation and the complexity of these cases which are often litigated before different judicial authorities.

Our team has unrivalled experience in handling all aspects of these cases, from pre-trial strategies to litigation including criminal prosecution and damage actions before the civil courts.
