Plenty of recommendations for the firm in this sector by peers and clients. They are definitely the reference for the market in international arbitration”.

Competence, passion and dedication our main qualities according to clients. We thank them and, above all, our team of young and talented professionals.

The peculiarities of the Italian approach may have strong implications on litigation strategies for foreign companies.

Third-Party Funding is certainly one of the most recent trends in international arbitration. After the 2008 financial crisis, companies – either insolvent or not – increasingly relied on external funding to cover their arbitration-related costs. Will this trend continue or even boost amidst the COVID pandemic? In a webinar organized by the Camera Arbitrale di Milano, our senior associate Emilio Bettoni shares his expertise on Third-Party Funding, addressing its technicalities and the challenges that it poses in the international arbitration landscape. The webinar is part of the 14th edition of the course “Arbitrato: fondamenti e tecniche”.
