Dimarco & Partners International Law Firm
Our Lawyers in Milan are specialized in litigation and disputes in the whole italian territory. We represent corporate entities and individuals in front of the Court of Milan and in front of all the other national courts, in all the italian jurisdictions and in every grade of the Court trials (first instance, Court of Appeal of Milan and Supreme Court). We can also represent our customers in cross border litigations in all the foreign countries, in Europe, America, Asia and Africa.
Our Law Firm policy is to appoint an attorney in charge of the dispute and his substitute, another lawyer with experience that is able to replace the first advocate in case of his absence and to assure the same quality of the service. This policy guarantees the Client to have always a personal referral for his case. The most important decisions, of course, are taken jointly by the two lawyers. Our Litigation Lawyers provide a professional and qualified service that allows the customer to be a competitive player in the market. We believe that the judicial phase is very delicate and that the lawyers should act methodically in the litigation matters. Our modus operandi is the following one:
CIVIL ORDINARY COURT TRIAL:
1. I want to sue in front of the Court of Milan a subject: do I need to hire a litigation lawyer in Milan?
In general you always need an Italian Lawyer to provide judicial activities if the value of the case overcomes the amount of euro 1.100,00. It is important that the lawyer is duly registered at one of the Italian bar associations.
2. An Italian subject sues me in front of the Court of Milan. Shall I provide written defenses or evidences to the court personally or through a lawyer which is not registered as a lawyer in Milan or in Italy?
Very often foreign subjects make the mistake of providing defenses to the court via post office alone or with a foreign lawyer and without hiring a lawyer in Italy. The defenses or the evidences, without an Italian lawyer acting on your behalf and according to the Italian laws, would be ineffective and invalid. You always need to hire an Italian lawyer which have the habilitation in Italy. All our Lawyers in Milan may represent the Client in any court trial and in any jurisdiction (civil, criminal and administrative).
3. If I am sued in front of the Court of Milan, do I have a term to provide written defenses?
Depending on the kind of lawsuit you receive you must respect a deadline or you may lose your rights or part of your rights. The most common cases are the order of payment received (they become final and binding within 50 days from their receipt if you are an EU citizen or corporate entity or 60 days if you are located outside EU). In case the Italian plaintiff is starting an ordinary judicial action, you must pay attention to the court hearing indicated in the notified writ of summon. It is possible that some other special procedures have different terms of constitution.
4. How much does a court trial in Milan last?
The court trial in Italy is very technical and our Litigation Lawyers in Milan on average need to write 7 judicial deeds and to attend 4-5 court hearings. On average the first instance may last between 2 and 4 years.
5. I am a foreign company and I was sued by an Italian company. I believe that there is a lack of Italian jurisdiction, what shall I do?
In any case you shall partecipate to the court trial and in the due terms bring to the court the written defense, respecting the deadlines. In this way our Lawyers will ask the court to evaluate the lack of jurisdiction. If you do not join the court trial the court will decide also if there is a lack of jurisdiction and you will not be able to file this objection anymore.
6. Do I have right to the reimbursement of the legal fees I paid in case I am the winning party?
Yes, normally the court entitles the winning party to receive the reimbursement of the legal fees paid to the attorneys.
7. Do you work on the basis of the principle "no cure no pay" and so, on the basis of a success fee?
No, the success fee as a method of remuneration is considered unlawful in Italy and a lawyer that works charging exclusively with a success fee may be suspended for 6 months by the bar association.
