A new scenario for Italy: the compulsory mediation of civil and commercial disputes

Cerca per...
In March 2010 the government approved a legislative decree to implement the EU Mediation Directive (2008/52/EC). Legislative Decree 28/2010 introduced a compulsory mediation stage for resolving civil and commercial disputes.

The decree’s ambitious aim is to reduce the number of cases pending before the Italian courts and thereby cut the duration of a typical lawsuit – at present, the average period from the beginning of a first instance claim to the issuance of a final judgment by the Supreme Court is approximately eight years.
