The legal profession in Italy and the rules for outsourcing legal services

26 Apr 18

In recent years, given the rise of the globalized digital economy and the increasing profile of multinational companies, the practice of legal outsourcing has become more common. Outsourcing of legal services often involves a parent or multi-national company retaining the legal services of attorneys registered with bar associations different to the home country of the parent company or client. As there are few internationally registered attorneys who are fluent in Italian, this practice is less common in the Italian legal system.
