We are committed to following the development of European Law and private international law, the implementation of Directives and proposed Regulations, and in sharing information on the varying interpretations of EU Law by the courts of the Member States and the ECJ.

Many of our clients are nationals of EU Member States who are resident in Italy, or have business or properties in Italy. We are interested in how EU law is implemented in Italy, and often advise clients on the rules for establishing residence, the free movement of goods and services, the right to health care and employment rights: these are important principles which if wrongly applied are difficult to challenge.

We are representing a British claimant in his application to the European Court of Human Rights to challenge the rule on non-residents losing their right to vote after 15 years outside the UK, and we expect a ruling on this in 2013.

We have a network of lawyers in the EU with whom we exchange updates and information on private international law in each country.

We will publish on this website a selection of useful resources and links to conferences and workshops on this area of law for lawyers and students.
