Constitutional and International Law

National and multinational companies belonging, amongst others, to the pharmaceutical, automotive, construction and infrastructures, audiovisual and betting and gaming industries are our regular clients that are frequently concerned with constitutional and international law issues.

De Berti Jacchia Franchini Forlani provides assistance in proceedings before the Constitutional Court arising from constitutional references, as well as developing and advancing constitutional arguments in ordinary litigations and on proposed legislation and regulations.

We work on highly complex multi-jurisdictional disputes involving issues of international arbitration jurisdiction, choice of law, recognition and enforcement of foreign judgements and issues of public international law, including the law of treaties, international responsibility, State and diplomatic immunities, the law of the sea and international trade law.

We provide regular advice on human rights, and assist our clients in assessing and managing human rights risks within their business activity and relationships.

Our professionals are specialized in cases of violation of the European Convention on Human Rights (EHRC), before the Court of Strasbourg and the national courts, including on exhaustion of domestic remedies, excessive duration of national proceedings, fair compensation, representation before the European Court of Human Rights (EHRC), admissibility criteria, drafting, filing and managing of applications.



We deliver a fully integrated service.
We regularly collaborate with the Firm’s other practice areas, such as the Litigation Team, the Administrative & Public Law Team, the EU & Competition Team and the Tax Team.

The management of the cases we are entrusted with is always accompanied by an analysis and assessment of constitutional and international features.
