  • Futura Law Firm and Internationalisation: contractual and corporate strategy for expansion into international markets.
  • Internationalisation is a strategic factor as globalisation and digitalisation favour the creation of a single global market and, therefore, companies of all sizes are required to be born (if start-ups) or become (if SMEs) international in order to operate in foreign markets to expand business opportunities and demonstrate an innovative, modern and strategic character.

  • Method: (i) analysis of the business model, products/services marketed, customers/suppliers in the target countries, (ii) identification of risks, (iii) choice of the most appropriate type of contract for the type of relationship, (iv) drafting of contracts and protections consistent with the analysis carried out.

Corporate disputes

  • Futura Law Firm and corporate disputes: endosocietal conflicts in interlocutory, ordinary (also before the Supreme Court of Cassation) and arbitration proceedings
  • Theproper handling of corporate disputes is crucial to avoid that an internal conflict leads to the implosion of the company and to the stoppage of business activities, frustrating the commercial efforts of growth and market positioning.
  • We assist shareholders and directors in disputes such as liability actions, challenges to shareholders' and board resolutions, conflicts between shareholders and between companies and directors, and disputes over breaches of shareholders' agreements.
  • Method: we share strategies with our clients in order to draft accurate, documented and thorough defence texts, ensuring constant attention to the problem and favouring, where possible, non-confrontational solutions aimed at settling the problem as we are aware of the time (even before the expenses) that a legal dispute requires from the entrepreneur.
  • In addition, we take on corporate positions (such as directors without proxies and joint representatives of bondholders) and manage them with awareness and professionalism.
  • We also offer advice on the drafting of minutes of boards of directors and shareholders' meetings in order to enable the key players to comply with the forms required for their role and tell their position accurately and completely, to their benefit and that of the company.

Contractual disputes

  • Futura Law Firm and contractual disputes: litigation (including before the Supreme Court of Cassation or arbitration) relating to the pathological phases of contractual and commercial relationships with suppliers, partners and clients.

  • Method: we share strategies with clients in order to draft accurate, documented and thorough defence texts, doing everything possible to avoid the client having to add haste to the inevitable difficulty of reconstructing, documenting and proving his theses, each time with the aim of examining possible out-of-court solutions to limit the time and money spent on a matter, the judicial one, which is uncertain and distracts from the business activity.
