Corporate and commercial: trends and issues – Italy


07 December 2020

Corporate & Commercial Italy

Corporate and commercial law has been a major focus for companies worldwide, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to affect contracts. There has also been an increased focus on board composition (particularly with regard to gender balance) and directors’ duties and liability.

In this series, ILO caught up with some of our leading specialists around the world to discuss the three main corporate and commercial issues affecting their jurisdiction in 2020 and what we should look out for in 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the Italian corporate and commercial world. As part of its response, the government suspended certain corporate obligations for companies (including with regard to bankruptcy law and the increase of stock capital) and granted state guarantees concerning financing loans.

In the below video, Eugenio Vaccari discusses these matters and the potential impact that they may have on companies in Italy.
