Enforcement Foreign Judgment

This service is available across Italy

Who Is This Service For?

The service for the enforcement of a foreign court judgment in Italy is designed for individuals or entities who have received a judicial decision abroad and seek its recognition and execution within the Italian jurisdiction. 

This process is crucial for ensuring that rights established by foreign judgments are respected and enforced in Italy, especially for:

  • Individuals or corporations with a foreign court judgment they wish to enforce in Italy.
  • Those looking for legal assistance in navigating the complexities of international private law.
  • Parties interested in recovering assets, enforcing family law judgments, or implementing business-related decisions made abroad.
Who Is This Service For?


  • The judgment must be final and non-appealable in its country of origin.
  • It should not contradict any previous judgment issued by an Italian court.
  • The foreign judgment must not be in conflict with Italian public policy.
  • Adequate notification of the original proceedings to the party against whom enforcement is sought, ensuring their right to defend.

Process: Step by Step

  1. Initial analysis of the foreign judgment to ascertain its compatibility with Italian law requirements and to determine the correct procedure to follow: exaquatur or that it falls under the aegis of EU regulations.
  2. Preparation and submission of the application for recognition to the relevant Italian court.
  3. Representation in any court hearings or proceedings required for the enforcement of the judgment.
  4. Assistance in the actual execution of the judgment, such as asset recovery or implementation of orders.
