Di Santo Partners Speak at Conference for Italian Companies Looking To Do Business in the U.S.

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Di Santo LLP recently participated in an “International Franchising and Distributorship” conference sponsored by A.SVI.COM, an Italian organization for entrepreneurs. The event was aimed at familiarizing Italian investors and companies to the benefits and pitfalls of doing business in the United States. Di Santo LLP opened the day presenting the relevant legal issues that international investors have to face in approaching the U.S. legal system.  After a brief introduction by Pietro Lanzoni, Beth Di Santo spoke about the U.S. franchise model focusing on the advantages that the U.S. legal system offers to foreign-owned franchisers, the forms of international expansion and intellectual property protection. Ignatius Grande then summarized how litigation works in the U.S. and illustrated the steps that foreign companies can take to avoid litigation in the United States. He also summarized the potential costs of e-discovery in U.S. litigation and the different ways in which the U.S. and Italy approach privacy issues in e-discovery matters. Di Santo LLP is currently working with several Italian companies and individuals that are doing business or looking to do business in the U.S. market. Beth Di Santo can be reached at (212)766-2466 and Ignatius Grande can be reached at (212)766-2469. A link to the presentation can be found at the following website.
