Abstract

We test the hypothesis that, being clients not fully informed on the expected benefit from fulfilling the disputes and being incentives of lawyers not aligned to those of their clients, the demand for legal disputes in Italy is induced. This hypothesis finds empirical support for a sample of Italian legal districts.
