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