Administrative and Public Law
Our Administrative and Public Law Team has been actively advising national and multinational clients on public and regulatory law issues in Italy for more than 20 years both in judicial and extrajudicial matters.
We assist a number of major clients belonging to the pharmaceutical, medical devices, betting and gaming, energy, automotive, environmental, luxury, food&beverage and audiovisual industries.
The Team has gained specific experience and expertise in particular in relation to urban and town planning issues, pharmaceutical and life sciences regulatory work, betting and gaming, energy, automotive and environmental regulatory work, as well as public procurement, public tenders and public concessions.
We developed a wealth of experience assisting and representing clients in contentious cases before Public Administrations, Independent Authorities (such as the Securities Commission, the Competition Authority, the National Anti-Corruption Authority, the Telecoms Authority, the Data Protection Authority, the Medicines Agency and the Customs Agency), the Regional Administrative Courts throughout the country, the Italian Council of State, the Court of Auditors and the Constitutional Court.
We also advise companies in obtaining dual use export licenses and licenses with respect to transaction subjected to trade restrictions from the Ministry of Economic Development.
Our Administrative and Public Law Team works in close liaison with the Firm’s other practice areas, such as the M&A, IP, Corporate and Commercial and Tax Teams.
Our Administrative and Public Law Team has worked together since the early 2000s: the strong understanding among its professionals and their habit to team work allows them to be very proactive and to assist clients promptly and effectively.
Clients of the Administrative and Public Law Team benefit from a consolidated expertise that combines legal competences, understanding of the underlying economics and academic culture.
