Energy & Infrastructure

To succeed in a complex sector like energy & infrastructure, you need extensive knowledge of the country and the way the public authorities operate. We have this knowledge.

Providing legal services in regulated sectors, such as energy and telecommunications, requires specific teams that bring together expertise from different practice areas. Our clients expect advanced, multidisciplinary consultancy services with the timescales and approach that only a large, efficient law firm can provide. That’s why we have an Energy & Infrastructure Focus Team.

Our service is truly all-encompassing: we combine assistance in extraordinary transactions with advice and litigation support (in Italy and abroad) in the energy and grid markets, ad hoc legal opinions on European law, and all the other services financial and industrial clients could ask of a law firm.

We work with oil & gas multinationals, leading Italian and international names in energy, transport and telecommunications, and national and local public entities, on privatisation and business combination plans. We are the benchmark for large infrastructure funds looking to enter the Italian market because we know the market inside and out and get straight to the heart of every issue.

When we say we’re multidisciplinary, we really mean it. We will always be right by your side, offering the highest standards of service for all aspects of your business.


Here’s what sets us apart

  • We provide outstanding service in all areas of law relevant to these sectors. Our partners are ranked as leaders by the main international legal guides in corporate, contract, public and environmental law, project finance and antitrust sectors
  • We have very strong ties with the financial and industrial communities in Italy
  • We know how to interact with the authorities and the public sector
  • We combine academic experience and the expertise of a specialist boutique firm with the approach of a large international law firm
