Construction and infrastructures

Our knowledge of the sector is unparalleled: we have been advising the leading players in the civil engineering and the oil, chemicals and energy sectors in Italy and throughout the rest of the world for decades.

We can support you throughout each stage of your project, from bidding in tenders to managing contractual claims; and our international arbitration and litigation experts are close at hand to advise and assist if things escalate.

Our team’s in-depth knowledge of the various types of works contracts and financial structuring (including project financing and ancillary guarantees for contracting agreements), means we are the people to call if you need help with issues such as abuse of economic dependence, compliance with sub-contracting regulations, tax and corporate matters (including the progress of works and risk provisions recorded in the balance sheets), risk assessment in insolvency proceedings involving your counterparties, and contractual remedies.

Our multidisciplinary approach means we are primely placed to provide the best possible assistance to large companies and multinationals (Italian and non-Italian) in the petrochemical, transport, property, energy and defence/aerospace sectors.

We also advise Italian and international institutional and financial investors and infrastructure investment funds.

 

Here’s what sets us apart

  • We provide in- and out-of-court support regarding large public and private contracts in Italy and abroad
  • We have experience across all continents, both directly and through our network of leading law firms in other jurisdictions
  • Our team includes former general counsels from oil and gas, construction and defence/aerospace companies
