Administrative Law

With energy regulations, litigation, tenders, administrative licences, and public anticorruption regulations, you need someone by your side with a clear view, someone with a firm grip on the subject in question: we will give you a crystal-clear analysis when it comes to examining costs and benefits.

Although regulations may be fragmented, our administrative team, supported by our sector specialised focus teams, is primely positioned to offer the best possible assistance for each sector (telecommunications, TV, internet, energy, water provision, environment, central and local public services, construction, health and pharmaceuticals, banking and insurance, transport, motorways, gaming, environment and tenders etc.).

We offer the best possible solution, whether you’re a multinational, an SME, a government-owned company, or a national or local public authority.


Here’s what sets us apart

  • Our approach is based on obtaining a global view of each situation. As well as analysing the specific legal issues for each case, we assess the litigation risk; when appropriate, we also look at public compliance profiles and financial aspects
  • We have specific expertise and experience in many sectors, including electronic communications, public-private partnerships, innovation partnerships and environmental regulations
  • We support you throughout the entire value chain: from first contact with the public authorities, particularly at the planning stage, and feasibility and pre-feasibility studies, to bidding for and launching public tenders, performance of contracts awarded and, as necessary, disputes (before administrative courts, the Italian Supreme Court of Cassation, European courts, the Court of Auditors)
