Our experienced team offers extensive cross-border disputes and corporate transactional credentials, with a particular focus on the energy, infrastructure, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.
Having been involved in Italy matters for decades, the recent opening of our office now allows us to build on this experience and our connections, to create a market-leading Italy practice that is fully integrated into the firm.
Working closely with colleagues worldwide, we provide full-service legal counsel to inward investors into Italy and support Italian clients on transactions outside the country.
We advise on general corporate and finance matters, including establishing subsidiaries in Italy and complying with Italian corporate regulations, as well as on issues relating to mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, real estate, competition, intellectual property, tax and administrative law.
Heavily involved in energy law matters within the oil and gas sector, we frequently counsel clients on cross-border energy transactions before the Italian and EU energy regulatory authorities, and assist in the structuring and negotiation of contracts for the transportation and distribution of natural gas.
Through our work on significant transactions, disputes and projects in the oil and gas and renewables sector, we have strong connections with national oil companies, and have acted on behalf of clients in numerous significant international arbitrations worldwide, handling disputes under the rules of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).
In addition, we have significant experience in the negotiation and drafting of commercial contracts in the real estate, distribution and corporate restructuring sectors, among others.
We regularly advise clients on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and represent funds and strategic investors in private equity transactions, corporate restructurings and foreign investments, as well as acting for Italian and international clients on antitrust matters.
Other broader sector experience includes industrial products, public utilities, construction, defense, and transportation and logistics.
