Government & Infrastructure

Working with public institutions, government agencies and military bodies forces operators to address specific and unique legal issues. Public agencies are at the core of each Country’s economic and social development and private operators working with them need to comply with higher market and products’ standards.

Aware of all the above, we offer top legal services to meet both public and private clients’ needs, covering a wide range of sectors from public pension funds to hospitals, from public procurement procedures to transport.

We regularly assist public and private clients in litigation and ADR procedures, providing them with the most effective solutions in the collective best interest.

In this regard, we share our clients’ understanding and interact with such authorities even before the adoption of any relevant regulation, especially during public consultations and public hearings, to help shaping a regulatory environment as favorable as possible for our clients businesses.

We have helped our clients even during the worst periods of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, assisting them in the relationships with customers which have become more difficult after the cancellation of a number of flights following the outbreak of the virus and the adoption of restrictive measures by the Italian Government.
