Italy

A key driver of the global economy, the energy sector is affected by and affects global geopolitics, economics and regulation. You require advisors who not only understand your industry but also work on cutting edge issues. In addition to our Italian team, our professionals span 34 countries and work within every part of the energy sector, including upstream and downstream oil & gas, electricity in all its forms including generation, networks, wholesale and retail markets and renewables. Over the last 25 years, our experts have helped shape the sector by creating the legal frameworks upon which many of your markets are based.

Whether you are an oil & gas or electricity company, a NOC, independent, investor, government or financial institution, we have the energy specialists to meet all your strategic challenges globally. Our multi-disciplinary teams have advised on ground-breaking global oil and gas M&A and on power projects in Italy and in Europe.

In Italy we have a long lasting relation with our energy clients, some of which stay with us through the years.  We aim for your economic success and offer far sighted solutions whatever you do.

This collective experience means we can pre-empt and provide answers to the commercial, risk and regulatory issues you face in the energy sector.
