privatizations, publicly-owned companies
and public economy law

Our Firm provides advice on the design and implementation of legal instruments for managing public services. Operations can take place on a national level, as in the case of public economic entities becoming joint-stock companies. In this case, we can also assist our Clients during the subsequent public offering phase. Conversely, on a local level, we assist in the incorporation of joint-stock companies, also those with private shareholding, and of the so called “special companies“, i.e. companies owned by local/municipal authorities. In particular, our Firm’s lawyers have represented clients working in integrated water management services, gas and electricity management, public transport, waste collection and disposal, cultural services and personal care services sectors.

Our Firm provides advice in the preparation of regulatory acts for the formal and substantial privatization of publicly owned bodies or companies working in the field of public services.
