Criminal Trials

Our senior partner, Prof. Riccardo Villata, assists clients in administrative criminal proceedings relating to topics such as environment, town planning or public tenders.

The entire legislative system concerning the protection of the environment and landscape (from national parks to marine-life reserves, from soil defence to water protection, from waste management to the clean-up of contaminated sites, including atmospheric pollution and development of land according to building regulations and town planning) provides for a series of sanctions and penalties which render qualified legal advice necessary for any entity who may become involved in this sector.

Violations of the cited regulations, as well as those generally governing the activity of Public Administrations, often involves criminal charges - such as bid rigging, abuse of power and authority, and corruption - for private businesses and public officials, and this is where our advice and expertise play a crucial role.
