Italy is fully committed to sustainable energy production. The risk and cost of carbon emissions is more evident than ever, and we are on the path to achieving the ambitious targets set to reduce emissions. Renewable energy has never been more critical with clients needing specialized lawyers who fully understand the key issues, risks and opportunities affecting the sector. Significant structural changes brought about by government legislation and policy, constant and rapid technological developments particularly in the renewables sector, have created an increasingly complex business environment in the energy market. Zambelli Tassetto is able to provide effective representation and planning for its clients who operate within the power and utilities fields.

We have advised, in Italy and abroad, across all aspects of renewable energy including wind, solar, biomass and cogeneration, hydroelectric and clean tech projects as well as energy efficiency. Our focus is on advising clients in relation to end-to-end aspects of power projects.

Our legal services include procurement techniques and strategies, project structuring and financing, construction and engineering, framework and contracting, tender and cost control regimes, regulatory and administrative law. To meet the wide ranging needs of our clients, we are able to draw upon the firm’s expertise in administrative, construction, health and safety, employment, property, real estate, banking and finance, planning, environmental, corporate and commercial law. In addition, we have significant experience of resolving the complex disputes that energy & utilities projects can give rise to. This results in the ability to meet all the challenges our clients may face in terms of procedure, risks, and litigation.

We have represented major utilities companies, power producers and distributors, major contractors in the field of energy and plant construction, project operators, projects financers and investors. We have also assisted the first Italian real estate project for the conversion of a fossil fueled power plant.

Finally, Zambelli Tassetto has a broad range of transport experience (particularly in rail, roads and public transport) and our lawyers have broad experience in matters relating to procurement, leasing and maintenance transactions, on the outsourcing of maintenance operations and on major property and planning transactions and issues.
