The legal and regulatory environment in which today’s companies operate is increasingly complex as regulators get both more interventionist and collaborative. These matters raise significant reputational risks for companies and individuals, as well as exposure to severe sanctions and to follow on civil litigations: regulatory enforcement can significantly impact on a firm’s future.
Alongside our work in the enforcement sphere, we provide practical advice on corporate governance, risk management and other areas which are key to our clients operating successfully in their respective regulated environments.
We are experienced in defending clients before both the competent administrative courts (Administrative Tribunal of Rome and Consiglio di Stato) and the competition authority. We are able to provide assistance in respect of agreements, abuses of dominant position, mergers and acquisitions, unfair practices, misleading and unlawful comparative advertising. Zambelli Tassetto provides support in cartel cases, advising on audits and raids and helping our clients to conduct litigation. In this respect, the wealth of experience of Zambelli Tassetto’s administrative and public law practice, the deep familiarity with the administrative law process and European law, and the capabilities of our litigation team, are highly effective. Informed by the experience in antitrust enforcement, we have the capabilities to design and implement competition law compliance programmes to suit our clients’ organisation. We have also developed experience in antitrust private enforcement actions and damages suits.
The correct circulation of data is a priority for any economic operator. This is particularly che case as a result of the widespread distribution of hi-tech digital tools which allow the use, availability and sharing of data beyond the physical and jurisdictional borders.
Zambelli Tassetto deals with privacy and data protection, general compliance, audits, preparation of documents and legal assistance regarding personal data processing, assistance with inspection and assessment proceedings brought by the Italian Data Protection Authority and appeal of the Authority’s decisions.
