Criminal Trials

Our senior partner, Prof. Riccardo Villata, assists clients in administrative criminal proceedings relating to the environment, town planning or public tenders, for example. The entire legislative system concerning the protection of the environment and the countryside (from national parks to marine-life reserves; soil defence to water protection; waste management to the clean-up of contaminated sites; atmospheric pollution to correct development of land according to building regulations and town planning) provides a series of sanctions which render qualified legal advice necessary for any entities 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 abuse of office and corruption for abuse of authority – for private businesses and public officials, and thus it is here that our advice and expertise play a crucial role.
