Depiction of Italy

Italy

Welcome to Italy

With offices in Milan and Rome, Oxera is uniquely committed to the Italian market. We deliver insight across a wide range of sectors, and enjoy creating long-standing partnerships with the people we work with.

With an in-depth understanding of the Italian market, we work closely with businesses, regulatory agencies, policymakers, and investors on high-stakes regulatory assessments, and in due diligence, market analysis, and strategy. Our experts who work in competition, dispute, and state aid cases are internationally recognised as leaders in their field.

We work side by side with our clients, including the most well-thought-of law firms, in high-profile merger, competition, damages, and regulatory cases that go before the Autorità Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato, the European Commission, sectoral regulators, and the Italian courts.

Stretching beyond national borders, our Italian- and English-speaking teams in Milan and Rome draw on expertise from across Oxera’s network of European offices, supported by local academic Associates and Senior Advisers.
