Public Law and Regulatory

The importance of Public Law and Regulatory in civil law jurisdictions cannot be underestimated by investors. Whether you wish to license an activity or product, enter into a contract with the State, notably a services or a supply contract, or a public works contract, or a concession, or if you wish to obtain approval of a specific investment project, you will have to deal with Administrative bodies, regulatory authorities and other public entities. Whether your application is denied or accepted, you will need expert legal advice to deal with these entities and to, in a worst case scenario, challenge decisions in court.
