Gattai, Minoli, Agostinelli & Partners wins before the State Council with PPG Italia Sales & Services S.r.l.

Silvia D’Alberti successfully represented PPG Italia Sales & Services S.r.l. (PPG) before the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio (TAR) and the Supreme Administrative Court (Consiglio di Stato) obtaining the annulment of the Italian Competition Authority (Autorità Garante della concorrenza e del mercato – AGCM) decision which summoned PPG to the payment of additional penalties on the amount due as fines imposed on the company as a result of the Vernici Marine investigation.

The Supreme Administrative Court held the Italian Competition Authority’s claim groundless in the absence of a delay in the obligation to pay the administrative fines, from time to time promptly executed by PPG.
