Department profile by Wolf Theiss

During the past few years we have been involved in and have advised on some of the most challenging and important business transactions and projects in Albania.

Our Reputation

Our business law attorneys are involved in most of the major and important transactions taking place in Albania and have built a strong reputation as diligent and skilful professionals; not only amongst the major business players but also with state authorities and institutions.

Our Cases

We are currently advising major investors and large local companies on issues regarding all legal aspects of a business activity from corporate issues to regulatory, employment, IP protection, financing and commercial contracts.

Our Role

Recent developments have shown that the trend is strongly focused on energy  and infrastructure investments and the big international financial institutions have been very oriented towards playing an active role in these activities in Albania. The telecommunication and media sector has also been very active during the few past years. Our clients benefit from our team's excellent relationships with local regulators and government officials which are essential assets when adapting to new regulatory regimes; particularly in Albania where these are constantly under improvement and harmonisation with EU legislation.

We truly operate as a single firm. This enables us to always assign the best team of lawyers in accordance with the specific needs of a client. Each of our offices works on transactions that rank among the most significant in their markets so our clients can rely on unified high quality work. Our lawyers have years of experience of working together on cross-border transactions. Our clients have one point of contact.

Our Work

As an example, we recently negotiated on behalf of our client, a complex PPP agreement with the Albanian Government in relation to an important infrastructure project, furthermore we have been selected to advise EBRD and IFC in several projects they have in the energy and power sector. We were selected due to our expertise, our ability to immediately mobilize and coordinate a large and specialized team of lawyers in all relevant countries, and our long track record of large transactions in CEE/SEE.
