Venice - MDA defends in TAR important company specializing in local tourist transport

MDA – Associated Lawyers advocates before the Veneto  Regional Administrative Court (TAR)  a Group  that operates in many Italian art cities and which, through its branch company based in Venice, had  its authorization appealed  by another Venitian lagoon transport company – even if granted for running  the tourist line.

MDA assisted the company in the administrative procedure aimed at issuing a license for a tourist transport line in Venice. After the authorization was issued in July 2014, the competing operator challenged it, requesting its suspension and primarily claiming the interference and overlap of the new line with the local public transport service. By contrast, the licensing company claimed the liberalization of the tourist service and the absence of any interference or overlap.

The Veneto TAR, through its Order dated December 11, 2014, no. 636 rejected the request for suspension of the authorization’s validity, and dismissed the application as unfounded.
