Professional Biography

WWL Ranking: Recommended

WWL says

Cristina Martorana “deserves to be on the list” say sources, who admire her deep knowledge of  administrative and environmental law as applied to the energy and infrastructure sector.


Cristina Martorana is specialised in administrative and environmental law.

She has deep experience in Italian and European administrative law (judicial and out-of-court), particularly in the energy and infrastructure fields, and on matters related to: the construction, acquisition and financing of plants that produce energy from renewable and conventional sources; network infrastructures; gas; district heating; waste to energy; trading; environmental law; healthcare, PPP; and public procurement. At the Legalcommunity Energy Awards 2016 she was named Lawyer of the Year for Administrative Environmental Law. She was recommended as a “leading individual” for Italy in the energy chapter of The Legal 500 (2016-2018); and she is ranked among the leading individuals in the Italian energy sector by Chambers Europe (2016-2020), in which interviewees say she is "able to combine high-profile technical accuracy with a commercial mindset”. She is also mentioned in IFLR1000 as a notable practitioner for project development and in The Legal 500 as follows: “Cristina Martorana: high professionalism combined with a charismatic personality.”

Due to her experience and reputation in her fields of expertise, she has been invited to numerous conferences and seminars. In 2019 she was a speaker at an event organised by Banca Intesa at its London headquarters (also attended by Davide Crippa, under-secretary of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development), reporting on the regulatory aspects of the Energy and Climate Plan in relation to the 2030 objectives. She also spoke on the subject, “Traditional and New Instruments Supporting Renewables in Italian Energy Transition” at the Energy Market Conference held in Frankfurt on 21 November 2019.

She has also authored articles in both national and international specialised journals among others Alternative Energy & Power (Chambers and Partners, 2018).
