Corporate M&A

Over the years, the team has been involved in significant and sophisticated extraordinary transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic financial and industrial alliances, spin-offs, and corporate group restructurings. These transactions have included public takeover and exchange offers on regulated markets alongside leading national and international financial and industrial operators for listed and private companies.

The team operates closely with other practices within the Firm, providing clients with comprehensive  assistance and addressing issues ranging from antitrust and regulatory matters to labor law,  financing, tax, and pre-contentious and contentious  issues.

Thanks to a solid international background and a deep understanding of the Italian market and  entrepreneurship, the Firm effectively balances the  needs of international investors with domestic logic,  structuring M&A transactions in line with  international best practices and, simultaneously,  within the national context.

The Firm has exceptional experience in M&A  operations in the banking and financial services  sector, including M&A transactions in crisis and  insolvency situations. It has handled past decades’  most essential and sophisticated, often systemic,  transactions.

Additionally, the Firm has consolidated experience in  the Private Equity sector, having been involved in  and constantly following the most significant  transactions in Italy. The team assists Italian and  foreign funds of primary standing and entrepreneurs  and critical key managers during the investment and  exit phases.

The M&A team is regularly called upon to assist  family businesses in their development and growth  through strategic integrations and adopting  governance models that best suit specific situations  and needs, including considerations for generational  transitions or market openings. This is supported by  the experience gained in providing legal and  regulatory assistance, including ongoing support, to  publicly traded companies, their management and  control bodies, committees, and shareholders  regarding primary and secondary corporate  regulations, information obligations, corporate governance, and compliance.
