Financial Institutions

This is a sector that requires a high level of specialisation and advice focused on highly technical aspects (including of a regulatory and tax nature) and the banking and debt capital market best practices. And above all, this is where we need to demonstrate our efficiency, precision and swiftness.

Only a firm like ours can support certain leading Italian and European groups in acquisitions, mergers and joint-ventures, both national and cross-border. We have assisted foreign banks in some of the most important acquisitions in Italy and in complex cross-border reorganisations of their businesses. We also assist banks, insurance companies and insurance intermediaries in major national and international M&A deals. We also assist the management bodies of banks, insurance companies and banking foundations in acquisitions, defining the best governance structures, managing shareholdings, and devising and revising remuneration policies. Furthermore, we have worked alongside the most highly qualified insurance and banking operators in structuring, negotiating and managing complex joint ventures, and through bancassurance structures, for the structuring and management of insurance products and consumer credit.


Here’s what sets us apart

  • We are one of the few firms who can boast experience in a range of fields, from M&A to corporate governance, from joint venture contracts and strategic and commercial partnership agreements to consultancy services for banking, and insurance regulatory profiles and relationships with the supervisory authorities. Our unrivalled range of skills offers genuine added value
  • We are accustomed to building and maintaining relationships with independent Italian authorities, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, the European Commission and other competent institutions
  • We have assisted in the drafting of the new legislation applicable to project bonds to ensure their bankability, taking into account the requirements in the Italian infrastructure sector
