The 2016 edition of the Legalcommunity Finance Awards – one of the most important recognitions of excellence in the Italian legal market – was held in Milan on 25 February.
BonelliErede received the most prestigious award: “Law Firm of the Year”, with Emanuela Da Rin, Antonio La Porta, Gabriele Malgeri and Giuseppe Mele from our banking and finance team taking the stage to accept the award.
The judging panel highlighted that our clients can count on a banking and finance team who “are considered market leaders in their respective areas” and had assisted on “some of the biggest transactions of the year”. The panel further noted that “the latest lateral hire has enhanced the team’s expertise even further”.
BonelliErede also received the award for the “Finance Restructuring Deal of the Year”, for the restructuring of a company operating in the heating industry. The judging panel commented that: “This transaction is the first of its kind in Italy and represents a new model of collaboration between market players for the rescue and recovery of companies in crisis”. Two of our young bright talents, Gianpaolo Ciervo and Vittorio Cavajoni, were proud to accept the award.
Co-managing partners Stefano Simontacchi and Marcello Giustiniani commented that: “These prestigious awards and the judges’ reasoning further confirm our firm’s renowned tradition of high values and ability to innovate in all areas we operate”.
