Listening closely to our clients’ needs, heeding their concerns and understanding their goals lie at the heart of our M&A practice.

And this brings instant advantages: lower consultancy costs, more efficient process management, and excellent timekeeping. All this goes hand-in-hand with our top-notch standards – the reason we continue to be the market leaders.

We will support you with dedicated teams who can handle every aspect of your transaction whatever the timeframe and work hand in hand with your people. We can handle, in addition to environmental and tax issues, any regulatory and public authorisation matters and the most complex compliance matters, including extra-territorial application of foreign laws.

With us, any company or large group – be it Italian, foreign or multinational – acquiring a company or business in Italy can be sure of the highest standards of service. As can a private equity firm for its investment and divestment transactions. Italian entrepreneurs looking to sell their companies can be equally confident of maximising the value of the sale whilst minimising every possible risk. We provide advice on the acquisition and sale of shares, companies and business lines, as well as on the establishment of joint ventures. You can rely on us when your M&A deal involves contributions, demergers, mergers, spin-offs and/or restructuring the target company’s governance. For listed companies, we also oversee operations involving all aspects of potential takeover bids, managing the process from start to finish, including liaising with the regulator and all other parties involved. We offer you all our experience no matter what route your M&A deal takes.

Thanks to our sector specialised focus teams, we have unrivalled experience in regulated and industrial sectors, as well as in real estate and infrastructures. We are also leaders in the energy sector – oil & gas (upstream and downstream), electricity, and renewables.
