As Counsel in our Corporate Group, I lead the coordination and development of our corporate and capital market team in Rome.
Offering significant expertise in national and cross-border M&A transactions, I advise our Italian and foreign clients on drafting and negotiating acquisitions, shareholder and joint venture agreements and the various legal documents relating to mergers and spin-offs.
In addition, I have significant experience in private equity, assisting either investment funds or shareholders of the target companies.
Over the years, I have assisted our clients in M&A and private equity transactions in many different sectors. I have mostly worked in the banking sector, where I have advised major banks on acquisitions, joint ventures in the bancassurance sector and on significant outsourcing transactions in the Italian market. I have assisted major Italian and foreign clients on M&A transactions relating to healthcare structures and pharmaceutical business undertakings in the life sciences and healthcare sectors. In the energy sector, I have assisted the Italian transmisson grid operator on a number of transactions and many investors in the acquisition or dismissal of renewable projects and plants.
I have also gained a significant experience in the drafting and negotiation of commercial agreements, including outsourcing agreements, IT agreements, service agreements, EPC and O&M agreements.
Before joining Bird & Bird in 2014, I worked for an Italian firm and another global one. I am the author of several scientific articles on share purchase agreements, shareholder agreements and crowdfunding, published in leading Italian commercial law journals.
