Slide We assist companies using integrated skills to better understand their needs

Corporate M&A

  1. Corporate finance deals for business combinations and the organisation of governance rules more closely aligned to business objectives are strategic elements for the growth and consolidation of companies.
  1. We assist private equity funds, Italian and foreign companies and industrial groups in their ordinary and extraordinary business transactions. We support them in the structuring and negotiation of M&A transactions, including those that are multi-jurisdictional, in a wide range of sectors including manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, retail, hotels and leisure, IT, insurance, media and telecommunications and impact investing.
  1. We base our work on a detailed understanding of the client's business needs and objectives. In the most complex transactions, the strength of our team lies in its multidisciplinary approach, the combination of the different skills of colleagues from the various departments of our firm and its ability to adapt to stakeholders using an appropriate language and style for the context. In addition, our experience of working with foreign stakeholders and our widespread presence in the major Italian economic hubs mean that we can also provide assistance for transactions involving different jurisdictions, while also bridging the cultural gap between the international market and the specifics of Italian business.
  1. Within the context of corporate finance transactions, our services cover the acquisition and divestment of shareholdings, mergers, demergers, sales and purchases of goods and companies, joint ventures and listings on regulated markets.
  1. We provide advice on setting up corporate governance tools appropriate for the strategic objectives of shareholders and corporate groups, and help them develop regulations for corporate relations and relationships with top management, proposing innovative solutions.
