M&A

Our M&A Group consists of French, English and Italian lawyers working together within a single team, with a strong emphasis on international business.

We are very active in small and mid-cap target transactions. In this sector we are among the leaders for cross-border transactions between France and Italy. We work on acquisitions, share and asset deals, joint ventures, private equity or venture capital transactions, corporate reorganisation and restructuring.
The quality of our M&A work focusing on Italian and French transactions was recognised within the Le Fonti Awards for the years 2015, 2016, 2017. Also in 2017, two of our M&A team leaders, Enrico Castaldi and Gaspare Dori, were given the A and B ratings in the Corporate M&A Report of LegalCommunity.
