Allen & Overy has suffered a setback in Italy, losing former head of its Italian corporate group, Paolo Cerina, to Australian asset managers Babcock & Brown.
Cerina's practice focused on international M&A deals, as well as joint-venture and private equity transactions. He has been a fixture in A&O's Italian department since the magic circle firm merged with Italian firm Brosio Casati e Associati in 1998.
Cerina's departure leaves A&O with six corporate partners in Italy spread between offices in Milan and Rome.
A&O has had a tempestuous year in Italy, losing Milan banking partner Davide Mencacci to rivals Linklaters, as well as partner Giancarlo Castorino to domestic firm Marena Bonvicini & Ludergnani.
