Allen & Overy (A&O) has made its first lateral step to rebuild its Italian corporate practice with the hire of M&A specialist Giovanni Gazzaniga from Gianni Origoni Grippo & Partners.
One of Gianni's rising stars, Gazzaniga spent five years working directly under managing partner Franco Gianni. Gazzaniga is a specialist in joint venture agreements, acquisition finance and take-overs. He will start in A&O's Milan office in two weeks.
Gazzaniga said he joined A&O for the opportunity to work on international M&A deals. "The most important thing for me was to join an international law firm," he said. "It's very appealing to work on the largest cross-border deals."
A&O's plan to grow its corporate presence in Italy also helped entice Gazzaniga. "The firm's investing a lot and has interesting plans to expand," he added.
