Italian firm Bonelli Erede Pappalardo is relocating banking and finance partner Giuseppe Sacchi Lodispoto from Milan to London in a bid to strengthen the firm’s international offering.
Lodispoto joins London head Andrea Carta Mantiglia in the City, following the latter’s appointment to the role last year (13 March 2012).
Bonelli has also hired the general counsel of contracting company Ansaldo, Mauro Gigante, as an of counsel in Milan. Gigante will work regularly with the London office.
Lodispoto has been a partner at Bonelli since 2010, focusing on a variety of finance transactions.
Joint managing partners Stefano Simontacchi and Marcello Giustiniani, who were elected earlier this year (22 May 2013), said the move was part of the firm’s ongoing committment to developing its presence in London.
