Dewey & LeBoeuf’s Milan IP head Marco Consonni has left the firm with three lawyers to join Italian IP boutique Orsingher.
Consonni becomes the third partner at Orsingher, which was founded four years ago by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer partner Matteo Orsingher and associate Fabrizio Sanna.
Senior associates Iacopo Destri and Francesco Spreafico, along with associate Anna Vercellini, join an existing team of three associates at Orsingher to bring the total number of lawyers at the niche firm to nine.
Consonni said he shared Orsingher’s vision of a TMT-dedicated firm and thought his practice would be better suited to a boutique practice.
“The experience made in a large business multi-practice firm has finally convinced me that clients of those industries are hungry for lawyers who are able to combine a refined legal knowledge with a real familiarity and understanding of their very business issues and who are truly able to speak their ‘language’,” Consonni added in a statement.
