Sutti Milan eyes South and Central America

Studio Legale Sutti has launched a Latin desk at its head office in Milan to target markets in South and Central America

Sutti is reviewing and expanding its best-friends network in the region. It already works with Argentinian firm Allende & Brea to advise Italian holders of Argentinian bonds in relation to the restructuring of Argentina’s private debt.

Spanish-qualified Veruska de Prado is coordinating the desk. Clients include software and e-commerce company ArtinSoft and electrical equipment manufacturer BTicino.

Managing partner Stefano Sutti said: “Italy remains, for historical, commercial and cultural reasons, a strategic partner for Latin America.”

In a separate move, Spanish firm Cuatrecasas has also launched a Latin American desk from Madrid.
