We represent and advise our clients on the formation and structuring of companies and other types of business activities in Italy and abroad (with the help of our foreign correspondents). In addition to assisting Italian and foreign clients in the start-up phase, we also support companies throughout their entire corporate life, assisting them in managing various aspects of corporate governance and corporate compliance. We take care of the drafting of standard contracts for companies and of any other type of contract related to corporate life, as well as the internal regulation of companies through ad hoc company bylaws and shareholders’ agreements.
We have extensive experience in managing extraordinary transactions (mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, share and business transfers) and corporate restructuring operations, and also offer advice on these areas.
We assist our clients in all aspects of the transaction and throughout its course, from the completion of preliminary evaluation and planning activities to the conclusion of the transaction. In particular, we take care of both due diligence activities and the preparation and negotiation of all contractual documentation, including ancillary documentation related to, for example, financing, guarantees and supply agreements for goods and services.
Our know-how and our experience enable us to approach extraordinary transactions, assessing the variety of aspects and issues that may arise (e.g., issues of European Union and competition law, intellectual property, information technology, employment law, and banking and finance law, as well as tax issues).
We assist our clients in corporate disputes including shareholder disputes and directors’ liability issues.
