Giovanni Pedersoli will join Pedersoli Studio Legale as Equity Partner.
Already an Equity Partner of the Firm, in 2007 Giovanni became Partner at Linklaters where he has been primarily working on M&A transactions in a variety of sectors including banking, asset management and, in general, the industrial sector. Giovanni’s international experience started at the beginning of his carrier when he obtained a master’s degree in law at New York University and worked for few years in the New York office of Skadden as an associate in the M&A group.
Together with Giovanni Pedersoli, who will start in November, also Marta will join the Firm as Partner. Marta Sassella holds both a degree in economics and a degree in law and started her carrier as an associate at Bonelli Erede until 2007 when she joined Linklaters where she eventually was appointed Counsel. At Linklaters she was primarily engaged in M&A transactions, both cross-border and domestic, with specific focus to public M&A, takeovers and Market Abuse Regulation matters.
The Executive Committee of Pedersoli Studio Legale, commented:
“We are happy to welcome Giovanni and Marta, two high quality lawyers whose arrival represents the natural continuation of the growth path undertaken by the Firm in recent years. We are convinced that their international experience will be a significant contribution to the Firm which for some time, and with success, has been pursuing a strategy aimed at positioning itself among the most qualified reference points for Italian clients operating abroad and for international clients operating in Italy. Our strategy resulted in the development of consolidated relationships with foreign clients and foreign firms, particularly in China, which we will further strengthen convinced as we are that our international practice will represent a growing part of our activity”
