Financial Institutions

This team assists banking groups, asset managers (in particular, AIFMs), insurance companies, financial intermediaries, banking foundations and other regulated industries operating domestically. The firm's assistance includes the start-up phase, daily operations, obtaining authorizations from supervisory authorities, extraordinary transactions and restructuring. This team focuses on issues of governance, ownership structure, organizational structure, remuneration and incentives, capital requirements, contracts and relationships with customers and regulatory requirements.

In addition, the team has gained considerable experience in the field of authorization procedures for the establishment of banks, asset management companies, brokerage firms, AIFMs, SICAVs, SICAFs, investment funds and crowfunding. They assist with equity transactions (such as issuance of equity and capital relief instruments), with legal proceedings against clients and other intermediaries, and with legal defenses and enforcement procedures initiated by the supervisory authorities – Bank of Italy, CONSOB (the Italian securities and markets Authority), IVASS (the Italian Insurance Authority) and Ministry of Economy and Finance. This has led Studio Pedersoli to provide assistance with the most important and systemic banking restructuring operations in recent years.
