Alessandro Vespa joins Cappelli RCCD from Nctm

After 10 years at Nctm (now Advant Nctm), real estate expert Alessandro Vespa has joined corporate and finance powerhouse boutique Cappelli RCCD as a partner.

Having been salary partner at Nctm since 2018, Vespa has particular expertise in leading on complex real estate transactions, including both single buildings and portfolios; he is well versed in advising investors and developers. Recent deals include advising Austrian real estate investor SIGNA Group on its purchase of the 210-room Bauer Palazzo Hotel in Venice, from American hedge fund Elliott Management and British fund Blue Skye Investment Group. The deal included both the building itself and the hotel operations.

Another major 2020 deal involved Vespa assisting Ardian with its €300 million purchase of a property portfolio, including buildings in Milan and Rome, from funds managed by DeA Capital Real Estate. Earlier this year, Vespa advised real estate investor Hines on its €75 million purchase of three logistics centres in northern Italy.

Cappelli RCCD now counts four partners among its real estate team; Veronica Vitiello and finance experts Alberto Del Din and Giuliana Durand round out the practice. Meanwhile, Advant Nctm’s practice retains key partner Luigi Croce, one of the market’s most prominent practitioners, as well as Christian Mocellin and Antonio Tola. Despite the loss of Vespa, the department is still one partner up from 2019: Vito Bisceglie and Giovanni Giuliani arrived in 2020 from DLA Piper and Chiomenti respectively.
