Italy’s Portolano Cavallo adds of counsel to lead banking and finance area

Italian full-service law firm Portolano Cavallo has announced the incorporation of Alessandro Tanno as of counsel, and who will lead the firm’s banking and finance practice.


The firm, which specializes in the digital, media and technology and life sciences and healthcare sectors, said Alessandro’s incorporation is part of its ongoing expansion strategy.


Alessandro joins Portolano Cavallo having gained many years of experience at international law firm Linklaters.


He has deep experience in banking and finance assisting banks, financial institutions, investment funds, and companies with national and cross-border leveraged and acquisition finance transactions, as well as leveraged buyouts, corporate finance, asset finance, and high-yield bonds.


“Alessandro taking the helm of the firm’s banking and finance practice marks a crucial advancement in Portolano Cavallo’s expansion plan, which began with the hiring of partners Andrea Gritti and Gianpaolo Scandone to co-lead the firm’s private equity practice,” the firm said.


“Alessandro’s experience in the fintech and digital transformation sectors will also be a valuable asset for the firm’s startup and venture capital practice,” the firm added.
