Prestigious Italian laws firms merge to form PedersoliGattai

Italian law firm PedersoliGattai has announced its launch, which is the result of an alliance between two of Italy’s most prestigious law firms.
The new firm has a roster of around 350 professionals, of whom 64 are partners, with offices in Milan, Turin and Rome, and will have a combined annual turnover of around 120 million euros.

The new firm describes its launch as “the union between two of the most prestigiousItalian law firms and a group of professionals of the highest level. An unprecedented operation in Italy that creates a leader in the legal market”.

Gattai, Minoli, Partners was founded in 2012, on the initiative of a group of professionals that grew to become a team of more than 180 in its Milan and Rome offices. Exponential growth made the firm one of the most important in the Italian market and a constant point of reference in the mergers and acquisitions scene, with a recognized leadership position in assisting private equity funds.

For its part, Pedersoli is one of Italy's most renowned and respected independent law firms that has its roots in the firm founded by Alessandro Pedersoli in 1958, with offices in Milan, Turin and Rome.
The firm has a long tradition and consolidated expertise in assisting, both out-of-court and in court and arbitration, the country’s largest industrial and banking groups, as well as leading business families.

PedersoliGattai, the firm resulting from the merger, is “a cohesive and well-established group of lawyers that includes successful practitioners with decades of experience in all areas of M&A and capital market transactions who have developed an established and recognized market position assisting institutional clients, private equity funds, and industrial players in sophisticated and internationally focused transactions in a variety of industries, including banking and finance, insurance and payments, luxury, and infrastructure and transportation”.

Of the new firm, Carlo Pedersoli, chairman of the executive committee of PedersoliGattai, said: "We are excited about this important step. PedersoliGattai is the perfect convergence of highly experienced professionals with the ability to offer its clients quality advice, enhancing a long and prestigious tradition at the highest levels of the profession”.
“The union with professionals who are recognized and esteemed in the market guarantees that the values that have always characterized our approach to the profession will be maintained over time, also for the benefit of our younger colleagues, all oriented toward the creation of a modern, cutting-edge and excellent firm,” Pedersoli added.

For his part, Bruno Gattai, managing partner of PedersoliGattai, said the merger brings together, in one big firm, two of the most important so-called super boutiques.

“We are convinced it is an extraordinary operation in the Italian legal scene, which immediately positions us at the top of the market, with the size and means to be able to invest in technology, in our young talent and in those we will be able to attract, and at the same time creating the conditions to ensure a splendid future that goes far beyond the working horizon of the firm’s founders,” Gattai added.

And Carlo Montagna, an executive committee member and leader of the third group that will create PedersoliGattai, said: "a new, large firm is born today, with the shared mission of offering national and international clients excellent quality, and modern and timely service, equipped with professionals capable of successfully tackling all areas of law”.

“Stefano Cacchi Pessani, Enrico Vaccaro, Alessandro Capogrosso, Elisabetta Bellini and I are proud to participate in its founding,” he added, referring to some of the firm’s 65 partners.
