McDermott Enhances Cross-Border M&A Experience; Strengthens Italian Transactions Footprint


McDermott Will & Emery, a leading international law firm, today announced that Fabrizio Faina has joined the Firm’s Milan office as a partner in the corporate practice.

“Fabrizio is an exceptional corporate lawyer and his 20-plus years of cross-border M&A experience will immediately benefit our clients around the world who are seeking to enter the Italian market. We are committed to further strengthening our Milan office’s transactional capabilities given the city’s position as Italy’s financial capital. Fabrizio joining the Firm is a direct result of that commitment,” said Milan Department Head Ettore Scandale.

Fabrizio’s practice focuses on M&A and corporate law matters, with an emphasis on acquisitions and dispositions, joint ventures, private equity deals and reorganizations. He regularly advises Italian and international clients in a variety of industry sectors on cross-border and domestic transactions.

“McDermott’s premier global platform is exactly what my client base is looking for including unmatched legal expertise and a reputation for world-class client service in Italy and around the world. The Firm’s focused growth in Italy and Europe is exciting and made my decision to join McDermott an easy one,” said Fabrizio.

The Legal 500 EMEA has consistently ranked Fabrizio as one of Italy’s leading corporate and M&A lawyers since 2012. Fabrizio joins from global law firm Jones Day.

McDermott’s Milan practice provides effective, coordinated legal counsel to clients across a broad array of legal issues including helping Italian clients expand their operations and investments outside national borders and working with international companies seeking to enter the Italian market. As part of a global, full-service law firm, the lawyers of our Milan office are prepared to help clients wherever their business interests take them.
