Leading M & A lawyer Roberto Cappelli has joined Gianni Origoni Grippo & Partners as a name partner starting from December 1.
The firm’s new title will be Gianni Origoni Grippo Cappelli & Partners.
Based in Rome and Milan, Cappelli joins with a team of lawyers from his previous firm Grimaldi e Associati. He was one of the founders of that firm and also led the firm’s corporate and M&A departments in Italy.
Francesco Gianni, senior partner at Gianni Origoni Grippo & Partners describes Cappelli as “a highly respected lawyer” in Italy and internationally. Adding that, “his outstanding professional reputation makes him a significant asset for consolidating the leadership of not only our corporate finance group, but of the entire firm. The decision taken at the partners’ meeting to expand our name underlines the contribution that Cappelli will make to the growth of the firm.”
“Gianni Origoni Grippo & Partners is not only a clear market leader, but is also equipped with a truly integrated set of capabilities and areas of geographical focus,” said Cappelli. “I am sure that the combination of the experience I have accumulated so far and the vision that has characterised the history of the firm will result in significant synergies, further boosting its plans for growth”.
Cappelli is listed in The International Who’s Who of Mergers and Acquisitions Lawyers.
