Orrick, a leading global law firm, has reinforced its M&A and Private Equity practice in Italy with the significant acquisition of Fabio Fauceglia and his skilled team, auguring the consolidation and expansion of Orrick’s footing in the Italian market. Notably, Fabio is a standout figure in the European private equity landscape, contributing his extensive experience from advising private equity investors to multinational corporations, family offices, and entrepreneurs on a myriad of transactions. His notable leadership in the $4.3 billion GE-Avio S.p.A. merger underscores his impact on the industry. The move aligns with Orrick’s strategic emphasis on energy, infrastructure, and technology sectors, particularly in cross-border dealings, which complements the firm’s overarching global goals. Fabio’s team, including Leonardo Pinta and five associates, emerges from Shearman & Sterling’s Italian M&A outfit, marking a transition fueled by Orrick’s dynamic ethos and commitment to quality and efficiency in legal service. This team’s integration is seen as a crucial step not only in Orrick’s Italian dominance but also in enhancing its global M&A and private equity platform. In broader terms, Fabio is one of several strategic hires by Orrick within Europe, joining recent additions in London and Düsseldorf, signaling a period of growth and client-focused realignment within the firm.
