Cappelli RCCD expands with the entrance of the new partner, Ilaria Maria Placco, thus bringing the number of partners to 25 and consolidating the Corporate M&A team.

She arrives from Gianni & Origoni, where she joined in 1999 and where she has been a partner since 2008. Ilaria specialises in corporate and commercial law and advises Italian and foreign entrepreneurs and companies in domestic and cross-border M&A and private equity transactions. She has extensive experience in structuring and negotiating investment agreements, shareholders’ agreements, joint venture agreements and commercial contracts covering a wide range of economic sectors. She also provides day-to-day advice on corporate, commercial and contractual matters.

The associate, Beatrice Olivieri, also joins the Firm. Both Ilaria and Beatrice are based in the Rome office.

The arrival of Ilaria Placco, as part of the Firm’s consolidated growth process over the last two years, in which the firm has seen the entry of four new partners and has grown from 65 to 95 lawyers, will enable the Firm to significantly strengthen its existing skills and enhance the natural synergies with all the practices relating to the Corporate M&A department.
