We are very pleased that Federico has chosen Legance to continue his professional career and we are certain – concludes Penna – that the expansion of the team will allow us to be even more efficient in providing assistance to our clients, both in the area of extraordinary transactions involving regulated entities and in connection with the continuous evolution of the regulatory framework, which implies the necessity to expand the skills that we have developed within our Firm”.
