For more than 20 years, Stefano Crosio has advised public and private corporate clients and financial investors, particularly in the context of cross-border M&A transactions. He has significant experience advising U.S.-based clients and multinationals in their investments or divestments in Italy. Stefano's practice focuses on public and private M&A, takeovers, transactional private equity, joint ventures, and general corporate counseling.

He regularly advises on tender offers and other extraordinary transactions involving corporations listed on the Milan Stock Exchange and advises hedge funds on Italian equity capital markets regulations.

Stefano's recent experience includes advising U.S.-listed corporations in: (i) the takeover and delisting of an Italian-listed industrial component corporation; (ii) a minority investment in an Italian-listed health care company; and (iii) the acquisitions of Italian companies manufacturing cooling towers, coatings for tiles, and digital marine navigation maps. He also advised a French energy conglomerate in its takeover of an Italian-listed energy corporation, a Canadian-listed corporation in the merger of its European carton board business with an Italian-listed corporation, and an Italian client in the sale of an apparel company to a British PE fund.

Stefano is based in the Milan Office but regularly spends time in the New York Office to more closely service Jones Day's North American clients. Before joining Jones Day, he was an M&A partner with Italy's largest business law firm and was head of their New York office. He also served as general counsel of a corporation listed on the Milan Stock Exchange.
