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 North American 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 corporate governance. He regularly advises in the context of 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. clients in: (i) the takeover and delisting of an Italian-listed industrial component corporation; (ii) a minority investment in an Italian-listed health care company; (iii) the off-exchange sale of a qualified minority interest in an Italian-listed tiremaker; and (iv) acquisitions or sales of Italian companies operating in the industrial, chemical, oil & gas, media, aviation, automotive, technology, and consumer products industries. He also advised a French conglomerate in its takeover of an Italian-listed energy corporation and a Canadian-listed corporation in the merger of its European carton board business with an Italian-listed corporation.
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.
