With more than 20 years of experience, Fabrizio Faina has cultivated a practice focusing on M&A and corporate law matters, with an emphasis on acquisitions and dispositions, joint ventures, private equity deals, and reorganizations. He regularly advises Italian and international clients in a variety of industry sectors on cross-border and domestic transactions and draws upon his experience with a significant number of M&A deals in Italy to provide sound advice to clients facing similar situations.
Fabrizio's significant representations include, among other deals, advising a U.S.-listed company in two Italian acquisitions in the recreational vehicle sector, a Chinese fund in the acquisition of a majority stake in a leading Italy-based manufacturer of EOAT (end-of-arm tools) for industrial automation and robotic applications, a leading Italian bank in the disposal of its stake in four local banks, an Italian client in the acquisition of a stake in an Italian company running an Italian highway and the subsequent disposal of a portion of that investment, and a U.S.-listed corporation in the sale of one of its European apparel divisions and in the reorganization of its Italian business activities.
As a result of a four-year experience in the Jones Day offices in Saudi Arabia, Fabrizio is also regularly involved in acquisitions, joint ventures, and other commercial matters relating to Saudi businesses.
