Corporate and M&A

The global market brought new opportunities but also new challenges to national and multinational companies, together with additional contractual and organisational complexity.

The growing need to cover matters related to social responsibility, ethics and consumer rights; the need to implement mechanisms for good corporate governance, allied to the optimization of organisations with special concerns for reputation, cost rationalization and reduction of likelihood of conflicts, require technically sound answers but with a strong practical sense.
