Gattai, Minoli, Agostinelli & Partners further strengthens its real estate department by hiring Andrea Francesco Castelli as partner and practice co-head alongside Gianluca Gariboldi.
Federica Baccigalupi is also joining the team along with Andrea, as Associate.
Andrea holds a J.D., magna cum laude, with major in business law, from the Catholic University of Milan. Previously, he was senior associate at Chiomenti, where he assisted both Italian and international clients in M&A transactions and acquisitions of real estate portfolios and investments in real estate funds.
The strengthening of the real estate practice is part of the firm’s strategy for the development of those areas representing the most significant business opportunities and where the firm can still grow. The M&A and Finance departments have often been involved in important real estate deals and last year the Firm decided to set up a dedicated department with the entry of Gianluca Gariboldi, a renowned urban planning expert in the Italian market.
“Andrea and Federica – affirmed Bruno Gattai, Managing Partner of the Firm – are two talented young professionals, who have been involved for years on the transactional profiles of the most important deals of this practice area. With them the Firm strengthens and completes the M&A team and demonstrates once again the Firm ability to attract the most talented young professionals on the market.”
“With Andrea – stated Gianluca Gariboldi, Partner and Head of the Real Estate Department – we are now even more competitive having a greater expertise particularly on the M&A front, which makes us one of the main players in this practice area.”
