14 Jun 2019

The Italian equity capital markets team at international law firm Simmons & Simmons has been named Best Equity Capital Markets Law Firm of the Year at the 2019 Legalcommunity Corporate Awards, held on 13 June at WJC Square in Milan.

Legalcommunity is a leading legal publication. It is part of LC Group, which operates in Italy, Spain and Latin America through the Iberian Legal Group.

The jury explained its decision stating: “This year the firm, which already has a well-established reputation in debt capital markets, received numerous accolades for its work on equity capital markets. Much of the feedback regarding the ECM team highlighted its practical approach and excellent understanding of clients’ needs.”

The awards ceremony – which honours excellence in the Corporate sector of the legal market, from both an in- and out-of-court perspective – is one of the most important events of the year for business lawyers in the sector. This year over 850 guests attended the event, including general counsels and legal counsels of prestigious Italian and international companies.

Augusto Santoro, partner in the equity capital markets team in Milan, commented: “We are excited to receive this prize and see the market’s recognition of the highly innovation solutions and flexible approach that characterise our team.”

This award follows a successful year for the Italian office, which was named “Finance Law Firm of the Year” at the 2019 Legalcommunity Finance Awards and “Investment Funds Law Firm of the Year” at the 2018 TopLegal Industry Awards.
