Other significant work includes managing partner Filippo Modulo acting for BC Partners on the acquisition of an Italian dental service business, and Manfredi Vianini Tolomei advising Snaitech on its majority stake sale (by Global Games and OI-Games) to Playtech. Other key practitioners are 'highly trusted adviser' Carlo Croff, Luigi Vaccaro, Marco Maugeri and Luca Fossati, together with Stefano Mazzotti, Franco Agopyan, Antonio Sascaro and Italo De Santis.
