Giliberti Triscornia e Associati was founded in Milan in 1988 and has quickly become a prominent firm in the fields of M&A, corporate restructuring and banking. Since the beginning, GTA has emphasized an across-the-board technical knowledge of its members, as well as the deep interaction among the firm’s departments and its foreign best-friend firms, to assist the clients in complex and cross-border transactions.

The diverse array of the firm members professional capabilities allows the firm to create avant-garde technical solutions that are now common leading practice, putting the clients in the best position to face the ever-growing complexity of today’s business world.

M&A, Extraordinary Transactions & Private Equity: Advice in extraordinary transactions has always been the focus of GTA practice, which covers the planning, the organisation and the implementation of the deal and the investment structure, in relation to both private and public target companies.

Plus, GTA is the twin-brother of private equity in Italy, having operated alongside leading Italian and European operators for years and providing

assistance in structuring and organising investment funds, assistance to fund underwriters and managers, and assistance in investment and divestment transactions, handling all aspects of the structuring and negotiation of acquisition contracts, financing agreements, and incentive plans for directors and managers.

Special Situations – Restructuring/Insolvency: Transactions involving companies in financial stress or bankruptcy are the field where the multi-faceted professional capabilities of the firm’s members are put to the fullest use.

Leaders of the Italian business community have always acknowledged the GTA ability to firmly navigate the clients to a safe harbor through the complicated waters of a special situation, with all the challenges coming from its commercial and banking law profiles, as well as market issues, accounting matters and liability profiles.

Banking & Finance: Banking and finance practice goes hand-in-hand with the expertise gained in M&A, real estate, energy and special situations transactions, in which the firm assists lenders and borrowers. GTA has recently bolstered a team that has in-depth, specialized experience in the sector of acquisition financing, leveraged financing operations, project finance, high yield issues in general, structured finance and securitisation. We leverage our expertise and knowledge of the private equity and debt markets to assist companies, funds and alternative lenders making direct lending deals.

Litigation: GTA’s vast experience in corporate and finance law has translated into a strong litigation practice – arbitral and judicial – that has expanded to the publishing and industrial property fields. The reputation of competence and loyalty the firm enjoys has earned GTA members many panel appointments in ad hoc proceedings (also managed by domestic and international institutions).

Private Clients: With discretion and good judgment GTA assists domestic and international private clients in their estate planning and wealth protection plans. The firm has developed a strong experience in setting up simple partnerships and trusts, in drafting wills and trustee mandates, in dictating the rules governing donations or in setting up the governance of a family business in the context of a generational shift, providing unique solutions to unique needs.
