It has been a great pleasure to host the GC Powerlist: Italy 2022 at the Armani Hotel, in Milan. Nearly thee years after the event last took place, the fifth edition of the event was a great success. Our head of GC Powerlists Gurpartap Basra and research editor Margherita Birri congratulated the talented GCs for their brilliant work. Every year it is harder to select from such capable figures. We, therefore, congratulate each of the GCs for facing continuous challenges and coming out stronger than before. A special thank you to Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, our sponsor, who supported The Legal 500 for the third consecutive edition.
