Position

Alessandro Fosco Fagotto is a partner in Dentons’ Milan office and Head of the Italian Banking and Finance practice.

He gained great experience in advising lenders (his clients are almost all the most representative Italian banks, international banks providing financial support in Italy), financial sponsors (private equity and private debt funds), investors, other financial institutions and borrowers, in connection with a very broad range of financing transactions, including acquisition and leveraged finance, structured finance, real estate finance, general corporate lending and refinancing.

His experience also covers debt restructuring transactions, in particular, transactions designed to preserve the going concern (i.e. consolidation agreements, restructuring agreements, distressed M&A, sale of bank credits), as well as in all kinds of financing to be granted to distressed companies (bridge finance, interim finance and finance granted in the framework of restructuring plans). He also assists industrial groups interested in investing in distressed companies, in all consolidation path steps.

He is broadly acknowledged as one of the leading finance lawyers in Italy for his long-time presence (15 years) in the Italian debt market.

Career

Fosco joined Dentons in 2016 from Pedersoli Studio Legale, a leading Italian independent law firm, where he was a partner in the Banking and Finance department. Prior to that, he has been a partner at Marena D’Angelo & Fagotto and, formerly, at MBL & Partners.

He is a well reputed speaker at several conferences organized by the major Italian conference companies (i.e. Paradigma, Convenia, ITA SOI), with regard to banking, restructuring and other financial law matters.

He is a professor in training seminars on structured finance and restructuring held in the most important universities of Milan (i.e. Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi and Università Statale di Milano).
