Simone joined Osborne Clarke in January 2013. He is a corporate Partner and his practice focuses on real estate, energy and infrastructure mergers & acquisition and restructuring.

He has been recognised consistently by Chambers and Legal 500 as one of the leading real estate practitioners on the Italian market.

His experience enables him to assist long-term investors effectively in all phases of the investment cycle, from the setting-up of the appropriate investment structures, establishment of joint ventures with co-investors, as well as the acquisition, development, management and sale of assets. He has a deep understanding of technical, regulatory and financial issues relevant to energy, infrastructure and real estate projects and has a pragmatic approach to deal-making.

He believes OC’s team has the expertise, focus on client service and responsiveness to market conditions that make it the ideal reference for both domestic and international clients wishing to do business in Italy.

Prior to joining Osborne Clarke, Simone was one of the founders of the Italian practice of a leading global firm and before that a partner of a domestic market leader. Co-author : The Energy Regulation and Markets Review (Ed. D. Schwartz, 2013 and 2014)
