The Italian legal magazine LegalCommunity has named corporate partner Maria Cristina Storchi among Italy’s leading women lawyers for 2016–2017. LegalCommunity noted her contributions to a range of significant Italian transactions, including: the Italian toll road operator Atlantia’s financing of a voluntary tender offer that facilitated its acquisition of Abertis; Sienna Pharmaceuticals’ acquisition of Creabilis; and Meridiana Fly’s sale of a 49% stake in Qatar Airways. In addition to M&A and financing deals, Storchi has recently handled large Italian and cross-border restructuring transactions.
Every year, LegalCommunity recognizes exemplary Italian women lawyers who have impacted the legal profession. Specifically, the honorees have demonstrated their ability to “lead teams to success” while “building strategic relationships” and focusing on “gender diversity issues,” according to the publication.
