    Luca joins from Clifford Chance where he worked for 11 years in the Milan and London offices. Luca’s broad-based finance practice covers real estate finance, acquisition finance, corporate lending, and private debt. He has extensive experience advising lenders and borrowers on sophisticated and innovative financing transactions, often with a multi-jurisdictional element.

    “We are thrilled to welcome Luca to the team,” Mario Lisanti, partner and head of Ashurst’s Italian banking team said. “His arrival will consolidate our market leading position in all major product lines that the firm covers, both lender and borrower side, and his expertise in real estate finance, acquisition finance, corporate lending, and private debt will be a valuable contribution to our offering.”

    Luca's appointment follows that of Beatrice Melito who joined the firm as an associate from Freshfields, as well as a number of other hires within the team.
