Carlo Pontei

Senior Associate

Carlo's expertise extends in more than one direction; he advises private and commercial clients on issues of complex cross-border litigation and represents claimants and defendants in all jurisdictions on civil and commercial matters.

Carlo is a highly regarded corporate and commercial lawyer advising companies involved in cross-border transactions in both contentious and non-contentious matters. Carlo will always attempt to resolve commercial disputes at an early stage and regularly appears at mediation and arbitration hearings, both in Italy and overseas. However, if a resolution cannot be achieved he is a determined and robust litigator.

Carlo's expertise extends from insolvency law, debt restructuring, international contracts, M & A transactions and company set-up. He has wealth of experience in the field of cross-border corporate and commercial law between Italy and the UK.

He has participated in many M&A transactions and provides recurring advice on corporate, commercial and contractual matters to a wide range of clients, having gained a broad understanding of commercial transactions as a whole, while consolidating his expertise in the cross-border corporate and commercial industry in Italy and the UK.

The internationalisation of businesses is also an area in which Carlo has gained a wealth of experience in the past few years advising entrepreneurs and SMEs expanding their business in other European and non-European countries.
