Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Practice and Global Private Equity Industry Group with the addition of Domenico Fanuele as a partner.

"The addition of a leading M&A and private equity partner in Italy will support the development of our internationally focused M&A practice in Europe and globally," said White & Case partner John Reiss, Head of the Firm's Global M&A Practice. "Domenico will add bench strength and experience that will make us even better positioned to advise our global clients on their high-end, complex and cross-border M&A transactions."

Domenico advises investment banks, corporates, private equity and real estate funds on private and public M&A, capital markets transactions and strategic joint ventures. He is dual qualified to practice in both Italy and New York. Domenico brings more than 25 years of experience and joins White & Case from Studio Legale Associato Shearman & Sterling, where he was a partner and head of the Rome and Milan offices and the Italian corporate practice.

"Domenico is well known and respected in the Italian market as a board level trusted adviser who has advised on some of the most significant M&A and private equity deals involving Italian companies and investors," said Michael Immordino, White & Case Office Executive Partner in Milan. “His considerable international experience and global contacts make him a great addition to the Firm and his specialization in real estate transactions complements the expertise of our Italian practice in private equity and M&A."

White & Case partner and Vice Chair Oliver Brettle said: "Domenico's experience and profile further strengthen both our Global M&A Practice and a number of our key industry groups, notably private equity, real estate, financial institutions and infrastructure, transportation and logistics. His arrival follows the addition of a number of high-profile lateral M&A and private equity partners across our offices in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific as we continue to invest in this priority practice."
