White & Case Advises DATA4 Group on Landmark Italian Data Centre Deal

Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised DATA4 Group, the European owner, developer and operator of carrier-neutral, multi-tier data centres, on one of the largest commercial data centre agreements to ever be completed in Italy.

The transaction between DATA4, which is backed by privately-held independent global real estate investment company Colony Capital, and a global IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provider is the second data centre on DATA4's Milan campus. It increases the total capacity of that facility to 7.8MW of net IT load.

"This was a very large, important and complex transaction for DATA4, the first for White & Case with this rapidly growing business," said London-based partner James Dodsworth, who led the team which advised DATA4.

"We were delighted with the support and advice that James and his team provided," said Adam Levine, DATA4's Chief Commercial Officer. "They demonstrated throughout the transaction why White & Case is regarded as the leading legal adviser to the global data centre industry."

The White & Case team which advised DATA4 was led by partner James Dodsworth (London) with support from associates James Johnson (London) and Alessandro Seganfreddo (Milan).
