“Lexia combines the best of both worlds: necessary longstanding values and deep knowledge of legal matters together with a very dynamic pragmatic and international approach of work. This very rare mixture makes it unique in comparison with other M&A firms in Milan.”
“Very good language skills apart from the high legal standards. High level of values; fair and collegial behaviour but insist on the important issues. The work is business focused. I love working with the team around Francesco Dagnino.”
