Global law firm Ashurst has assisted the Legal department of Generali Investments Partners with setting up a Spanish branch

Generali Investments Partners is a multi-channel and multi-customer hub company responsible for clients relations for the entire offer of Generali boutiques.

The Ashurst cross border team was coordinated by Italian Tax partner Michele Milanese supported by associate Federico Squarcia. The Spanish-based team was led by partner Eduardo Gracia (pictured top left), assisted by counsel Jorge Ramírez (pictured bottom left) for Spanish Tax aspects; partner Jorge Vázquez (pictured top centre), senior associate Tannia Rodriguez (pictured bottom centre) and junior associate Cristina Lopez-Canos for Spanish Corporate Law aspects; senior associate Cristina Grande (pictured top right) for Spanish Employment Law aspects and counsel Josefina Garcia (pictured bottom right) for Spanish Regulatory and Anti-money Laundering aspects.

FIVELEX Studio Legale e Tributario advised on the Italian regulatory aspects with a team composed of managing partner Francesco Di Carlo and salary partner Flavio Acerbi.

The Spanish branch follows the recent opening of a new branch in Germany, where global law firm Ashurst advised Generali Investments Partners in relation to the Italian and German Tax aspects.
