LUIGI IOVANE DE PUY

Luigi focuses his practice in corporate and estate planning matters, as well as in national and international arbitration.

As an active member of FABREGA MOLINO’s Estate Planning and Corporate Practice Areas, he advises private and corporate clients in various matters.

Luigi has experience in shareholder and corporate disputes, especially in family-owned companies. Thanks to his experience in this type of conflicts, he understands that disputes in family-owned companies require a different approach compared to general shareholder disputes.

He regularly advises local and international clients, family businesses and groups, and law firms on a variety of matters, including challenge of sanctions, general civil proceedings, commercial matters, and dispute resolution for family businesses, including the drafting of contracts and wills.

Luigi is able to provide efficient advice due to his experience setting up and managing complex corporate structures that include corporations, limited liability companies and private interest foundations. He has also participated in the closing of important mergers and acquisitions transactions, as well as in complicated corporate restructurings.
