Milan – July 6, 2020 Greenberg Traurig Santa Maria celebrated its first anniversary on July 1, 2020, marking a successful year since the global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP and the historic Italian boutique firm Santa Maria Studio Legale Associato combined as one firm in Milan.

"During this first year of union, we have greatly appreciated the significant talent of Greenberg Traurig Santa Maria's professionals as they evolved their business model from a national law boutique to an Italian strategic asset in our global legal services network,” said Richard Rosenbaum, executive chairman of Greenberg Traurig. “Our shared values of providing exemplary client service and ‘built for change’ flexibility have particularly contributed to our mutual success during these challenging times worldwide, and we look forward to a strong future as one firm.” 

Greenberg Traurig’s Italian office, which opened as the firm’s 40th office and its fifth in Europe, provides highly-experienced legal professionals skilled in various areas of European Union law, contracts and international litigation, M&A, and corporate and financial law. Together with offices in Amsterdam, Berlin, London, and Warsaw, Greenberg Traurig has 350 European lawyers. The combination of the two firms in Milan has enabled the firm to provide Italian clients with increasingly advanced, international legal assistance, leveraging the strength of Greenberg Traurig’s global platform.

Over the past year, Greenberg Traurig Santa Maria added new shareholders, Marzio Longo and Corrado Angelelli, together with their teams, consolidating the strength of Greenberg Traurig Santa Maria in domestic and international markets, in the fields of real estate law and banking and financial law.

“One year later we confirm the success of the spirit and principles of our choice to become Greenberg Traurig Santa Maria – part of the prestigious Greenberg Traurig LLP global platform,” said Luigi Santa Maria, co-managing partner of Greenberg Traurig Santa Maria. “This anniversary is a celebration of our being part of a network that allows us to provide excellence in legal services wherever and whenever clients need us worldwide.”
