She is head of our Italian M&A practice and leads cross-border teams supporting clients in M&A, strategic alliances, reorganizations and first-mover projects, with a consolidated track record in regulated sectors such as Energy and Natural Resources, Infrastructure, Diversified Industrials, Consumer and Financial Institutions.

Leah is ranked as a Leading Individual in Corporate/M&A by Chambers Global 2015 which describe her as “sensitive to the Italian viewpoint, and able to put it in an international context”.
