Milan, October 31, 2014 - Pavia e Ansaldo strengthens its international practice with the foundation of its Africa Desk to provide assistance to international institutions and foreign and Italian clients interested in investment projects in the African continent.

The Desk operates in connection with local law firms which are selected according to the experience and the needs of the relevant matters.

The Africa Desk is added to the other Desks of the Firm, dedicated to Germany, Spain, USA, Turkey and Middle East countries - already operative in the Italian offices of Pavia e Ansaldo - and to the foreign offices of Brussels, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Tokyo, through which Pavia e Ansaldo is able to provide high quality legal assistance to Italian clients in those areas.
