Varied perspectives help us to build constructive working relationships.
Giordano is a managing associate in the corporate team in London. He advises on a broad range of corporate transactions for both UK and international clients, including private acquisitions and disposals, business start-ups, management buy-outs, joint ventures, fund raising and financing arrangements, both debt and equity. He also acts for clients and lenders on restructuring and refinancing work.
Giordano graduated from King’s College London and qualified into the firm’s corporate team in 2003. He gained experience of working in-house as AllSaints’ first lawyer and head of legal between 2014 and 2018, advising the retail group on all legal and commercial affairs globally. The generalist nature of his role has given him a practical knowledge of different aspects of business and enabled him to identify issues in transactions beyond those which are purely corporate in nature. With experience of being both a ‘consumer’ and ‘provider’ of legal services, he has a unique perspective on what clients want from their legal advisers and he tailors his advice to be commercially focused and easily digestible. He is valued for his ability to explain complex issues clearly and concisely so that clients can make informed and risk-based decisions.
A fluent Italian speaker, Giordano has spent several months seconded to two Italian law firms. He is also a member of the British Italian Law Association and regularly attends events run by the International Association of Young Lawyers (IAJA).
