Curtis Opens New Office in Rome

Rome, Italy, November 10, 2014 — Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP (“Curtis”) has announced the opening of the newest Curtis office in Rome, Italy. Rome becomes the 17th member of international law firm's family.

Curtis' chairman, George Kahale III, noted that “the needs of our clients in our growing Italian operations require that we have a strong presence in Rome in addition to Milan. We are pleased to meet that challenge with the addition of two distinguished Italian practitioners who will anchor the office and provide a base for additional growth.”

The new partners are Alfonso de Marco and Sergio Esposito Farber. They will soon be joined by other lawyers who will be assigned to Curtis Rome.

Mr. de Marco and Mr. Esposito Farber bring to Curtis extensive experience in banking & finance and real estate. They have built a solid reputation by representing the interests of international investors and sovereign wealth funds in Italian markets, especially in banking and real estate.

Mr. de Marco represents leading Italian and international banks and financial institutions in complex banking and real estate transactions. He has been recognized in prominent legal directories such as Legal 500, PLC and IFLR.

Mr. Esposito Farber is also widely recognized as a leading real estate practitioner for his work in the acquisition, development and disposition of properties by national and multinational corporations, as well as large investment funds.
