Milan partner Jeffrey Lawlis has earned recognition as Debt Capital Markets Lawyer of the Year at the 2020 LegalCommunity Finance Awards. He advises a mix of companies, sponsors, and investment banks on a range of public and private cross-border transactions, with a focus on the Italian, Spanish, and Greek markets. The publication noted that Lawlis has “raised the bar” through the “impressive quality and quantity” of his work. LegalCommunity added that he is “highly respected by peers and clients,” and “is considered one of the top players in the sector.”
Now in its seventh year, the LegalCommunity Finance Awards selects honorees based on various criteria, including the volume and value of successfully executed transactions, legal and technical negotiation skills, business knowledge, and commitment to client service.
