Pietro Minaudo, formerly General Counsel of Percassi for several years in the recent past, has joined Cocuzza & Associati, Milan office, as of Counsel.

For Minaudo, this is a return to the private practice after a 20-year in-house career: 7 years as Head of Corporate & Legal Europe at Autogrill; 3 years in the role of General Counsel at SAES Getters S.p.A. and then 9 years within the Percassi Group coordinating all the Group’s legal, corporate and compliance activities. In this role, Minaudo was involved in a vast number of transactions: from the expansion of a hugely successful network such as KIKO MILANO, to the drafting of partnership and franchising agreements with prestigious world-renowned retail brands including Nike, Lego, Strarbucks, Victoria’s Secret, Gucci, YSL; to the management of commercial, retail real estate, joint venture, M&A, protection, management and transfer of trademarks and IP rights contracts; and to commercial consulting and sports law aspects of the Atalanta football team.

For Cocuzza & Associati this is another step of growth in the legal market, particularly in the retail real estate sector. Thanks to his experience, Pietro Minaudo brings to the firm a business-oriented vision, able to understand the concrete needs of clients as well as a General Counsel approach, uncommon in law firms.
