As Managing Director, Federica Pietrogrande has both a business and legal role.
Federica is a member of the Investment & Finance team with a focus on the development of Gordon Brothers’ special situations strategy across Europe, which utilises a highly flexible and opportunistic approach for alternative debt and equity investments, involving companies in distress or in need of capital solutions. Federica’s focus is on structuring the deal and is committed to the entire lifecycle of the investment from origination through exit.
Federica also manages Gordon Brothers’ legal strategy in Europe – and supports the international business. She works with the business divisions, across all jurisdictions, to structure and manage deals, addressing specific legal issues, qualifying, quantifying and mitigating the relevant risks involved.
Before joining Gordon Brothers in early 2018, Federica practiced law for 15 years in major international law firms in Italy and abroad, specialising in corporate bankruptcy and restructuring, with a focus on distressed investing and cross-border transactions. She now brings her experience to unlock opportunities in different jurisdictions.
Federica has a law degree from Rome Universita’ La Sapienza and an LL.M in Banking, Corporate and Finance from New York Fordham Law School. She is also a member of the International Insolvency Institute.
Federica is a native Italian speaker and fluent in English.
