PLMJ's Italian Desk has once again been shortlisted for the
TopLegal awards, which are now in their ninth edition. TopLegal is
a leading publication in the Italian legal market and, for the
second year in a row, it is giving awards to the Italian Desks of

markets. We are particularly pleased because we have achieved this
nomination after the Desk has only been present in the market for a
relatively short period of time."
The other firms shortlisted alongside PLMJ are Garrigues,
Schoenherr, Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom, Squire Patton
Boggs and Taylor Wessing.
The jury is made up of recognised specialists from the worlds of
business, finance and government, and it is chaired by a
representative of TopLegal's Research Centre. The awards will
be given out on 23 November at a ceremony in Milan.
