About Us




Private Equity industry, called “PE” in English and “投资” in Chinese, is a practice area where we ease your operations on fiscal and legal basis. Our team is fresh and innovative, transparent and manage all its resources under a leadership active, pro-active, trustworthy and well recognized by both clients and associates. We manage all information with privacy, discretion and with a full comprehension of client objections. Namely, we criticize our theories and conjectures about the outcomes of every operation, with a special attention to the refutations, which come from the truth of a deal. Our method is a constant comparison of virtual data on persons (managers, partners, bankers) with real information and details (we privilege face-face meetings, direct talking and briefing, after the virtual due diligence in our data rooms). Our experience includes private equity funds, management of teams, of equity co-investors and of relationship with senior and subordinated lenders.

SMAF & Associates (seats in Milan, Rome and Bologna) advises private equity funds on the acquisition and disposal of companies, as well as on any legal issues that arise during ownership of a company.
