Gibney Expands Business Practice with New Partner Danila Duo
Gibney is pleased to announce the expansion of its domestic and international Business Practice with the addition of a new partner. Danila Duo joins the firm’s New York office to expand Gibney’s international practice.
Danila’s practice focuses on corporate law with an emphasis on commercial and corporate cross-border transactions, including mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. She also provides general legal support to Italian and international companies seeking to enter or expand their presence in the US and to US clients investing in Italy and worldwide.
Corporate work has been a cornerstone of Gibney throughout its history. Having represented entrepreneurs and start-up businesses for decades, Gibney has formed the US subsidiaries of some of the world’s largest and most recognizable companies, guiding them from emerging businesses through their growth into international prominence and serving as their outside general counsel.
“We are excited to have Danila join Gibney” said Robert Okulski, Gibney’s managing partner. “With almost two decades of combined law firm and in-house experience between the United States and Italy, Danila has a unique business approach to the practice of law that perfectly aligns with our vision. As we expand our global reach, Danila will be a key asset in the expansion of our international practice, which will create a natural synergy with our Emerging Business Practice.
“I couldn’t think of a better platform for my international clients,” said Danila. “For most of them, the old legal model is outdated and I’m excited about Gibney’s business-friendly approach that allows effective partnership and integration with our clients and their in-house legal teams.”
