Sonnenschein Expands Los Angeles Office with Addition of Duccio Mortillaro

March 17, 2010 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES — Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP announced today that Duccio Mortillaro has joined the law firm as counsel in its Public Law & Policy Strategies practice. Mortillaro will reside in Sonnenschein's Los Angeles office.

"Duccio is an outstanding lawyer with an international client base who will have an immediate impact at Sonnenschein," said Darry Sragow, managing partner of the Los Angeles office. "His experience representing overseas investors and foreign multinational companies in the United States is a wonderful fit with our existing capabilities here in Los Angeles and throughout the firm."

Mortillaro's cross-border practice focuses on representing foreign investors, mainly from Italy and other European countries, in the United States and U.S. interests in Europe and Latin America in all aspects of corporate and commercial law, from entity formation to shareholders' agreements to joint ventures, licensing and acquisitions. By managing the legal issues associated with the U.S. operations of several European companies, he acts, in effect, as their general counsel.

"Sonnenschein has such a fantastic reputation in public policy, an area of growing interest for my international clients, and such broad-based transactional coverage that I knew this would be the perfect place to foster and expand my practice," said Mortillaro. "The breadth of expertise throughout the firm, its innovative approach to adding value to clients' businesses while solving their legal issues, and its focus on inter-office cooperation is something from which my clients will definitely benefit."

Mortillaro joins Sonnenschein from Ropers Majeski Kohn & Bentley PC, where he was of counsel. He earned a law degree from the University of Milan School of Law in Italy and a J.D. degree from the University of Miami School of Law. He also holds an LL.M. degree from UCLA School of Law.

With more than 700 lawyers and other professionals in 13 offices in the United States and Europe, and a global reach throughout the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, Sonnenschein serves the legal and public interest needs of many of the world's best-known and most admired businesses, nonprofits and individuals. Founded in 1906, Sonnenschein is a leader in innovative legal services, serving our clients through integrated, inter-office cooperation and teamwork among practice groups to provide efficient, effective and timely legal services and business counseling.
