Lucantonio N. Salvi has joined the Washington, D.C. office of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP. Salvi, most recently with Latham & Watkins in Washington, D.C., joins as a partner in the firm's Corporate practice group.

Salvi practices in the areas of corporate law, corporate finance, securities law and mergers and acquisitions. He represents companies, investment banks, and private equity firms in corporate and transactional matters, including venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and public and private securities offerings.

Salvi represents both public and private sector clients in the United States and abroad, with a practice specialization that includes cross-border transactions involving Italian companies. He is a member of the International Law & Practice Section of the American Bar Association.

"Luca's skills and experience will be important in expanding our East Coast transactional practice," said Guy Halgren, managing partner of the firm. "As the globalization of business deals continues to evolve, his sophisticated international corporate expertise brings tremendous value to the firm's clients."

"Sheppard Mullin's Corporate practice group had a strong year in 2005,” Salvi said. "I'm excited to join my new colleagues in this successful practice area and look forward to building the D.C. transactional group with Ed Schiff."

"We are delighted to welcome Luca to the D.C. office, at a time of significant expansion," said Edward Schiff, managing partner of the firm's Washington, D.C. office. "His diverse specialization, in-depth market knowledge and industry relationships are an excellent fit for us, given the corporate and M&A matters which we handle."

Salvi earned his law degree from Georgetown University in 1995 and graduated from Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, with an MALD in 1994.
