Fresh momentum and new perspectives

We welcome Lorenzo Togni to our partnership and congratulate Bénédict Thomann on his appointment as counsel.

Lorenzo Togni

My passion is to introduce corporate clients to the world of listed companies, and, once listed, to help them navigate challenges around their financing needs. Against the background of an ever-tightening regulatory framework, a particular focus is on avoiding pitfalls in connection with ongoing disclosure duties.

Lorenzo Togni specializes in equity capital markets, with a practice spanning domestic and U.S. IPOs, rights offerings, block trades, ABB transactions, private placements and PIPEs. He also advises on corporate, stock exchange and securities law. Drawing on the wealth of his deal experience, Lorenzo was named a «Rising Star» in the capital markets field by IFLR1000.

Lorenzo Togni received his Ph.D. from the University of St. Gallen and his LL.M. from Columbia Law School. During the four years prior to joining Homburger, Lorenzo practiced U.S. securities law at a New York-based law firm. He has authored several publications and regularly speaks at conferences on capital markets.
