Working as counsel in our Corporate Group in Milan, I advise private and public clients on a wide range of corporate, corporate governance and M&A issues. I also assist shareholders, directors and companies in corporate disputes.
I have consolidated corporate experience in a range of contentious and non-contentious corporate matters, assisting domestic and foreign clients operating in different markets (medical, chemical, consumer products, foods, services, banks and insurance companies). In the context of non-contentious matters, I provide legal advice and assistance to private companies in relation to all aspects of their daily operations (such as incorporation of the company; corporate governance matters, winding-up of the company) and in some transactions, helping clients in their transition and growth. In particular, I assist clients in M&A transactions (both on the selling and buying side), sales and acquisition of business concern, merger, demerger and other corporate complex events. In relation to contentious matters (also before arbitral panels), I assist shareholders, directors and companies in complex corporate disputes concerning the validity of shareholders' resolutions, directors' liability, exercise of shareholders' rights, withdrawal and exclusion of shareholders.
Clients appreciate my solid and straightforward approach and my timely and business-oriented response that helps them to successfully reach their goals.
Before joining Bird & Bird in 2008, I worked for a top tier Italian law firm based in Milan, specialising in corporate law and M&A transactions, advising clients on both transactional and litigation matters.
I'm a native Italian speaker and am fluent in both English and French.
In recent years I have published articles in several Italian corporate law reviews and books on several topics, including corporate governance, takeover bids and voting rights. I also serve as editor at 'Rivista delle società' and lecture in corporate law at Università Bocconi in Milan.
