Our Banking & Finance department is one of the market leaders thanks to a very experienced team. We have the right lawyers in place for our clients' needs with the high professional standards required to meet those needs.With extensive experience in the banking and financial services sectors, I provide advice on regulatory matters to our clients in banking and financial matters, including assistance in administrative sanctions procedures carried out by Supervisory Authorities. Over the years, I have developed particular experience in MiFID and MAR issues.Before joining Bird & Bird, I was Senior Vice President at UniCredit S.p.A for over ten years, covering key leadership positions in the bank's compliance function, and appointed co-head of the Global Regulatory Counsel Department in the last two years. This allowed me to deal with day-to-day compliance issues that the group companies faced in several fields at international level.I also worked in the National Commission for Companies and the Stock Exchange (CONSOB) for more than 11 years, initially in the inspectorate office and then in the intermediaries supervisory office. I also held important positions in the European and International Authorities as a member of FESCO (which then became CERS and now ESMA) and of the Intermediaries Group IOSCO.The combination of 'private' and 'public' experience has enabled me to develop substantial expertise and experience on market trends and at the same time a significant institutional knowledge to better meet our clients' needs and to better understand the 'watchdogs'. It allows me to approach any issue properly and to make maximum use of my previous experience, providing good advice in the implementation of EU/national laws in the internal regulations of banking and financial companies.I try to be innovative and collaborative in order to suggest the right solutions or to develop innovative ways to meet the needs of the clients in compliance with the applicable law. I am strongly committed to achieving the best result for the clients efficiently. This allows me to have an effective client relationship that lasts long after the end of each assignment.
