I am a tax adviser working in the Italian tax department. I specialise in transfer pricing, providing consultancy and assistance to multinational clients in relation to international tax issues.

I have been involved in a number of transfer pricing projects including assistance to clients in supply-chain reorganisation, drafting and implementation of intercompany agreements, drafting of transfer pricing documentation and assistance to clients in litigation against Italian tax authorities.

Over the years, I have developed particular experience in intangible assets valuations. In particular, I have been closely involved in Patent Box projects for clients from IP-rich industries including life sciences and chemicals; appraisals of intangible assets in relation to transactions involving the selling and exchange of intellectual property – both within multinational enterprise groups and between third parties and calculation of infringement damages as a technical expert.

Moreover, taking advantage of the expertise gained in transfer pricing, I have dealt with the determination of appropriate and arm's length royalties for licence agreements.

The firm is one of the world's leading IP law firms and that expertise together with our economic and tax knowledge means we can offer great service and comprehensive assistance to our clients in all IP-related valuations and issues.

Before joining the team here at Bird & Bird, I spent four years working in the tax department of BDO in Milan.

I'm a native Italian speaker and am also fluent in English.
