Lucia Antonazzi

Associate


I work as an associate in our Competition and European Union Law department in Rome, where I deal with Technology and Communications, assisting our national and international clients in EU and competition law matters, supporting companies in their business activities and assisting them in proceedings relating to abuse of dominant position and agreements restrictive of competition before the Antitrust Authority. I am often involved in comprehensive and structured antitrust audit and compliance programmes with Italian and international clients.

I have acquired deep knowledge of market dynamics and protection of the rights involved, thanks to attending in depth training courses held by the main European study and research centres.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked with major Italian law firms assisting companies in disputes relating to commercial and distribution agreements as well as in matters of unfair trade practices and consumer protection.

I am the author of publications on EU Law, Civil Law and Market Regulation.
