I am a senior associate in the Banking & Finance Group based in Rome. I am an experienced lawyer who has been involved in several market firsts, both in the energy and the infrastructure sectors.

I specialise in banking & finance and project finance law, with a particular focus on the renewable energy and infrastructure sectors.

I have worked extensively on high-profile national and cross-border project finance, advising both major investment banks and major players in financing and project documentation.

I have been involved in several market firsts both in the energy and in the infrastructure field.

My area of expertise also includes company acquisitions, where I am involved in the drafting and negotiation of quota purchase agreements.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked at leading international and national law firms.
