I have acquired significant experience in VAT and indirect tax legislation as I have focused on these matters since the beginning of my career. Before joining Bird & Bird, I had the chance to work as external VAT consultant for a 'Big Four' tax firm and have also been employed as (internal) Southern Europe VAT manager for one of the world's biggest multinational companies.Having worked in a variety of different industries over the years, I have developed particular expertise in the smooth solution of complex indirect tax issues and advised international groups across a broad range of sectors (medical & healthcare, oil & gas, power & water, energy, industrial solutions). In my present role, with the great support of our Italian and international Bird & Bird tax team, I continue supporting clients on VAT issues and dealing with the authorities during tax audits. We customise our work to our clients' needs and we assist our clients by leveraging our team members who are specialised in VAT and indirect taxes. Consequently, we can offer a wide range of services regarding VAT related topics, which include both advisory and compliance fulfillments, and ensure the best approach and accuracy.
