About Me

My practice is intellectual property, particularly the protection and exploitation of innovation and information.

This led me to develop a passion and solid experience in protecting trade secrets. I provide legal and strategic advice to companies that want to protect and enhance their know-how.

Among the projects I have handled in this area, I like to mention the creation of a package of services for the identification and protection of secrets with the increasing support of technology and artificial intelligence.

My first and most significant area of specialisation remains patent litigation, especially in the areas of electronics, telecommunications (including so-called Standard Essential Patents) and life sciences (medical devices and pharmaceuticals).

I also assist several clients in the management and defense of their trademark and design portfolios.

I am a member of several associations of lawyers specialising in intellectual property: EPLAW, LES Italy and Camera Avvocati Industrialisti.

I have authored publications related to trade secrets and regularly attend seminars and conferences on the subject.

I helped create the NEXT® project, a training program focused on soft skills dedicated to the next generation of general counsels.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2007 as an intern and was promoted to partner in 2021.
