As a Counsel in our Tech & Comms Group in Milan, I have extensive experience of drafting and negotiating outsourcing and IT agreements for national and international companies.
I work with our clients on cloud computing agreements, software development and distribution agreements, outsourcing and further IT agreements, automotive sector agreements, ecommerce, patent and trade secrets licensing, consumer law, copyright licensing, assignment of TV rights and distribution, media services, works production, advertising and sponsorship rights in television and various sports, and electronic publishing.
I advise clients on artificial intelligence, internet of things, blockchain and smart contracts, electronic signatures and other trust services. I also deal with a wide range of commercial contracts.
I have lectured on software agreements at Bocconi University in Milan and at the Sole 24 Ore Masters Programme; on ecommerce, digital signatures and internet copyright issues at the Luiss University of Rome; and on data processing in public administration at the International Institute of Research in Milano. I have also published several articles on IT and IP issues.
Before joining the team at Bird & Bird, I worked for a large Italian law firm and for a boutique IP firm in Milan, dealing with issues in IP, IT, advertising, sport and privacy. I am fluent in Italian, English, and French.
