My practice mainly focuses on white collar crime matters and international criminal law, representing in contentious cases and advise (also in preventive perspectives) top managers (both Italian and foreign individuals) involved in white collar crime matters mainly concerning allegations of tax evasion, bribery and corruption, fraud and bankruptcy. Over the years, I carried out the same defense activities on behalf of Italian and multi-national companies involved in corporate criminal liability matters.

I gained experience in managing criminal proceedings characterized by complex international elements, daily cooperation with qualified International Law Firms and analysis of complex issues concerning mutual legal assistance in criminal matters (ie. acquisition of evidence abroad and procedures in order to appeal orders of seizure related to assets located in foreign jurisdictions).

I have gained considerable experience in conducting internal investigations for Italian and multi-national corporations (also listed in foreign stock exchanges), and advices on behalf of top managers and in-house counsel for the disclosure of potential unlawful acts, committed by their managers and/or employees, before the Italian authorities, in cooperation also with Supervisory Boards, main advisory companies and compliance experts.

 I have aslo gained considerable experience in International Criminal Law matters; representation and drafting advices on behalf of States  (extraditions, advices on jurisdiction issues, civil and criminal immunities, etc.), individuals (extraditions) and multi-national corporations (International and European economic sanctions).

 I have been a member of the International Bar Association (IBA) and European Bar Association (ECBA) since 2009. I regularly attend conferences and seminars, in Italy and abroad, on the subject of White Collar Crime, Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters and Extradition. 

I obtained a law degree from the State University of Milan with absolute full marks in April 2008, and was admitted to the Bar in 2012.
