I am an Italian attorney with a broad international experience and run my own law firm in Rome. I graduated from the Law School of the Rome University "La Sapienza" in 1988. Then I spent two years in the United States. Between 1989 and 1990, I attended Yale law School as a visiting scholar and performed research on US Torts for the Italian "Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche”. In 1991, I received an LLM degree from the University of Michigan Law School, where I studied US and EU law and wrote a thesis on International Antitrust. I started my carrier as an attorney as a trainee in the European Commission's directorate in charge of antitrust/competition matters. I spent four years in Brussels and worked in a leading Belgian international trade law firm and a leading US international and antitrust/competition law firm. I moved to the Rome office of this US law firm and then worked in another leading US international law firm before opening my own firm in 2008. I lecture at various Italian and foreign institutions, including two universities in Chicago, namely IT Kent College of Law and Loyola University School of Law of Chicago.
