Me in a minute

My love for words and verbal reasoning is likely what brought me to study law.

At law school I developed a particular interest in international law and dispute settlement. I spent many afternoons in the tiny but well-stocked international law library of Padua University, although I did not neglect contract law, civil procedure and other areas of the law. As a young Italian law graduate, I dreamt about specialising in international dispute settlement (which was quite a big dream).

I joined Withers' Italian offices as a trainee in August 2016. I completed my training at Withers Italy and continued to work there as a newly qualified lawyer until August 2019. Training and working with the firm provided with invaluable experience and I met excellent mentors and colleagues.
