I'm a corporate crime, compliance & investigations lawyer, registered with the Milan Bar Council, consulting corporations on legal & compliance issues, corporate governance, global frauds and risks. I began my career with the Arma dei Carabinieri (Italian law enforcement agency) where for many years I handled complex investigations aimed at combating serious crimes, including transnational crimes. I continued my professional career in the business environment, first in the chemical sector and then in luxury goods where I dealt with a wide range of legal issues as well as international investigations mainly focused on non compliance issues, bribery and corruption, industrial espionage and unfair competition.
I also dealt with anti-fraud and anti-counterfeiting activities aimed at protecting intellectual property and information assets, holding roles of increasing responsibility all the way to directing, on a worldwide level, the Legal and Corporate Affairs, Compliance, Security & Crisis departments of a well-known multinational luxury company. Since 2010 I’ve been an Adjunct Professor of Corporate Governance at the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan, teaching initially"Criminal Law of the new technologies", then "Comparative criminal law of corporate trade secrets and personal data protection" and currently "Data Protection Law & Corporate Governance". Since March 2019 I’ve been working with TRANSCRIME - a joint research centre on transnational crimes (above all financial and organised crimes) of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan, the Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna and the Università degli Studi di Perugia - as Legal, Ethics & Compliance Advisor.
