I joined ONTIER in 2021 as a Partner to lead the Real Estate department. Over more than 20 years of experience within law firms of primary importance, I have consolidated a deep knowledge of the legal issues and market dynamics related to real estate and construction, working for major domestic and international operators in major transactions and across all asset classes.
Among other matters, I assisted clients in dismissals and acquisitions of real estate portfolios, sale and lease back, developments or regeneration of areas and building complexes, works and service contracts, social housing initiatives, procedures for the dismissal of public buildings, as well as in the privatisation of the economic exploitation of commercial spaces, media & advertising spaces of the main Italian railway stations.
I also developed a specific interest towards the industry of proptech, looking into the legal and business demands of those operators – ranging from startups to bigger players – that integrate technology with real estate in all classes, such as smart real estate, contech, sharing economy and real estate fintech. My field also encompasses matters of corporate and commercial law, corporate governance, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, co-investment agreements and other main business and financial agreements.
I am licensed as a lawyer (avvocato) in Italy and am a member of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), the Global Real Estate Group at the London School of Economics (LSE GREG), the Italian Proptech Network (IPN) and the Associazione Italiana Giuristi Diritto Immobiliare (AGIDI).
My mother tongue is Italian, and I fluently speak English, Spanish and French.
When assisting clients in domestic or international transactions, my hallmark is that I do my best in meeting not only the legal but also, and above all, the business needs of clients. In this, I think that real estate specialists must necessarily master a specific knowledge of the various asset classes, of the market and of its dynamics and trends, along with legal knowledge spanning various fields, such as civil, administrative, corporate, financial, capital markets and tax, etc.
