We ensure our clients understand the transaction and have extensive support in their language and with any aspect of their investment.

I joined Child & Child in 2014 as Head of the Italian Desk and a solicitor in the property department, specialising in residential conveyancing.

Since qualifying as a UK solicitor in 2000, I’ve worked in a number of legal roles in both London and Italy. Consequently, I’m a dual Italian and English qualified lawyer and have experience of acting for a range of clients, advising them on various corporate and commercial matters.

From 2004 to 2010, I was General Counsel for Earls Court & Olympia Limited, where I gained extensive experience in negotiating commercial leases, hire agreements, catering concession agreements, tenancy agreements and entertainment contracts. I also dealt with employment, intellectual property, insurance coverage and data protection issues, including in connection with the sale of the venues to Liberty International.

In 2010, I established Casa Londra Limited, a property consultancy firm working in partnership with Child & Child to offer bespoke services for Italian clients relocating to London or investing in the UK residential property market. This means when they buy a property in London, they not only receive legal assistance, but also the full range of related property services, from refurbishment to management and letting.

I take pride in providing a friendly, approachable service and establishing great relationships with my Italian clients. Offering clear, concise legal advice, I help them to understand the differences between the English and Italian legal systems.
