About

I am a quadrilingual (Italian, English, French and Spanish)  attorney working at Whitecotton Law Corporation (whitecottonlaw.com), specialized in advising clients operating in several industries in being compliant with Anti- Bribery and Corruption laws (e.g. US FCPA, UK Anti-Bribery Act, Sapin II).

I also lead internal investigations and foreign discovery in more than 100 countries dealing with Regulators and Law Enforcement Agencies (DOJ, SEC, SFP, OFAC).

A relevant part of my professional activity is  focused on Anti Money Laundering, particularly in light of the EU AML scenario, and on Sanctions matters.
