Giovanni joined Osborne Clarke in 2000, and from the outset has been involved in corporate and commercial law and litigation, with particular emphasis on corporate litigation and arbitration.

In 2003 he was closely involved in the start-up and launch of the new offices in Brescia, where he still passes about half of his working time, the rest of his time being spent in OC’s Milan office.

He acts for domestic and foreign (especially French) clients, advising both on extraordinary transactions and on general commercial issues and specialised litigation matters.

He has developed particular expertise in advising publically owned companies (multi-utility) operating in the Waste, Water and Energy (gas and renewables) sectors. Co-author : The Energy Regulation and Markets Review (Ed. D. Schwartz, 2013 and 2014)
