    • My training path as a criminal lawyer unfolds through either domestic or comparative and international law, through both academic and professional experiences. Among the former, following the graduation in Law at the University of Turin with a comparative thesis on the issue of mental capacity in Civil Law and Common Law systems, I completed a Master of Laws (LL.M) at the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute with a final thesis on the comparative criminal procedure, postgraduate courses at the Academy of Public and Private International Law of The Hague and made research as Assistant Professor at Turin University for the International Law and International Organisations course. I qualified as a Lawyer and became a member of Turin Bar Association in 2009. In 2014 I qualified as Solicitor for the Senior Courts of England and Wales and therefore I became a member of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and of the Law Society of London. Among professional experiences in 2007 I had the unique opportunity to take active part to the trial of the Khmer Rouge regime leaders ongoing before the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, being a member of the Co-Prosecutors’Office at the UNAKRT (United Nations Assistance to Khmer Rouge Trial). The year after I became a counsel for the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) in Turin. After several enriching international experiences I settled in Turin, where I work as a qualified lawyer. I am associate to the law firm VBSM_Vinai-Bonatti-Sattanino-Maldera, dealing mainly with criminal law and company law with the consequent international implications (I am also a member of PEOPIL – Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers). I therefore also work on damage compensation issues for personal injuries and the protection of the compensatory interests of victims of major trauma, road traffic accidents, workplace accidents, occupational diseases and medical malpractice either from a compensatory or from a criminal point of view.

General Litigation

Who is this Service for?

At it's root, litigation involves the assertion of - or alternatively, the defence of - certain rights or obligations as between two parties. It covers a wide spectrum of situations involving individuals, companies and often both, where customers are involved. 

It can be difficult to know whether any particular claim would be valid and whether it is likely to be successful - two different things entirely.  In general,  a claim may arise where loss, damage or injury has been suffered as a result of an action – or failure to act – by another party (individual, company, local authority etc.) who has a responsibility - either in contract or in law - towards the party who has suffered the loss, damage or injury.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial assessment by a specialist lawyer of the circumstances of the case to determine if the defendant has a responsibility towards the plaintiff such that a legal claim may be made
  • Undertake negotiations with the other party and/or their legal representatives
  • Agree an amicable resolution with or without the payment of damages or initiate/defend legal proceedings
