I graduated at the University of St. Gallen in 1996 and since then I am practising as a lawyer. I was called to the bar in 1999. After a fellowship with the American Institute for Economic Research of Great Barrington (Massachusetts), I have obtained a master degree in banking and finance law at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2000. Thereafter I have worked in the legal department of an important bank in London, and in early 2001 I have been admitted to the roll of solicitors of England and Wales as a solicitor . Back in Switzerland in 2001 I have worked with an important law firm, where I have practiced in commercial, corporate, banking law, regulation of financial markets (banks and investment funds), international judicial assistance and tax information exchange matters.
In these practice areas I provide advice to financial institutions and private clients mainly in civil, criminal and administrative litigation procedures, as well as in commercial transactions, start-ups, mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures.
In my activity fields, I have authored and co-authored several publications, and I regularly lecture at different private and public institutions such as the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) , where I have organized courses in Tax and Finance law. From 2014 to May 31th 2018 I have been appointed Substitute Judge at the Court of Appeals.
I practice as Notary Public: my activity field covers mainly the execution of deeds in Italian, German, English and French, concerning corporate entities, real estate properties (and related authorization procedures) and the release of notarial certifications.
 Currently I am not practising as English solicitor.
