‘On time delivery and result-driven’

‘Simona Lavagnini is a go-to lawyer in Italy for copyright matters. She has very solid industry knowledge and is very attuned to the priorities and objectives of her clients. Her advice is cutting edge as well as clear and practical. She also gets involved in the technical and logistical aspects of preparing a case, which can be quite complex in piracy cases.’
