TESTIMONIAL: Stefano Brogelli - Legal and Compliance Director

Marco Pistis used to be my colleague at a law firm before I became in-house counsel. Therefore, I have had the possibility to field-test his abilities. He has been advising our company for many years and after all this time I still appreciate his aptitude to understand the issues that characterize complex contexts and to make them as simple as possible. I have a the deepest appreciation for his relational skills, empathy and capacity to interact in an international environment.

TESTIMONIAL:Gianluca Meschi - Chairman and CEO

MarcoPistis advised us for more than 10 years in relation to both judicial disputes and contractual issues. These two aspects appear to be very distant from each other. In spite of this, Marco is able to conjugate and manage them together as to produce a virtuous synergy. I particularly appreciate his ability to anticipate the possible issues that may arise from a contract, which derives from his extensive experience in litigation.
