Mediation Profile

I have always been fascinated by conflicts because to me they represent a fundamental part of human nature and society. This fascination and my legal background has led me to study dispute resolution methods, mediation in particular. What being a mediator means to me, is expanding my understanding by encountering the ever-present yet changing nature of conflicts while leveraging my expertise to help others. 

I am an accredited civil and commercial mediator from Rome, Italy. I am currently based out of Bristol, UK, working as a legal assistant.

I graduated with honours in Law from Roma Tre University in 2015. During my studies, I was an Erasmus student at Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, and won a grant from Roma Tre University to perform research at the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law in Luxembourg.

Following my studies, I spent a year in London acquiring more knowledge and skills by undertaking several courses and gaining working experience focused on Private International Law. Returning to Italy, I trained as a lawyer in Rome, focusing on Tort Law and Employment Law.

In parallel, I qualified as a civil and commercial mediator from the National Institute for Mediation and Arbitration in Rome (2015), having taken training and certification courses by leading institutes (Harvard Law School, London School of Economics and Political Science, Pepperdine University, Charles University). I have participated in international mediation competitions as evaluator and mediation session supervisor (Lex Infinitum, ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition, Competizione Italiana di Mediazione).
