I am a Senior Legal Counsel (Italian law-qualified) with 12 years of international working experience in Europe, the Middle East and Asia for major oil&gas companies. I am currently responsible for all commercial contract management activities for floating production systems and LNG product line at Saipem. Through my projects as well as head-office experience in Italy, France, UK, UAE and Singapore I have dealt with legal and contract management matters governed by Civil Law, Common Law, Commercial and International Contracts Law including domestic and international supply chain operations for engineering, procurement and construction projects. What have I learnt from the projects I have been working for? Always explore contractual solutions to minimize risks and maximize opportunities!
