Emanuela is an Italian lawyer based in our Shanghai office, where she assists Italian clients in designing and implementing IPRs enforcement strategies in China and SE Asia.

She has also worked as a visiting lawyer in several firms in Europe, specialising in IP and entertainment law, including Bardehle Pagenberg (Munich), CMS Hasche Siegle (Munich), Schwarz Kelwing Wicke Westpfahl (Munich), Fenton Hills (London), Bitoun, Verrecchia & Galvez (Paris).
