Edoardo is a Legal Director in the Saudi Arabia Corporate group, based in our office in Riyadh and most recently leading the establishment of our new office in Al-Khobar. Prior to moving to Saudi Arabia in 2013, Edoardo spent more than a year with DLA Piper in Kuwait. He has also worked at top-tier law firms in both London and Milan.

A dual qualified English and Italian lawyer, Edoardo has experience in civil, common and Shari'a law, providing him with an ability to recognise and deal with the nuances of multi-jurisdictional transactions.

His practice covers most aspects of mainstream corporate and commercial law, with a particular focus on M&A (buy and sell side), venture capital and private equity deals, joint-ventures, corporate restructurings and commercial agreements, often with a cross-border element. He also regularly works with foreign and Saudi EPC contractors or sub-contracting companies on large infrastructure projects in Saudi Arabia.

Additionally, Edoardo has spent time inhouse as the EMEA Senior Legal Counsel for a listed multinational company and, therefore, has an invaluable understanding of how companies are typically run. In 2016, Edoardo was named one of the 50 most influential Italians in the Gulf by MilanzaFinanza for the second consecutive year.
