Continuing the process of development and growth undertaken for the past 10 years, Studio Legale Padovan’s Trade Compliance and International Economic Sanctions team has recently welcomed several experts with proven experience. Our new team members strengthen the talents already present in our practice and, at the same time, explore new skills, enabling us to offer our clients a well-rounded suite of services in the field of export control, international economic sanctions and customs regulations.

Stefano Consoli, based at the Rome headquarters of the Studio Legale Padovan, mainly deals with UAMA authorization procedures and matters relating to military equipment. Nicolò Cusimano has an in-depth knowledge of customs law and international trade; his expertise strengthens and consolidates our firm’s practice of customs law. Giulia Socci specializes in the sectors of export control and armament materials. Philippe Zamboni di Salerano specializes in crafting internal compliance processes. Rebecca Grigolli completes the new additions to the team, joining lawyers Francesco Candeago, head of the Financial Institutions desk, Lorenzo Caloisi and Mariana de Andrade.

Since 2019, the firm has consistently been included in the list of law firms selected by Chambers for their compliance expertise. More recently, in October 2021 we were shortlisted for the ‘The Journal of Export Controls and Sanctions (World ECR)’ award Export Controls Law Firm of the Year- Europe, thus being selected as one of the top four European practices in the sector.

The team is coordinated by lawyers Marco Padovan (“the to-go to person when facing regulatory issues such as export controls, sanctions and other restrictions”, according to Whos’Who Legal- Trade & Customs 2021- International Sanctions) and Marco Zinzani. The entry of new colleagues confirms the team’s outstanding position in the national and international scenes of specialized studies in the fields of export control, international economic sanctions and customs law, and its clear engagement in continuing the process of growth undertaken. We thus strive to offer companies and financial institutions increasingly efficient and highly qualified support.
