With effect from 1 May 2021, Dr Vittorio Cardano will become the new head of the PLUTA Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (law firm) branch in Milan, Italy. He has previously lived in Germany for more than 10 years and spent several years working for an international corporate law firm. Dr Cardano has been admitted to practice law as a lawyer in Italy since 2013 and in Germany as of this year.
Vittorio Cardano has been working with both the German and Italian legal systems for many years and possesses extensive expertise in supporting cross-border projects. At PLUTA, he has been focusing on Italian commercial law, trade and corporate law, insolvency law, and M&A consulting.
In Italy, PLUTA supports its clients with matters relating to commercial and insolvency law. This offering is of interest to insolvency administrators both German and international alike. At the same time, it also appeals banks and investors with interests in Italy as well as Italian companies which have links to Germany.
The new branch head Dr Vittorio Cardano states: "In my new role as branch head, I have benefitted from possessing many years of experience in project work as part of international teams, being well versed in commercial relationships between Germany and Italy, and having experience with German-Italian legal transactions. I am also very familiar with both cultures. Even in Italy, we offer our clients 360-degree support in matters relating to commercial law, allowing us to contribute to the success of their cross-border business. Of course, I'm also looking forward to collaborating with my German colleagues and my future tasks in Milan."
PLUTA's Milan-based subsidiary has been active since 2001 and specialises in providing legal advice to companies, in particular for legal matters relating to reorganisation and insolvency law. This PLUTA branch is located right in the heart of Milan's historic city centre.
Dr Cardano studied law both at the University of Ferrara and in Heidelberg as an Erasmus student. He also received his doctorate from the University of Regensburg – as part of an international collaboration with the University of Verona. From 2014 to 2017, he completed a postdoc at the German-Italian Institute for the Comparison of Legal Culture in Europe (D.I.R.E.) and served as the chair for commercial, trade and corporate law at the Dresden University of Technology.
