Davide is a founding member of Eptalex and the Managing Partner of the Dubai Eptalex office of MEG Legal Services. He is a qualified Italian lawyer, specialized in corporate and International Intellectual Property Law. His experience in the Middle East North African Region started in Cairo, grew in Lebanon and consolidated in the Gulf, where he handles a portfolio of Italian clients in the Insurance, Aviation, Energy, Advertising, Automotive, Shipping, Fashion, and Trading industries. Davide effectively combines his passion for cross-border negotiation, his solid familiarity with local laws and a firm grasp of the specific nuances within regional jurisdictions to bridge culture gaps that often hinder the performance of foreign investors in the Region. He builds and trains teams of lawyers that address companies' businesses from a "value creation" legal perspective and offer solutions to problems that sometimes have not (yet) arisen or which have not fully expressed their potential disruptiveness in the business. Davide believes in the need of offering very specific legal services to the different players in the business world: hence, the dedication to create special ad hoc teams at the firm to address industries with the utmost specialization.
Davide is lecturer at Ca' Foscari Master IGAMI, focusing on the legal aspects of economic relations between the Gulf and the Indian Sub-continent and lectures at Masters GES at Ca' Foscari University, specifically addressing "Negotation techniques and essential legal framework in the GCC Countries".
