Lear is pleased to announce that Alessia Marrazzo and Salvatore Nava have been promoted to partners.
Alessia Marrazzo has joined Lear in March 2014. She has amassed considerable experience in Lear’s litigation practice, routinely supporting clients in follow-on damages actions; she has been involved in several cases before the Italian Competition Authority; and she has worked on ex-post evaluation analyses of competition policy decisions on behalf of the European Commission and national competition authorities. Most notably, Alessia has recently advised a leading operator in the Italian energy sector in a series of damages claims brought by its clients and competitors; and assisted the Mexican government in two arbitration cases. Alessia holds a Master in Competition and Regulation from the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics.
Salvatore Nava has joined Lear in September 2014, after gaining extensive experience in a competition economics consultancy based in London. During this time, Salvatore has worked across all of Lear’s practices, including public and private enforcement of competition law and technical assistance. Most recently, Salvatore has led the team responsible for the ex post evaluation of digital mergers that Lear carried out on behalf of the CMA; and the one tasked with the assessment of State Aid rules set out by the European Commission to help SMEs gain access to finance. Salvatore holds advanced degrees in Economics and Industrial Economics from the University of Rome Tor Vergata and the University of East Anglia respectively.
Since being established in 1999 by Paolo Buccirossi, Lear has grown to become a respected member of the global antitrust community. With these appointments, Lear commits to investing in its internal resources to continue to feed this growth.
