I am Claudia, an Italian entertainment lawyer, founder partner of DANDI, which in Italian stands for “Diritto d’Autore & Diritto Industriale” – “Copyright and Intellectual Property Law.”
DANDI is not only a blog but also a Rome based media and entertainment boutique firm, working with creative talents and media entrepreneurs worldwide.
The media industry in which I operate is complex, fast moving and exciting. New technologies emerge quickly, which creates a dynamic platform and an exciting, consumer led experience. I am a blue chip lawyer, best known for my broad and longstanding expertise acting for Film, TV, Music and Multi-media producers as well as for the Fashion and retail sectors.
I have focused my practice primarily in the areas of intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks), entertainment, corporate and new media law, both at the transactional and litigation levels. I specialised in intellectual property creation, protection and exploitation, through distribution and licensing, including dealing with the ever evolving digital environment.
My clients have included artists, photographers, models, production companies, actors, new media entrepreneurs, and other creative types. I work in Rome. Since 2003, I have been admitted to “Ordine degli Avvocati di Roma” and I hold the title of “Avvocato” (Italian Bar). I speak English and Spanish.
