About Giuseppe Curtò

Giuseppe Curtò is one of the Partners of our Dispute Resolution practice group in Milan. With 20 years’ experience in banking and finance litigation advising on disputes of all kinds (including criminal investigations), he has recently focused on assisting clients in the Telecommunications, Media and Tech (TMT) sector and in respect of consumer claims, as well as class actions and mass claims.

With over twenty-five years’ experience as litigator, Giuseppe helps clients with the entire breadth of disputes, from very specific technical issues to extremely complex legal issues, such as derivatives litigation, mis-selling claims, and post-M&A claims. Giuseppe also has experience handling class actions and mass claims and is well aware of the typical risks of this type of litigation and is therefore able to provide pragmatic solutions.

Particularly interested in issues relating to the TMT sector, such as the development of AI, and as the advisor of globally active technology companies, Giuseppe has acquired a very good understanding of the tech industry. This helps him find avenues and solutions for defending the clients in complex litigation.

Giuseppe always ensures he understands the client’s business thoroughly in order to choose the best course of action.
