CC Italy bolstered by hire of Fiat legal chief

Clifford Chance’s Italian practice is strengthening its corporate department with the hire of Fiat’s general counsel, Luciano Soldi as an Of Counsel.

Soldi joins Clifford Chance on Monday (22 November). Clifford Chance’s Italian managing partner said his appointment would give the firm the opportunity to enlarge its network of relations in a more efficient manner, as a result of Soldi’s inside knowledge of large Italian businesses.

Prior to his work for Fiat, Soldi was legal affairs director for Pirelli and ENI subsidiary SAIPEM.
