At the beginning of his professional activity, Michele worked with an independent law firm specialized in banking law, providing legal opinions on organization of the legal service and management of consumer credit, employees and credit collection as well as dealing with litigation cases in favour of cooperative credit institutions.

As an associate (since 2000), junior partner (2010) and partner (since 2012) of Valobra Cherchi law firm (formerly Lucente and Valobra), a spin-off of Ercole Graziadei international law firm, Michele carried out mainly counselling activities in many areas such as commercial agreements, company law (providing opinions and assistance in mergers, acquisitions, joint venture agreements, drafting of company documents and shareholders’ agreements, legal assistance on corporate compliance), antitrust procedures about restricting practices and misleading advertising, privacy law, payment services (both before and after the PSD), tourism sector and, more recently, insolvency proceedings by assisting Insolvency Officials in administrative compulsory liquidations.

For some clients, Michele has been also involved in litigation matters, with particular reference to disputes regarding the Interbank Register of bad cheques and payment cards (C.A.I.) and to private credit information systems, contributing to the development of the jurisprudence of the sector and reaching the position of manager of the judicial and bankruptcy sector at the Valobra Cherchi law firm.

Finally, Michele has been active in a number of arbitration and ADR proceedings, and in 2010 he was admitted to the exercise of the Professional Corporate Mediator function pursuant to Legislative Decree no. n. 222/2004.
The vast and multidisciplinary professional experiences of Michele are one of his main prerogatives because they have allowed him to develop a holistic approach to corporate consultancy, enabling him to understand the needs of each client and its specific business, in order to relate every single activity carried out in the interest of the client (from the correction of a simple e-mail to the planning of a complex business restructuring plan), to the client’s goals by checking all possible consequences and risks of each action, also in light of the feedback received from the litigation experience.
