Ughi e Nunziante

21 February 2011

Founded in 1969, this Italian firm has grown to some 60 lawyers.

Who’s Who Name:
Piero Bernardini

Though not especially famed for contentious work, it’s developed a particular reputation for international arbitration. Piero Bernardini is the standout name here – he is of counsel at the firm. Described as “the top man in Italy”, “first class” and “the dean of Italian arbitration”, he has a depth of experience in investor-state arbitration. Bernardini has received many appointments as chair and co-arbitrator at ICSID. He is currently chairing a panel hearing a mining claim against Venezuela, as well as presiding over Macedonia’s first ICSID case, brought by Austrian energy supplier EVN. He’s also a former vice-president of the ICC court, and an honorary president of ICCA.

Among his colleagues at the firm, partner Angelo Anglani spearheads advocacy work. Anglani has a mixed international litigation and arbitration practice. He is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a member of the first chamber of the appointing authority at the Chinese European Arbitration Centre, chairman of Euroadvocaten and co-chair of Arbit, the Italian forum for arbitration and ADR.
