Cristina Pagni has joined the dispute resolution team at Simmons & Simmons LLP based in Milan.
Joining a team of seven, Pagni is the firm’s only dispute resolution partner in Italy. She arrives from Hogan Lovells Sudio Legale where she often represented parties in proceedings before the ICC and Chamber of Arbitration of Milan.
Pagni specialises in litigation and arbitration, relating to banking, insurance and reinsurance, company and commercial law and bankruptcy procedures.
“We have a very strong disputes practice in Italy, and Cristina’s arrival will build upon the financial and commercial litigation expertise that already exists within the team,’’ said Hans-Hermann Aldenhoff, international head of dispute resolution at Simmons & Simmons.
Simmons & Simmons also describes Pagni’s hire as a “major recruitment which took a long time to negotiate.”
“I have joined Simmons & Simmons with the aim to further develop the firm's arbitration practice, gain domestic and international arbitration work in the energy and construction, insurance and reinsurance industries, as well as in the financial and banking sector, where the firm has an outstanding placement in Italy,” commented Pagni.
Hogan Lovells has wished Pagni well at her new firm.
She features in The International Who’s Who of Commercial Litigators.
