Who's Who Legal Italy - Arbitration

Massimo Coccia holds a JD degree cum laude from the Law School of the University of Rome 1 (1981) and a Master of Laws degree (LLM) from the prestigious University of Michigan Law School (1984), which he attended having obtained a Fulbright fellowship.

Massimo Coccia is founding partner of Coccia De Angelis Vecchio & Associati, an internationally oriented Italian law firm with offices in Rome and Milan. Massimo is also a tenured law professor, teaching international law at the Tuscia University of Viterbo as well as at the University of Rome 1, and often publishing articles and speaking at symposia on issues of international arbitration.

As a practitioner, Massimo is mostly involved in international and national commercial arbitration, in international and national sports law, and in regulatory matters such as antitrust and energy.

With regard to international arbitration, Massimo has been frequently involved in commercial arbitration (both as an arbitrator and as a counsel) and in sports arbitration (mostly as an arbitrator). Within international commercial arbitration, Massimo has mostly dealt with construction matters and contractual disputes, also dealing sometimes with issues of corruption. Within sports arbitration, since 1996 Massimo has been an arbitrator at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), where he is regarded as one of the most experienced arbitrators, having sat in almost 300 cases and drafted many awards in prominent cases, including at the Olympic Games (he was a CAS arbitrator at the Olympics Games of Salt Lake City 2002, Turin 2006 and London 2012).

WWL says: Massimo Coccia "sees all the issues and is able to address them in an efficient manner" according to market sources, who rate him highly for being "very experienced in sports arbitration".
