Who's Who Legal Italy - Data

Saverio is senior counsel at Dentons Europe’s intellectual property and technology department.

Saverio primarily focuses on regulatory and contractual perspectives; legal issues concerning audio-visual media services and soft-IP (copyright and related rights); IT (outsourcing, contractual arrangements for the assignment and licence of IPRs, etc); and data protection. He also represents national and multinational clients before the Italian regulatory public bodies, as well as in negotiations with Italian copyright collecting societies (SIAE, SCF, Nuovo IMAIE). He has also published several articles and textbooks in his fields of expertise.

During last years, Saverio has been involved in some of the most important M&A transactions concerning digital terrestrial and satellite TV channels, including the sale and purchase of Sky Italia by BSkyB; LCN33 (formerly Agon Channel) by Scripps Networks; LCN27 (formerly SkyTG24) by Viacom Group; and  LCN8 (formerly MTV) by Sky Italia.

LegalCommunity’s 2018 report, The Best in Italy, states: “Saverio managed what can be considered the biggest media project in 2017. He also combines media and copyright knowledge with new technologies and data expertise, making him a unique TMT lawyer. He leads some of the most complex GDPR compliance projects in the Italian market, advising top fashion houses and bank/insurance undertakings.”

In 2006, Saverio graduated cum laude at Sapienza University of Rome’s School of Law. In 2014, he gained a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in competition (and media) law at Queen Mary, University of London. In 2011, he attended the Columbia summer programme in American law at the University of Amsterdam. In 2008, he attended, on scholarship, the “Silvano Tosi” seminar in parliamentary study at the University of Florence.

WWL says: Saverio Cavalcanti is an experienced data privacy lawyer who garners recognition as “one of the best lawyers in Italy”.
