Automotive, Smart mobility, and Connected Vehicles will be the main target areas for the group’s work. The group will be led by counsel Irene Picciano, who has nearly twenty-five years’ experience working with clients on competition and EU law and product, trade, and corporate compliance issues in this sector.
The Automotive & Mobility team includes attorneys specialized in many different areas affected by the evolution of this market, therefore reflecting the firm’s signature interdisciplinary approach.
Over the years, Portolano Cavallo has observed and often participated in profound changes in Automotive & Mobility. Progress in this area has been nothing short of revolutionary due to technological innovation, ranging from artificial intelligence to sustainability. One of many examples can be found in connected cars equipped with radar, cameras, remote diagnostic systems, and other digital tools that connect to the Internet and use mobile devices to communicate with the outside world.
The firm has worked with and continues to work with many automotive and OEM companies, such as sustainable mobility service, Maas, and IS suppliers, telecommunications companies, and infotainment providers.
“The growing demand among clients and the extensive Automotive & Mobility track record accrued over the years, made the creation of this team a natural next step,” said Irene Picciano, counsel at Portolano Cavallo. “This will allow us to provide full assistance to our clients combining the expertise accrued over the years in this industry and in the field of digital and new technologies.”
