Rome, February 2, 2022 – Curtis is pleased to announce the appointment of leading antitrust and competition lawyer Manfredi De Vita as Partner in its Rome office.

Alfonso de Marco, Chairman of Curtis’ Italian practice comments “I have known Manfredi De Vita for many years. He adds to the depth of our full service Italian practice, and his competition law focus is particularly topical in the context of the implementation of the Recovery Plan in Italy.”
