Avv. Sergio Spagnolo

I was born in Milan, Italy on 14/9/1962.

I graduated from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, starting my professional activity in the law firm of Professor Federico Stella, in Milan, where I have been working for almost ten years.

My story

In 2001 I co-founded the associated law firm “Studio Legale Brusa Spagnolo Tosoni Carelli”.

During the course of my professional activity as criminal lawyer, I specialized in the field of financial and Corporate crimes (including money laundering crimes, fiscal criminal law, bankruptcy); Public Administration crimes; Intellectual property crimes; Professional liability (i.e. medical liability); Occupational health and safety; Corporate administrative liability (D.lgs. 231/01); Environmental crimes; crimes related to privacy violation and protection of sensitive data; new technologies crimes (cyber crimes); crimes against the public safety (environmental disaster, railway disaster, plane crash).

​In particular, I held defence counsel position on behalf of physical persons and the main Italian and international companies in the main criminal court cases of the last years such as: the court case for bankruptcy and market rigging by Parmalat, the court case for banking crimes by Banca Popular di Lod; the so-called “Telecom affair” case; the court case for bankruptcy against the Chiefs of Capitalia, and many other trials related to environmental law and health legislation violations (e.g. asbestos exposition); the railway disaster happened in Pioltello.

I co-operate with several Italian and international law firms (USA, UK, Switzerland and France) and I provide assistance and criminal counselling – as well as in relation to the above matters – also in relation to proceedings brought by CONSOB and Bankitalia.

I am a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Italy and member of IBA (International Bar Association).
I regularly hold conferences on corporate administrative liability (D.Lgs. 231/01), criminal liability of companies’ directors and statutory auditors, work accidents, trademark law, and on public administration cases.
I provide consultancy activities about corporate administrative liability (D.Lgs. 231/01), also participating in the drafting of the models for the prevention of crimes inside the corporation. I also provide consultancy activities for the
preparation of the models for the prevention of crimes connected to privacy regulations.

I carry out training activities with Italian and international companies; I provide consultancy regarding the prevention of the risk of commission of crimes.

I have been the supervisor president (ex D.Lgs. 231/01) of an international food/no food company, and I continue providing legal opinions on 231 law and in general 231 crimes.
