Sara Della Valle
I am a fully qualified lawyer under Italian law, having passed the Bar exam in 2004.
From then I have been working in my own legal firm, primarily in the field of civil law, both in court proceedings and at extra judiciary level (drafting contracts or legal opinions, negotiating settlement agreements).
I have translated legal documents (English to Italian), to be used in court proceedings and for negotiation purposes.
In 2011 I started working as a consultant for a publishing company. I negotiate and draft publishing contracts (in English and in Italian) and deal with copyright issues. I also select, read and present to the General Manager foreign non-fiction books, as I read English, French and Spanish. When needed, I proofread documents and translate texts (both legal and not) also for the marketing people.
My university education was based in Italy and in the Netherlands, concentrating on civil law in its different aspects, particularly as regards International Law and European Law, as well as both national and international contract law.
In my activity I greatly profit from what I learned through my training with a notary and during my year long coursework at the Turin Notary School.
