Dario’s thirty-year experience in asset tracing and securing in complex financial disputes in Continental Europe, the US and the UK brings to Prudhoe Caribbean unique know-how in dealing with situations involving different legal systems. Dario has practiced in New York since 1989 and Italy since 1993. He was also admitted as an advocate of the Italian Supreme Court (the highest appellate court there) in 2001.
