Ginevra Bicciolo

Ginevra focuses on commercial disputes, competition litigation and human rights law.

Expertise

Ginevra was an intern at Hausfeld between 2017 and 2018 and assisted on some of Hausfeld’s most prominent cases during that time, including Stuart Wall v RBS and Air Cargo. Following the completion of her LPC in 2019, she re-joined Hausfeld and now trains to qualify as a solicitor.

Prior to Hausfeld, she undertook a number of legal internships and voluntary work in multiple jurisdictions, over the course of three years. She gained experience in the legal and NGO/not-for-profit sectors. Highlights were her work with refugees at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office in Cape Town and her internship at ALMT Legal, a top-tier dispute resolution law firm in Mumbai.

She demonstrates excellent case management skills and has had the responsibility of ensuring the smooth running of day-to-day legal departments. She possesses advocacy experience before the Social Security and Child Support Tribunal. Being passionate about access to justice, Ginevra has dedicated much of her free time to providing free legal advice to members of the public, at the Bar Pro Bono Unit (now Advocate) and the Free Representation Unit in London.

She is fluent in Italian and English and speaks conversational French.

Human Rights and Environmental Disputes

Prior to joining Hausfeld, Ginevra gained experience assisting asylum seekers, refugees and victims of conflict-related violence in their fights for justice.

She was particularly active in the transitional justice sphere in the former Yugoslavia, where she assisted lawyers of the Croatian NGO Documenta with monitoring war crime trials at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and participated in the first “Women’s Court” in Sarajevo.

At Hausfeld, she helped launch the firm’s Pro Bono practice in 2018, and acted on one of the two first LawWorks cases ever taken on by the firm. This involved advising a charity on its rights of compensation for disruption caused by roadworks.
