Schoenherr in Turkey has hired a corporate lawyer as head of its newly-established Italy desk.

Rosario Sapuppo is an experienced attorney who has previously worked on the Italy desk of an Istanbul-based law firm and on the Turkey desk of an Italian firm in Milan.

Levent Çelepçi, a Schoenherr partner and the head of its Istanbul office, said: “Rosario Sapuppo's extensive experience with the legal issues impacting business ties between Italy and Turkey made him the ideal candidate to head our office's newly created Italy desk.”

This is the second Italy desk opened in the international firm’s network following the one established in Bucharest in 2008.
