A conversation with Bruno Cova, hosted by Martin Weinstein
In this Willkie Compliance Concourse podcast, Martin Weinstein, Chair of Willkie’s Compliance, Investigations & Enforcement practice, interviews Bruno Cova on his career, the lessons he has learnt along the way and his views on what is on the horizon for compliance professionals.
Bruno Cova is a partner in Willkie’s Milan office*. He advises clients on both corporate matters and litigation. On the transactional side, Bruno works on restructurings and distressed M&A, while his non-transactional work focuses on corporate governance and compliance, internal investigations and defending corporations and their senior managers before regulators and in the context of criminal proceedings.
Bruno started his career as a private practitioner in Milan and London, and was then general counsel of the exploration & production division of Eni SpA, chief compliance officer of the EBRD, and group general counsel of Fiat SpA. Immediately prior to returning to private practice, he was the Chief Counsel to the Extraordinary Commissioner appointed by the Italian government to investigate Europe’s largest financial fraud at Parmalat and to deal with the restructuring of the company.
