Stefania is qualified in Italy, England & Wales and Hong Kong, bringing with her a wealth of international expertise. Her corporate law background includes experience in M&A, cross border transactions and commercial agreements across a range of industries, particularly fintech and fashion. Stefania is a lecturer at MIP School of Management in Milan, and she has authored a number of business publications including:
- Women Breaking Through Leadership – RT Publishing, Hong Kong, February 2012

Fausto Caruso most recent experience includes advising InvestiRE, a major Italian Real Estate Asset Management Firm, on acquiring a portfolio of clinics in the expected development of Spazio Sanità, a health care-related property fund.
Managing Partner of the Milan office, Davide Proverbio commented “thanks to her broad spectrum of practice, which includes advising on commercial contracts in the fashion and IT industries, Stefania’s addition enables us to demonstrate stronger presence and wider capability, while Fausto’s promotion to Counsel shows our willingness to invest in talent”.
The eight-strong team based in Milan will focus both on increasing KWM’s work on larger transactions while maintaining their local presence.
