Lawyer Stefano Parravicini
WHOM ARE YOU DEALING WITH?
A brief interview to underline competences and skills, beliefs and achievements. Let’s lay bare the secrets that make us a winning team.
- What's your name?
- I am Stefano Parravicini.
- What type of lawyer are you?
- I am a Civil Lawyer and my expertise focuses on Inheritance Law and Real Estate Law, but usually I deal also with other issues, such as Contract Law and Civil Liability.
- What can you tell me about your education and training? Do you have any particular qualifications?
- I attended my Law studies at Università degli Studi di Milano – Bicocca, in Milan, and I graduated in 2010, discussing a thesis about Banks status and civil liability . After my traineeship I qualified as a Lawyer in the Milan Court of Appeal during the 2012—2013 exam session, on 4th November 2013 and, then, I swore in front of the Order Council in January 2014. Since September 2011 I have also been appointed as Assistant (the proper title is Cultore della Materia) at University. I deal with Contract and Obligation Law and, more specifically, Consumer and Banking Law. For the next future, I am planning to attend a Ph.D., possibly in Civil or Roman Law, and/or a post-degree course in Sports Law at the Università degli Studi di Milano.
- Have you ever had any professional experience abroad?
- Before graduating I spent summers working in both France and Germany. I was also team member in a Rotary Group Study Exchange in Missouri (US).
- Why did you decide to become a lawyer ?
- I guess my choice depends mainly of the fact that I am a humanist: I have always been interested in a wide spectrum of subjects such as literature, philosophy, logic and dialectics. Moreover, since I was a child I have been keen on playing chess and other strategy games. For these reasons, I have always thought that becoming a Lawyer would fit with my natural skills and interests.
- What are your professional skills?
- Answering this question by myself may seem a self-praise, so I would like to answer with the words that other people addressed to me, saying I can take great advantage of my knowledge and of my highly speculative mind.
- Have you a professional motto?
- Whenever I approach and study a case, I am used to recalling to my mind what J.P. Morgan used to say :“I don't know as I want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire him to tell how to do what I want to do”.
- Have you also a motto in life?
- Well, if I have to choose, I would mention two famous quotes by the Greek philosopher Socrates: “Life without enquiry is not worth living” and “Know thyself”, that to express the idea of “being open to the outside”, picking up stimulus to gain greater and greater self-awareness.
- Are you socially involved?
- I am one of the founders of a cultural juvenile association and I am rather engaged in local politics. Moreover, I am involved in the activity of the Civil Court of Monza.
- Other curiosities you would like to underline?
- Apart from law, I have lots of other interests in my life, mainly linked to arts (in its wider meaning: picture, music, architecture, photography, cinema and so on), as well as literature, history and philosophy, and as I said before; I also like ancient books. All these interests reflect on my being of Numismatic: I have certain experience in that field, as I have being collecting coins since I was a child. Among other things, I am also fond of sports cars and watches, as well as fine food, wine and whisky – all things that, in my opinion, under certain conditions can be really seen as works of art.
