My main responsibilities are to advise local multidisciplinary teams to run the business in compliance, and to keep the general counsel and managing director in the headquarters in Europe aware of the ongoing legal issues. I have expertise in contracts, alternative dispute resolution, compliance, competition, privacy, regulation, litigation and public affairs.

[Moving in-house] was a natural and smooth process. I started my career in a big international law firm, but an interesting project in an American multinational company convinced me to have new experiences.

[On career achievements of which Osti is particularly proud] Settlements with competition authorities in the US, Brazil and Chile. Strategic litigation against competitors. Implementation of a mediation layer in my litigation process – huge savings. Successful negotiations with consumer protection bodies in Brazil. In 2018, I published a book about civil liability of online travel agencies.
