For more than twenty years Gad worked with companies and foreign multinational groups with interests in Italy or with Italian groups with interests outside Italy in various sectors (from food to construction, from high tech machinery to satellite tracking to the medical products market). His university education and post graduate experience from the beginning was very international and led Gad to assist clients in commercial transactions of varying nature (sales, distribution, agency, supply and service contracts) nearly always with an international element or with a contentious angle or matter of a transnational regard.
