Rothwell Figg associate Davide Schiavetti has been named a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation (ABF), a global honorary society of attorneys, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession. ABF Fellows membership is by invitation only and is limited to one percent of lawyers licensed to practice in a jurisdiction.

Established in 1955, The Fellows of the ABF honors those who have made exceptional contributions to the legal profession and their communities. Fellows are selected based on their reputation, accomplishments, and endorsements from current Fellows. In order to be considered for membership in the Fellows, one must be nominated by an existing Fellow and approved by the Chair(s) of the jurisdiction, the Fellows Officers, and the Board of the American Bar Foundation. The ABF Fellows program aims to foster collaboration among legal professionals and promote research that enhances understanding of legal institutions and processes, ultimately contributing to the improvement of the legal system.

Originally from Milan, Italy, Davide specializes in counseling clients from European countries through the legal intricacies of trademarks and copyrights as they enter the North American market. While he serves clients across Europe, he is particularly active in representing companies form Italy. These companies span various sectors, predominantly in the food, wine, fashion, and automotive industries. Brands he counsels in trademark law include some of Italy’s most well-known global names, such as Valentino, Ferrero, Lavazza, Soremartec, Barilla, and Fiat, among others. Davide is particularly active in the American Bar Association (ABA), acting as chair of the Committee on Fashion Law of the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law (ABA-IPL) and previously serving as Vice-chair of the Trademark Transactions Committee of the ABA-IPL. Davide was named a “Rising Star” by Washington, D.C. Super Lawyers (2024), recognized as a Rising Star by Managing IP (2021-2023), and ranked among Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch for Intellectual Property Law (2023-2024).

The ABF was founded in 1952 by the American Bar Association, filling the need for an independent center for interdisciplinary research into the law. With a generous gift from the American Bar Endowment (ABE), an ABA affiliate charity offering insurance products to ABA members, the ABF was built as “a research center for the organized bar of America.” The ABF seeks to expand knowledge and advance justice through innovative, interdisciplinary, and rigorous empirical research on law, legal processes, and legal institutions.
