Mr. dePunzio is an active member in good standing of the State Bar of California.

His governing philosophy is “no job is too big, or too small” and Ugo prides himself on his hands-on approach.

He is highly knowledgeable in software licensing, particularly focused towards mitigating litigation risk associated with open-source software.
Mr. dePunzio has an M.B.A. in International Finance and B.A. in Economics, and is intimately familiar with advanced financial principles, discounted cash-flow analysis, probability-based valuation models, and risk management in accordance with parametric criteria.
Prior work experience in the financial industry and capital markets required holding (currently inactive) Broker/Dealer (B/D), Series 7, and Series 55 licenses, which entailed a keen understanding of applicable regulations of the relevant regulatory agencies such as the SEC and FINRA, in addition to the daily operations involving high-volume arbitrage (stock and options) trading.
Mr. dePunzio has native or advanced professional fluency in five languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and English), and remains current with most recent relevant software applications, particularly those involved in attorney document review, such as Relativity (among others).
