After grammar school, Paolo Botta went on to graduate with honours (magna cum laude) in Economics and Commerce from the University of Genoa in 1990, where he then worked as a teaching assistant at the Institute of Business Studies until December 1997.
He enrolled with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Genoa in 1991 and the Institute of Auditors from its foundation in 1995. Since 1994 he has been a Technical Consultant at the Court of Genoa, where he has worked for many years as bankruptcy administrator, judicial commissioner/liquidator, and delegated official in sales operations and foreclosures. He has also worked for several years as a technical surveyor at the Court of Genoa, specialising in areas pertaining to the Specialised Business Sections, banking and insurance contracts, as well as technical, accounting, and financial reporting matters.
He has worked as a chartered accountant in Genoa, gaining particular experience in the following sectors: consulting and corporate law, including the various phases of company crisis, management and corporate restructuring, financial restructuring, national and international tax planning, mergers and acquisitions, tax consulting, and banking law.
He is a longstanding member of the Boards of Statutory Auditors of several commercial – including listed– enterprises.
In 2004, after working successfully with some of the future founding partners, he set up with them the Genoa Chambers in order to continue his professional activity with the same characteristics of independence and autonomy but taking advantage of the synergies resulting from being part of a group of professionals with the same vision of the intellectual profession and a shared feeling for human values. The partnership continues to this day with the same commitment and excellent results.
