Dickinson Law is pleased to announce that Andrea Rastelli has joined the firm. Andrea is a recent Juris Doctor graduate of the University of Iowa College of Law and holds a B.A. in International Relations and Latin American Studies from Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania.

Her legal training includes serving as an intern at John Deere Financial and Comcast Corporate, and as an extern at ACT where collectively she gained experience on issues such as compliance, corporate governance, privacy, intellectual property, and secured transactions. She also served as a Summer Associate at Dickinson law in 2018.

“I enjoyed my time at Dickinson over the summer and I’m excited to officially join the firm and dive into a variety of interesting fields,” she said.

Andrea will be focused on providing banking solutions, including cybersecurity, intellectual property, and a variety of employment and labor issues.

“The Des Moines market offers a lot of opportunities as I grow as an attorney because of the number of financial-based organizations. I like the fact that it’s a smaller city that thinks and feels big.”

Andrea is fluent in Spanish and English. She was born in Venezuela and moved with her family to the U.S. at the age of six when her mother’s corporate job was transferred to the East Coast.

“Being bilingual will provide me with additional opportunities in my new role to serve both English and Spanish-speaking clients.”

Outside of the office, Andrea enjoys working out, weight-lifting and traveling.
