The company, which has nine tax experts, is led by partner Gaetano Salvioli.

The firm helped Lundbeck Italia with the submission of a tax ruling request on VAT with regard to repayment of specialised pharmaceuticals. Additionally, the team offered Energy Zukunft Schweiz guidance in order to set up the Italian holding and operational structure.

Federica Cioni, an associate from Studio Biscozzi Nobili Piazza-Legale Tributario, joined the company during the research period, while associate Michele Chiumarulo left to join the CNH Iveco Group.

Client feedback

“They propose innovative solutions, also demonstrating a good understanding of the industry we operate in. The solutions they propose show a sound knowledge of the legal framework, since they always consider the most recent interpretation as well as the upcoming legislative news (at both national and international [where relevant] levels). The team is well structured and fast in reacting, especially in case of urgent matters. We appreciated the fact that the dedicated team has been quite stable, and that partner and senior professionals have been actually involved. Moreover, they have a deal-oriented approach, which was very useful to overcome an impasse we recently had to deal with.”
