Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Sophisticated trust planning and trust tax litigation.
I also handled (and am handling) dozens of cases of redomiciliation of individuals and families in Italy under the new Italian resident non-dom rules.
Another substantial part of my practice has been the representation of foreigners and foreign trustees in succession litigations in Italy and in pre-litigation settlements.
Hardcore international tax planning is of course always present in all the mandates I assist on.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

Study, study and study. Be curious about everything. Talk with people and listen to what they are saying and to what the feel especially. You always have something to learn.

What is your favourite quote?

I have two or three I think of on many occasions:
“When you pray for the rain, you have to deal with the mud too.”
“Do not forget those who helped you on the way up.”
“What I need does not cost any money.”
