From law firm to network of professionals
«A new organizational and management model has been built, aiming at enhancing individual specializations, attracting the best professionals, fostering professional growth and offering clients tangible worth»
This process started in 2014 with the associated law firm set up by Filippo Annunziata, Professor of Economics Law at University, and Andrea Conso, lawyer, two professionals with sound background and extensive expertise.
A high-profile team has been built around this core team, completed by Filippo Berneri, a chartered accountant and auditor, enhancing internal professional resources and attracting complementary professional expertise.
When Donato Varani, a chartered accountant and auditor, arrived in 2016 with a professional background at the Bank of Italy, the area of expertise has been extended with activities supporting in-house supervisory systems and corporate governance.
A growing network of professionals which integrates expertise
«Our network is based on a widespread and long-term partnerships with professionals focused on legal and consulting services»
Legal activity is carried out through the new model of the Partnership between Lawyers (STA), a tailor-made scheme offering benefits to professionals and clients.
Supervisory systems and corporate governance activities are carried out by one of the few audit firms specialized in outsourcing of compliance, anti-money laundering, audit and risk management functions.
This professional network also serves as a skills aggregator: a key role in the organizational and management model is played by external professionals who, on an ongoing basis, combine the offering with additional specialized services.
