During his 16-year career Vittorio Giordano has gained a significant amount of experience in trials before the Italian Supreme Court, the Italian Constitutional Court, the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights, where he represented taxpayers in highly complex tax and state aid issues. Indeed, he is one of the few Italian lawyers admitted to appear before the supreme courts when he was just 35 years old, after having passed the relevant exam with full marks. As an integral part of his practice, Vittorio also provides assistance in the context of tax audits, settlements procedures and administrative rulings, acts as expert in criminal tax cases and regularly advises clients on income taxes, indirect taxes, property taxes, excise duties and tax avoidance, aiming at mitigating the risk of tax disputes arising on their transactions.

Vittorio was born in 1978 and began his career in 2002 with Professor Franco Gallo, former president of the Italian Constitutional Court, and became partner of the homonymous law firm in 2013. After taking part in the opening of the Ludovici Piccone & Partners' Rome office in 2015, Vittorio established his own practice in 2017 together with his long-time colleague Andrea Merolle.

Giordano-Merolle – Studio Legale Tributario is a boutique law firm of 11 professionals deeply specialised in taxation, with offices in Rome and Milan, which provides assistance mainly to banks, insurance companies, MNE and HNWI. The firm recently advised and represented, inter alia, an Italian Bank for tax topics related to a EUR 4.4 billion securitisation of receivables, a real estate company in a EUR 100 million deemed tax-avoidance trial before the Italian Supreme Court and several e-cigarettes companies in trials before lower tax courts concerning the application of excise duties on consumption and its compatibility with the EU harmonised legislation.
