Loconte & Partners opens London office
The Italian law firm, Loconte & Partners have announced that they will be opening their first office outside of Italy.
Angela Cordasco has been appointed the London offices managing partner. Prior to taking up this role she worked advising on international tax issues, as well as all aspects of tax litigation.
The practice will focus largely on wealth management and assist the Italian offices in cross border issues.
The firm has cited the legal consequences of Brexit as an area in which they expect to do a lot of work.
Stefan Loconte said of the move, “we believe that Brexit will generate interesting business opportunities for the firm and boost employment; companies and people who have already invested in the United Kingdom will now have to evaluate the fiscal and legal consequences of the referendum”.
