The firm

Pirola Pennuto Zei & Associati was established in the 1970s as a partnership by a group of specialists. The firm provides tax and legal services to medium and large-sized companies and multinational groups and has continually sought to reinforce its multi-disciplinary approach by creating specialised centres of excellence. The firm is composed of 594 professionals, many of whom have participated in some of Italy’s most significant corporate and financing operations over the past decade.

The firm has nine offices in Italy (Milan, Rome, Turin, Padua, Bologna, Brescia, Naples, Verona, Parma and Florence), one in London, two in China (Beijing and Shanghai) and an Indian desk.

The firm focuses on selected areas of practice and guarantees to provide competence and top-quality services, thereby increasing efficiency and combining the trust relationship between the professional and the client with organisational skills, in order to manage complex operations in the entire Italian territory and abroad.

Pirola Pennuto Zei & Associati advises many of Italy’s leading corporations and several major Italian banks, both domestically and abroad. The representation of foreign clients, both in Italy and internationally, constitutes a significant part of the firm’s practice.
