Andrea Merolle is Managing Partner at Giordano-Merolle – Studio Legale Tributario – a tax law firm which he founded three years ago with his long-time colleague and friend Vittorio Giordano. With offices in Rome and Milan, Giordano-Merolle is recognised as a boutique of excellence by the specialised press. This firm’s lawyers assist taxpayers in Italy with both domestic and international tax issues and a particular emphasis on highly complex matters. Due to the cross-cutting nature of fiscal matters and thanks to their specific approach to the needs of the cases they deal with, the firm has acquired a solid national and international clientele. Their main interlocutors are primary banks, financial intermediaries, insurance companies, management companies and undertakings for collective investments, private equity firms, trusts companies, industrial companies involved in different sectors, bank foundations, social security entities, pensions funds, as well as non-commercial entities and individuals with significant assets. Over the years, Giordano-Merolle has developed and, today, continues to maintain stable relationships with leading Italian law and tax firms, including colleagues who specialise in other sectors, as well as with foreign correspondents, operating both in Europe and other jurisdictions. Passion and intellectual curiosity for their job drives the firm to improve every day.
