We're delighted to welcome two Italian-qualified lawyers to the EMW family!
We've recently launched the Italian desk in our London office as we continue with the firm's expansion drive.
The desk is being launched by two new consultants, both of whom join EMW from Top 200 commercial firm Greenwoods GRM. Both specialise in commercial law, primarily advising Italian businesses looking to invest and operate in the UK. Their work includes advising on commercial agreements, M&A, joint ventures and corporate structures.
- Caterina Iodice is a dual-qualified Italian avvocato and England & Wales lawyer who was a Partner at Greenwoods GRM. She is a board member of the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and a committee member of the British Italian Law Association.
- Roberta Savino is a dual-qualified Italian avvocato and England & Wales paralegal. Her specialisms include Anti Money Laundering and GDPR compliance as well as company incorporation and company secretarial work
"We're delighted to welcome both Caterina and Roberta to EMW as part of our new Italian desk. This underlines our commitment to growing the firm by attracting new skills and talent, as well as through direct acquisitions."
This is also a response to demand from a growing number of our clients who have overseas subsidiaries. It makes sense for us to meet that demand within the firm where possible.
We believe that there is profitable and sustainable growth for the firm in doing focused cross-border commercial work with clients from a limited number of key economies, of which Italy is the first.
We will gradually expand our international desks in the coming months as we implement our growth strategy. We're looking to both acquire specialist consultancies and hire professionals who can expand and complement our core commercial legal practice. For example, we recently acquired specialist tax consultancy STax, which advises on complex and high-value capital allowances claims for property developers and investors.
