E&Y Italy hit by legal and tax team defection

Chairman and 15 lawyers depart to start own practice

E&Y Italy has been hit by the departure of 16 lawyers from its legal and
tax arm, including its chairman Paolo Tanoni.

According to Legal Week, Tanoni is considering forming a standalone
firm and believes 10-15 lawyers will join him.

Tanoni said he resigned because of insufficient investment by the firm in its
95-lawyer Italian legal arm.

He told Legal Week: ‘I leave on good terms and have many friends at
Ernst & Young, but they simply do not want to invest enough in the legal
practice.’
