PwC sets up tax and legal ‘studio’ in Italy
Former network firm raided for partners and lawyers
PricewaterhouseCoopers has launched a combined tax and legal firm in Italy,
raiding former network firm Pirola Pennuto Zei & Associati for eight
partners and 80 lawyers.
Known as Studio TLS – which stands for Tax and Legal Services – it comprises
eight partners and 130 lawyers in total.
It will become the official legal arm for PwC in Italy and will provide
full-service corporate and commercial legal practice with offices in Milan and
Pirola, which has been left with 18 partners and 250 lawyers, will continue
to work with PwC, but on a reduced basis.
