Unity is strength, and the key to successfully offering high-performance, bespoke services to a clientele who increasingly demand interdisciplinary professional services at the highest level. We have lost count of the mergers in the risky sector of Italian corporate law firms. The phenomenon has become widespread, as is reflected in this start to 2019, and a common feature is that those joining forces are often professional firms with a long tradition. Such is the case of the new professional association ‘Villa Roveda e associati’, resulting from the union of ‘Villa & Villa’ (a firm founded in Milan in 1950 by Germano Villa) and ‘Roveda e associati’ (founded in Lodi in 1975 by Ernesto Roveda). With offices in Milan and Lodi, twenty professionals (lawyers, accountants and employment consultants), of whom six are partners, and thirty assistants, the elements that characterize the firm are those common to most of the new corporate law firms: a multidisciplinary approach (covering the main areas of interest of the business world: tax, corporate, legal and employment) and bespoke customer service.

As managing partner Emiliano Villa explained, “We have created a project that brings together the experience of three generations of professionals, and with them, different skills and experience within a single structure that can represent a go-to solution for Italian businesses and Italian branches of multinationals.” Angela Roveda added: “We are united by a common conception of professional activity, shared values, complementary skills and, last but not least, a long-standing friendship.”
