Providing assistance with visas, real estate, tax consultancy, art acquisitions, intellectual property and anything else required by expatriates in Tuscany, the services will be aimed at individuals and businesses alike. In charge of development in Tuscany, Francesca Bignami will helm the office as legal partner of the Florence office alongside Simone Guidi for the tax practice. A renowned lawyer among the region’s international community, Bignami vaunts 20-plus years of experience in the fields of corporate – M&A and real estate, as well as acting as a port of call for Italian and international managers, family businesses and private investors.

“I am delighted to join such a solid and professional team in an established and innovative firm like PwC TLS, which will enable fully integrated expertise aimed at providing growth opportunities for the local area through a variety of targeted consultancy and excellence,” comments Francesca. “At a time of major change, also professional change, it is increasingly essential that a professional provides support to individuals and companies via a team of consultants that have specialist skills. Our goal is to provide varied assistance, based on clients’ needs, structured through continuous consultancy that is diversified from a legal standpoint, so that support is given on a range of legal and fiscal matters through just one representative.”
