Founded in 1986 and with offices in Milan and Rome, Di Tanno e Associati is a reference point in Italy for tax and legal tax consultancy in terms of competence, professionalism and vision. This positioning has also been recognized at international level and has been made possible by the deep specialization and the distinctive approach of the firm, based on the ability to combine technical skills with a transparent consultancy model, focused on personal relationship.

Flexibility and personal commitment of its experienced professionals, together with the talent of brilliant young people, allow the firm to create value in particular complex or innovative situations, where standardized or conformed consultancy is not sufficient.
