Allen & Overy’s (A&O) Turin office is losing corporate partner Fabio Alberto Regoli.
Regoli, a salaried, or ‘local’, partner, has quit along with two senior associates, administrative law specialist Carlo Merani and Silvia D’Amaro, to start his own practice.
The trio will leave the firm on 1 October to form Bin Avocati Associati with Professor Bin of Turin University. The new firm will practise corporate law, administrative law and employment law. The move comes ahead of the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, which promises a feast of administrative and planning work.
Regoli, a partner with A&O since 2000, was part of Brosio Casati e Associati, which merged with the magic circle firm in 1998.
A&O’s Turin office was the beating heart of the Brosio Casati empire. However, the firm’s Milan, and increasingly its Rome, offices are now perceived as the financial and commercial centres of the firm’s Italian operations.
Italian managing partner Massimiliano Danusso said: “We have a very strong strategic position in Turin and we continue to be one of the strongest local offices. We plan to build upon this strength.”
Regoli’s departure leaves the office with just two full-time partners, Guido Brosio and Carlo Pavesio, and follows the relocation of corporate partner Mario Colombatto to Milan.
