Italian firm Chiomenti Studio Legale has made its new partner promotions, making up four. The promotions give 185-strong Chiomenti its first competition head since 2000, with Stefania Baratti filling the hole left by Luca Radicati di Brozolo. Rome scooped the lion's share of the promotions, taking three new partners, while Milan corporate expert Vincezo Cariello was promoted. As well as Baratti, who spends much of her time in the Brussels office, the Rome office now has a new corporate partner and a new finance partner in the form of Marco Maugeri and Giulio Tognazzi . Chiomenti's other offices are in Turin, London and New York. It also has a formal alliance with Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom. The new partners can enjoy an average profit per equity partner of nearly €1.5m (£992,000).
