Bonelli Erede Pappalardo has ditched its dual offices in Rome in preparation for a move into a single building at the end of November with space for 30 additional employees.

Managing partner Alberto Saravalle said: “Formerly we had two separate offices in Rome. It simply made sense for everyone to be on the same premises. It gives the Rome branch the space to expand. We felt capped in our ability to grow in our prior situation.”

Bonelli has found a new home for its 50 fee-earners and 20 staff in the Eternal City – a palace once owned by the Italian royal family.

“We expect to move into the new office on 26 November,” added Saravalle. “It’s a beautiful palazzo that used to belong to the Savoia royal family.”
