Cordeiro Guerra & Associati

Founded in 2003 by a group of professionals with decades of experience in tax matters, Studio Legale Cordeiro Guerra & Associati is at the present date composed of a team of more than twenty lawyers and certified accountants based in the Florence and Milan offices, providing advice and consultancy services in domestic and international tax matters and assistance in tax litigation and tax criminal proceedings.

In these areas, the firm has assisted leading domestic and foreign clients in the negotiation of some of the most important tax settlement agreements at the national level, in business restructuring transactions, in the conduct of tax litigation and in the defence in criminal proceedings concerning tax and white collar crimes.

At the same time, the firm has acquired consolidated and multidisciplinary expertise in asset protection, protection of family estates and assistance in wealth and estate planning for families and high net worth individuals.

The firm distinguishes itself by offering consulting services tailored to the specific needs that are typical of each company and family, providing high standard assistance through both a multidisciplinary approach and a particular attitude to problem solving.

The main areas of expertise include domestic tax advisory, international tax planning, transfer pricing (APA, MAP), consulting on corporate and group taxation, including extraordinary transactions, assistance on commercial and corporate law matters, high net worth individuals and family wealth management, tax litigation, tax criminal law and the taxation of works of art.

Cordeiro Guerra & Associati has a consolidated network of relationships with leading foreign tax advisory firms. Thanks to the day-to-day contact with the associated offices, the firm offers clients solutions that are always well up-to-date with the international tax context.

When the Revenue Agency claims millions worth of money in tax, the company’s image, business continuity, the directors’ reputation and very often the owners’ family assets are put at risk.

The Firm has gained a significant experience on this field. Cordeiro Guerra & Associati has assisted leading Italian corporate groups in similar situations, managing to use sums seized in criminal proceedings to settle tax claims, reducing the size of the tax claims and avoiding the threats of corporate paralysis.

In similar cases it is essential to combine years of accademic and professional knowledge with years of experience on the field in a very short time as well as to have an enthusiastic and experienced team

Depth of analysis, team integration, dynamic components and academic experience of its founder — author of more than 50 contributions and, amongst other, Director of the masters in criminal tax law and transfer pricing — allowed the Firm to emerge as a consolidated player recognized amongst the best Italian firms in the sector (International Tax Review) and its founder as a market leader with widespread recognition (Toplegal).

In 2020 Milano Finanza awarded the Firm the elite 2020 legal award as the first firm in the Italian ranking for assistance and advice in criminal law and tax criminal law. The Firm’s clients include leading companies in the pharmaceutical, IT, hotel, fashion and luxury sectors and well-known artists and sportsmen.
