ATA studio, Asian Tax Advisory Ltd, strengthens its Singapore branch with the addition of Raffaella Piccoli.
After opening in Hong Kong in 2014, ATA’s choice to expand its presence to Singapore, the South-East Asia financial hub, confirms the firm’s strategy to constantly strengthen its presence in Asia to better support its clients in planning, implementing, and maintaining their investments in the region. Thanks to the long-established ATA main office in Hong Kong, crossroads of the Asian economy and financial hub for investment into China and North Asia, now the Singapore office allows ATA to support its clients in both Asian financial hubs.
Raffaella Piccoli, an Italian corporate lawyer with an extensive experience in Asia, joins ATA Singapore as a Partner.
Having spent more than a decade in Asia between Shanghai and Singapore, Raffaella Piccoli has acquired an extensive knowledge on foreign direct investments in the region: she advised several corporations in establishing their business in the region and overcome the investment challenges, bringing a unique European – Asian approach and presenting solutions to meet clients’ expansion plans and strategies. Her expertise includes corporate, commercial, and trading matters, as well as investment structuring and extraordinary operations.
“I’ve been knowing Raffaella for years, and I think her experience, listening skills and enthusiastic approach will better strengthen our capabilities to expand the Singapore branch” Marzio Morgante, ATA founder and Managing Partner, said.
Commenting on her new role, Raffaella said “I am delighted to be joining Marzio Morgante and Daniela Radrizzani in ATA, and to share my experience for the development of the Singapore office: I consider ATA, with its looking-forward attitude, and balance of young talents and affirmed professionals, as the ideal firm to achieve optimum outcomes for our clients”.
ATA has grown over the years to become the firm of choice in international tax matters and direct foreign investments for European and Italian corporations investing in Asia, as well as for Asian investors looking into Europe.
