31 May 2021

At BonelliErede’s partners’ meeting on Friday, 28 May, the partnership was called on to renew the board and executive roles of the firm – leader in Italy for legal and tax services.
Board members Andrea Carta Mantiglia, Stefano Nanni Costa and Stefano Simontacchi are now joined by Giulia Bianchi Frangipane, Riccardo Bordi, Eliana Catalano, Massimiliano Danusso, Giuseppe Manzo and Silvia Romanelli.
A key development is the introduction of a ‘pink quota’, which will ensure the presence of at least one woman on the board.
The partnership approved the re-appointment of Stefano Simontacchi as President and the appointment of Andrea Carta Mantiglia as Managing Partner.
Stefano Simontacchi and Andrea Carta Mantiglia commented: “We thank the partners for continuing to place their trust in us. As we look to the future, we keep in mind the journey that we began years ago, which is founded on teamwork and the continuous pursuit of excellence. We intend to continue in this direction, to strive for sustainable development over time and to build the law firm of the future together. Vision, commitment, sharing and sustainability will guide us and the members of the new board in the management of BonelliErede”.
