Ugo is an associate in the private client and tax team of the Hong Kong office and is a dual qualified English Solicitor and Italian lawyer (avvocato).

He mainly advises clients on international succession, tax, trust and estate planning, investment structuring and probate as well as on complex cross-border inheritance matters with common law and civil law angles.

He is an expert in EU Regulations affecting private individuals, such as the Succession Regulation and the Matrimonial Property Regimes Regulations.

As an avvocato, he built a significant expertise on investments in the Italian real estate market, tax and succession issues, corporate and commercial deals. He then focussed on private client and tax matters, and, as a solicitor, has acquired extensive international expertise in that area. He relocated to the Hong Kong office in March 2019.
