NCTM has enhanced its finance and TMT sector practice by merging with Rome based Panetta & Associati.

The move sees partners Rocco Panetta (privacy), Giorgio Telarico (finance) and Domenico Rinaldi (tax) join NCTM. From a financial and corporate perspective Telaracio is the most relevant as a specialist in structured finance.

Panetta had been formed in 2008 by the name partner, a former director of data protection agency Autorità Garante per la Protezione dei Dati Personali.
