Duccio represents a wide number of high-net worth individuals and families, as well as entrepreneurs and owner-managed/family businesses. A particular area of emphasis is advising clients operating in high-profile sectors (sports, entertainment, fashion), often in an international setting.
Aside from general private client work (including advice in relation to wills, trusts, estate planning and domicile issues) Duccio works with his clients in reviewing private wealth, commercial and asset ownership structures (including setting up and administering image rights companies), as well as advising on ancillary commercial and corporate matters. He also advises on charitable law, particularly in the context of family grant-making foundations, private charitable entities or other philanthropic activity.
Duccio is a bilingual English-Italian speaker and acts for a number of Italian clients, both individuals and corporate entities, with interests in the UK, or for international clients investing and operating in Italy. He is often called upon to assist international clients with a UK connection in dealing with local advisors in Italy and in other jurisdictions.
Before joining Keystone Law in 2009, Duccio spent over 10 years in City firms, where he trained and started his career as a corporate lawyer, before moving into private client work.
