Baker McKenzie announces the arrival of Marco Orlandi as transfer pricing director Italy.
Marco Orlandi specializes in intragroup transfer pricing and international taxation, with particular reference to corporate restructuring, financial transactions, permanent establishments and IP valuations. Marco has also gained extensive experience in litigation, as well as in APA and MAP procedures.
From 2011 to 2016, he was a tax officer of the Italian Revenue Agency, where he was responsible for carrying out checks on large multinationals on transfer pricing and international tax issues. During his time at the Italian Revenue Agency he also took part, as team leader, in a joint audit pilot project between Italy and Germany and, subsequently, in the Tax Inspectors Without Borders project between Italy and Albania.
Even after his exit from the administration, he continued to cooperate with European institutions and international organizations by providing training on transfer pricing for developing countries.
He is a member of the YIN IFA Network-Italy committee and author of several publications in Italian and foreign journals on international taxation.
Prior to joining Baker McKenzie, Marco was head of transfer pricing at Ludovici Piccone & Partners in Vienna.
Francesco Pisciotta, managing partner and co-head of the Italian Tax Practice Group commented: "We are really happy to welcome Marco to our team, which has always been at the top of the transfer pricing market in Italy and Europe. His arrival represents a fundamental step in the strengthening plan in an increasingly expanding sector in the tax area but is also likely to generate significant synergies with other practices, typically IP and M&A, but not only them. Furthermore, it strengthens the already large Italian component of high-profile transfer pricing experts in our network, which has its coordination center in Amsterdam. It is a sector in which we strongly believe and we intend to make further investments and welcome new entries in the short term".
