Nicola Saccardo said:

“I am delighted to be joining Charles Russell Speechlys. The Firm has an outstanding reputation and is a natural fit for me, as I have known the team for some time now. I very much look forward to being a part of the Firm’s approach to the delivery of international private client tax services.”
