The article reports that Studio Legale Tonucci is in advanced merger talks with Italy's pre-eminent IP practice with a view to creating one of the country's major independent firms. The full-service firm is in the final stages of due diligence with Franzosi Dal Negro Pensato Setti. Led by iconic managing partner Mario Franzosi, Franzosi has forged a reputation as one of Italy's finest IP boutiques. The merger with Franzosi would accord Tonucci critical mass in Milan for the first time. Mario Tonucci was a founding partner of Gianni Origoni Grippo & Partners before leaving the firm in 1993 to form his own practice.
