The article reports that Hammonds is close to reaching an agreement with its dissenting Italian partners, but must reach profit per point levels of £12,000 to ensure that its profitable Hammonds Rossotto branch remains with the firm. Italian managing partner Ricardo Rossotto had delayed the full integration of the 2002 merger between Hammonds and Rossotto e Associati. The transition agreement, currently in draft form, will see Rossotto and his partners stay with the firm for a further two years. But if the £12,000 per point mark is not reached within 12 months, the Italians are reserving the option to pull out. After an analysis of the firm, partners were asked to examine the ways it can best deliver what clients want.
