We are Engineers of Patrimonies, not only deep connoisseur of trust law, but experts in estates organising and planning as well.
Our vocation for estate organising and planning has deep roots back in time.
At mid 90’s most people in Italy ignored the existence of trusts. Andrea Vicari, founding partner of Vicari & Associati, driven by the desire to go deeper into both the technical and theoretical profiles of trust law, moved to the United States of America, where he accomplished a master (International Tax Program – Harvard) first and became Doctor of Juridical Science (Cornell) later.

Scientific research has then became applied research.
When the first kernel of Vicari & Associati has been formed back in 2001, these experiences have constituted the foundations for today’s professional practice.
Since that moment, many difficulties have been faced, many estate planning solutions have been realised, many innovative application of trust have been developed, many successes in legal claims re asset protection structures before both national judges and national and international arbitrators have been achieved.

Trust law has remained a pillar of our practice, so much that Andrea Vicari contributed to the drafting of the first law on trusts written in Italian in 2005, the law of the Republic of San Marino, and then he has co-drafted with Professor Maurizio Lupoi its full reform in 2010; Andrea Vicari also collaborated to the drafting of the Constitutional Law for the establishment of the Court for trusts and fiduciary relationships of the Republic of San Marino.

Over time, our practice has taught us to master all the tools of estate planning, consciously developing a working technique unique in the Italian landscape.
Pausing to reflect on the progress we made, we have realised that we have gone further than planned: we aspired to be best experts on trusts, we have became Engineers of Patrimonies, experts in estate organising and planning.
