About me

After studying law and qualifying as a lawyer, I obtained the federal diploma as tax expert in Zurich. Since 2006 I have been director and, since 2008, partner of Fiduciaria Mega in Lugano. Previously, I was head of EY’s tax consulting division in Ticino and worked in the tax division of PWC and Banca del Gottardo. I assist SMEs and their owners, as well as private individuals, who, due to particular needs related to their personal situation or assets, require accurate and individualised advice in tax and legal matters. I also have experience in tax litigation and VAT consulting. I am a member of several boards of directors and of non-profit foundations.
