Antonio Papi Rossi was previously partner of an internationally oriented law firm. In January 2018 a new partner of primary importance joins the team: Ada Lucia De Cesaris. She has in an in-depth knowledge of issues pertaining the environment and urban planning, and is back to a law firm at the end of her appointment as Vice Mayor of the City of Milan and urban planning councillor.
