Hi Laura,

for Germany Simon-Kucher & Partners is the go-to address for marketing, sales and pricing! They have been identified by numerous business journals (e.g. brand eins, managermagazin) as hidden champion - although the consultancy is not as "hidden" anymore.

You can find some impresion of there ranking here:

Also, they have an office in Milan.

Best regards

Jakob
