Andersen Global has announced that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with Budapest's Szabo Kelemen & Partners Attorneys, making Hungary the 38th country in which Andersen Global offers legal services, and the 46th country in which it is present.
Andersen Global describes itself as "an international association of legally separate, independent member firms comprised of tax and legal professionals around the world. Established in 2013 by U.S. member firm Andersen Tax LLC, Andersen Global now has nearly 4,000 professionals worldwide and a presence in over 129 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms."
Founded over two decades ago, Szabo Kelemen & Partners began as the legal arm of EY in Hungary. "We started as part of the Big Four, and over the last several years, as we’ve watched Andersen Global grow and set the client service bar higher, it was fitting and natural that we join forces to provide our clients with the very best, seamless service across the globe," said Tamas Szabo, Founder and Managing Partner at Szabo Kelemen. "We look forward working closely with our fellow collaborating firm in Budapest, OrienTax, as well as all the Andersen Global member and collaborating firms worldwide, to bring the very best service and solutions to clients."
"Tamas and his team bring the type of expertise, professionalism, and dedication that makes others stand up and notice," said Mark Vorsatz, Andersen Global Chairman and Andersen Tax LLC CEO. "We are continuing to expand our capabilities in this region with the objective of becoming the standout legal and tax practice in the area. The combination of Szabo Kelemen & Partners and OrienTax make a very impressive and competitive platform for Andersen Global in Hungary."
Andersen Global initiated its presence in Turkey in 2017, working with Nazali Tax & Legal (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 17, 2018). Several months later Nazali Tax & Legal officially adopted the Andersen Global name (as reported on November 29, 2017).
