Andersen Global has initiated its presence in Turkey by way of a collaboration agreement with Nazali Tax & Legal, a tax and legal consultancy firm founded in 2015 by Managing Partner Ersin Nazali with locations in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, and Bursa.
According to the Andersen Global website, it "was established in 2014 as the international entity surrounding the development of a seamless professional services model providing best in class tax and legal services around the world." An Andersen Global press release announced that "the addition of Nazali Tax & Legal as a collaborating firm of Andersen Global is part of Andersen’s current strategy of building out a larger platform in the region."
“Our main philosophy has always been and will continue to be the establishment and maintenance of a trust-based relationship with our clients where we can provide objective, best-in-class service," said Ersin Nazali. "This collaboration will allow us to combine resources and provide even more seamless, outstanding service globally. In addition, this collaboration is a very significant indicator of the international confidence and interest in the Turkish economy for the forthcoming period. Turkey is a center for tax and legal services provided to Middle Eastern, Gulf and Central Asian countries, so the services offered to our local and international clients and countries will be diversified and increased in this context.”
“The expansion into Turkey is significant and also strategic because of the country’s geographic position between Europe and Asia,” commented Andersen Tax CEO, Mark Vorsatz. “Their firm’s immense growth and development over a short period of time is indicative of the entrepreneurial spirit of Ersin and the professionals at Nazali Tax & Legal, and the high caliber of individuals who are joining us.”
Nazali joins Andersen Global with over 60 tax and legal professionals and expects to double in size over the next twelve months. Andersen Global now has more than 2,000 professionals worldwide and a presence in 68 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
