Former Andersen group Taxand expands

Taxand Global Alliance, the network of independent tax firms born from the ashes of Andersen Legal, has signed up eight new firms.

The group has signed up new members in Canada, China, Cyprus, Norway, Romania, Portugal, Colombia, and Peru. Taxand was launched 15 months ago in March 2005.

“Taxand’s remarkable growth has exceeded our highest expectations,” said Frederic Donnedieu de Vabres, who coordinates Taxand’s global network from French firm Arsene. “Our success is a testament to the quality of our professionals and our strategic model.”

Taxand now includes 1,500 tax professionals with 259 international tax partners in 30 countries.
