Specialist tax law firm Andersen Global has confirmed it will now have two new Spanish offices – in Madrid and Barcelona – following the hire of a 25-strong team from Global Abogados.
Among the lawyers joining Andersen Global in Spain will be three Global Abogados partners – Antonio de Weest Prat Jorba, Álvaro Gámez Serracarabassa and Jose María Rebollo Blasco.
Global Abogados provides tax and legal advice to individuals, families and corporate clients on matter relating to international tax, tax compliance and consulting, commercial law, M&A, labour law and bankruptcy.
With the addition of two locations in Spain, Andersen Global now has 41 international offices with over 1,100 professionals worldwide. Andersen Global was founded by Andersen Tax in the United States in 2013. Andersen Tax was established in 2002 by 23 former Arthur Andersen partners.
“Establishing a presence in Spain furthers our European growth strategy,” said Mark Vorsatz, CEO of Andersen Tax. “Global Abogados is a true fit for our culture and our dedication to providing best-in-class client service – this addition reinforces our commitment to ensuring our clients receive the highest quality tax and legal advice throughout the world.”
De Weest Prat Jorba, office managing partner for Global Abogados said: “With an already robust association in Europe, Andersen Global allows us to better serve the growing international needs of our clients.
“We are looking forward to working with a firm that shares the values we treasured at Arthur Andersen and maintains the same level of commitment to providing quality client service.”
