As from the 1st of March 2017, it is a reality: through a French initiative, Arthur Andersen is reconstituted, with 26 offices on 5 continents and in 16 Countries.
Arthur Andersen encompasses offices in the following countries & states from the first day of their launch: United States (Chicago, Houston, New York, San Francisco), Europe (Cyprus, France, Greece), India, Brazil, the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar), Egypt, Indonesia and Nepal. Discussions are underway for setting up offices in China, Canada, Australia, Israel, Russia, Ukraine and in a number of countries in the European Union.
After receiving more than 200 candidacies since the launch of their campaign for affiliation last June, interviews for selecting its first members were conducted in Paris and around the world.
“In each country, we are setting up an inter-professional member firm with high-quality players who are fully up to meeting the current needs of clients with a focus on a vision of the future, while maintaining the spirit and historical values of our historic firm founded in 1913 in Chicago”, said Stéphane Laffont-Réveilhac, Global Managing Partner.
Since 2013, the firm has been reconstructing on the basis of an innovative business model and a sound ethical, governance and legal framework. Arthur Andersen aims to double our presence around the world by the end of 2017.
“Our firm is the rightful holder of the ‘ARTHUR ANDERSEN’ and ‘ANDERSEN’ historical trademarks, logos, visuals and slogans at a global level and are systematically instituting all legal initiatives necessary to defend our network and secure its development”, explains Carlo Brusa, Partner, Spokesperson and Pilot of the Project.
“We have a moral responsibility of success and loyalty towards the values and Alumni, both Partners and employees, of the firm that disappeared from the business world in 2002. Arthur Andersen needs to become once again a synonym for world excellence in Professional Service” concludes Véronique Martinez, Partner.
