ex-Andersen Tax Partners join Alvarez & Marsal

Wednesday, 12 November 2008


Alvarez & Marsal Taxand has appointed a global advisory board as it looks to expand.

The US firm is looking to get a foothold in the UK tax market, taking up where Chiltern left off in providing tax advice independent of audit conflicts of interest.

Former Arthur Andersen senior tax partners Harry Ruffalo, Andre Fogarasi and David Murby will form the new board.

As senior advisers, they will advise the firm on global marketing, training initiatives and delivering outstanding client service, the firm said.

'We are thrilled to have Harry, Andre and David, who were instrumental in the growth and success of Arthur Andersen's tax business during its heyday, working with us,' said Robert N. Lowe JR, head of Alvarez & Marsal Taxand.

'A&M's tax advisory business in the US and UK and across the globe through the Taxand network continues to experience exponential growth due to the demand by corporations for independent tax advice. This global advisory board lends a practiced, insightful point-of-view on executing our strategy of providing the market with a high quality fifth global tax firm.'

'The experience these individuals bring to our firm is invaluable,' said David Pert, head of Alvarez & Marsal Taxand UK. 'Their passion for the tax business is inspiring to all of our people.'

SG comment: This is definitely a firm to watch. They have recently taken on a number of ex-Arthur Andersen tax partners in the US and now the UK. Considering how Arthur Andersen built a Top 6 accounting firm from nothing in the 1960s through to the 2002, this could be the next Andersen type firm in the making.
