Andersen Global has announced plans to launch a presence in Uganda signalling its fourth location in Africa - one day after revealing it was opening an office in Venice-Mestre and expanding its office space in Milan.
The association is making the move by way of a Collaboration Agreement with Ligomarc Advocates, a financial and corporate tax and legal firm and the firm is led by Managing Partner, Kabiito Karamagi. ‘Integrity, excellence, and putting the client at the center have always been of paramount importance to us, and our collaboration with Andersen Global will allow us to ensure our clients receive the best-in-class service internationally,’ commented Kabiito Karamagi. ‘The team at Andersen shares our values of outstanding, seamless client service and independence - this is a natural fit.’ Ligomarc Advocates was founded as a sole practice over 15 years ago by Ruth Sebatindira, but later became a partnership when Kabiito Karamagi joined. The partnership subsequently expanded to include Joshua Odoc Ogwal and Olivia Kyarimpa Matovu, both highly respected finance lawyers in Uganda.
National and International clients
The firm offers a broad range of national and international legal services for both individuals and corporations such as insolvency, banking, corporate governance, energy and mining, insurance, and regulatory compliance, as well as tax advisory services such as transfer pricing, reorganisation, and tax-related controversies.
'An easy choice'
Global chairman and Andersen Tax CEO, Mark Vorsatz, added: ‘This collaboration positions us to provide even more comprehensive solutions to clients and expanded coverage in Africa, particularly in the Eastern region. Ligomarc was a very easy choice, and the culture and chemistry with our new colleagues is extremely positive. We expect to continue building our platform in Africa quickly over the course of the next few years and I am very optimistic about the outstanding team we are putting together in Africa as we continue to add key practices and leadership.’
