Andersen Global expands to South Africa

Andersen Global expands to South Africa

Andersen Global has signed a collaboration agreement with boutique firm Tabacks Attorneys in Johannesburg. This first agreement may just be the beginning of the association’s expansion in South Africa.

Tabacks has a team of 27 lawyers who offer advice on tax matters, commercial law, environmental regulations and employment law. Chairman David Woodhouse has overseen the practice since 2016, while Mervyn Taback and Catharine Keene manage the team’s tax focus.

Past clients include Honda and a range of publicly listed companies in sectors like mining, construction, explosives and the energy industry, including not just oil and gas but renewables.

Andersen Global has a presence in more than 10 African countries including Angola, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique and Nigeria. The association has been looking to establish a South African presence for some time, particularly after the Gupta scandal rocked KPMG.
