Firms Thumbnail

Andersen Global has signed a collaborative agreement with Ligomarc Advocates, a financial and corporate tax law firm, based in Kampala, Uganda. This is the fourth addition to the Andersen Tax brand in Africa.

Ligomarc Advocates was founded in 2003 by Ruth Sebatindira. The firm later became a partnership between Sebatindira and Kabiito Karamagi, who joined the practice in 2006. The team grew further with highly respected finance lawyers Joshua Ogwal and Olivia Kyarimpa joining in the years since.

The firm specialises in finance and advises national and international companies on issues such as corporate governance, regulatory compliance, tax controversy and transfer pricing.

Andersen Global now has more than 2,500 professionals worldwide and a presence in more than 78 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
