Andersen Global welcomes the addition of Olleros Abogados, a Spanish firm with locations in both Madrid and Valencia. They will join Andersen Global as a member firm, officially adopting the Andersen name and combining forces with the existing Barcelona team with whom they already share a close relationship. Together, they will operate as Andersen Tax & Legal in Spain.
Olleros Abogados joins Andersen Global with nearly 160 professionals and 30 years in the legal sector. In 2016, Olleros Abogados increased both turnover and headcount by 20%, becoming one of the leading Spanish firms in consolidated growth within the legal market.
"I began my professional career at Arthur Andersen in Madrid in the tax, legal, and foreign investment departments, and later founded Olleros Abogados with the goal of offering the most innovative and comprehensive solutions for our clients. A decade at Andersen instilled important principles in me such as transparency and high caliber client service capabilities that remained strong at Olleros Abogados and will continue at Andersen Tax & Legal," said Jaime Olleros, the Managing Partner of Andersen Tax & Legal. "I have strong relationships with many of the former and current Andersen Partners and am excited to join the Andersen family again."
"The Partners and professionals at Olleros exemplify the attributes that I hope for in my colleagues, and formally joining together is the logical next step in seamlessly integrating with other locations in Spain and globally. The addition of Olleros will bring great depth to the Andersen Tax & Legal team," commented Managing Partner of Andersen Tax & Legal in Barcelona, Toni de Weest Prat.
The professionals at Andersen Tax & Legal provide both legal and tax advice, including corporate compliance, business law, regulatory, litigation, arbitration, labor law, transaction services and restructuring and intellectual property law, to individuals and corporate clients.
"Jaime and his team represent the best qualities of our culture. Through the addition of synergistic individuals, we are continuing to strengthen our capabilities in Spain as we add groups that embrace our core values," added Andersen Tax CEO, Mark Vorsatz.
With the addition of these Andersen Tax & Legal locations in Madrid and Valencia, Andersen Global now has more than 1,800 professionals and a presence in 59 locations worldwide.
