Andersen Global is proud to announce an expanded presence in the Middle East by way of a Collaboration Agreement with Alem & Associates, the leading law firm in Lebanon. Alem & Associates is headquartered in Beirut, but also has offices in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The firm has over 40 personnel in Beirut, and about 10 in both Riyadh and Dubai.
Alem & Associates was founded in 1953 and is led by Senior Partner, Mohamed Y. Alem. The firm advises clients throughout the world but with a focus on the Middle East. Alem & Associates’ legal practice areas include corporate law, tax, mergers & acquisitions, real estate and construction, capital markets, employment and social security, banking & finance, energy and environment, aviation, intellectual property, franchising, technology, media and entertainment, white collar defense and government investigations, litigation and international arbitration.
“Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates are key markets as we expand our platform and continue to focus on best-in-class solutions in the Middle East. A firm with the quality of Alem & Associates gives us a strong foothold and puts us in a lead position in the region,” commented Global Chairman and Andersen Tax LLC CEO, Mark Vorsatz. “Mohamed is one of the top lawyers in Lebanon and not only do I look forward to working with him and his team, but I also hope that he will play a strong leadership role in establishing our practice in the Middle East.”
“Providing a tailor-made approach to the needs of our clients and the best legal solutions possible are our top priorities. Working with professionals that share this mindset is very important to us,” said Mohamed Alem. “Our collaboration with Andersen Global will yield great benefits, as we will be able to deliver a combination of tax and legal services that are not confined geographically.”

Established in 2013 by U.S. member firm Andersen Tax LLC, Andersen Global now has more than 2,500 professionals worldwide and a presence in over 84 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
