Andersen Global announced a collaboration agreement with Mondon Conseil International, a notable Western African tax consulting, legal, accounting and financial advisory services firm based in Ivory Coast.
The agreement further establishes Andersen Global’s footprint in Africa. The global organization now has a presence in nine locations since entering the African tax and legal market less than two years ago.
“I started my career over 30 years ago at Arthur Andersen, so my values of transparency and seamless, best-in-class service are already well-aligned with Andersen Global’s core values. It is only fitting that the growing market leader of tax and legal services in the region collaborate with Andersen Global, a name I respect,” said Pacôme Mondon, Founder and Managing Partner of Mondon Conseil International.
Founded in 2001 with the goal of becoming the premier tax firm in the region, Mondon Conseil International advises local and international clients on fiscal and business law issues including trade, labor, and foreign exchange regulations, and works with CFOs, treasurers and other financial leaders on transitioning to the new accounting requirements introduced by regulators and tax administrations.
“Pacôme and his team at Mondon Conseil are paramount to the growth of our global organization in West Africa. Their current firm is already larger than other practices in the region and Pacôme and his colleagues can provide leadership in supporting the French-speaking sector of Africa,” said Mark Vorsatz, Andersen Global Chairman and Andersen Tax LLC CEO. “On top of expanding legal capabilities in the region with Mondon Conseil, we have the added pleasure of welcoming an Arthur Andersen alumnus back into the family and I expect that Pacôme will be a key player in the expansion in West Africa.”
Andersen Global is an international association of legally separate, independent member firms comprised of tax and legal professionals around the world. Established in 2013 by U.S. member firm Andersen Tax LLC, Andersen Global now has nearly 4,000 professionals worldwide and a presence in over 122 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
