Andersen Global Expands in Europe with LANSKY, GANZGER + partner


Andersen Global expanded its presence in Europe this week through a
collaboration with LANSKY, GANZGER + partner (LGP), one of the largest
independent law firms in Central Europe. The Collaboration Agreement
includes three related entities located in Vienna, Austria; Bratislava,
Slovakia; and Astana, Kazakhstan. LGP was founded by Gabriel Lansky and
Gerald Ganzger.

The firm advises companies and public institutions in all areas of
business. Since the appointment of lawyer Julia Andras as a partner in
January 2018, the management of LGP consists of four partners in Vienna,
four partners in Bratislava and three partners in Astana. The firm

law, litigation and arbitration, criminal law, compliance, IP,
environmental law, and anti-trust and competition law. Other services
include tax planning relating to personal residential taxes, developing
tax-optimized holding structures, and international tax planning.

"We are pleased to add such a high quality international firm to the
organization. Austria is a critical gateway to Central and Eastern
Europe and it is our expectation that we will work with our new
colleagues to build out our footprint in the region over the course of
the next year," said Mark Vorsatz, Global Chairman and Andersen Tax LLC
CEO. "This now brings us to 46 locations in Europe, 40 countries
globally and legal services in 30 countries. Our group has now grown
close to 500 partners and over 3,500 people."

"In general, international positioning is a challenge for every law
firm, as different markets require different work methods. We consider
ourselves to be pragmatic problem solvers and are excited to collaborate
with Andersen Global, which combines the advantages of our presence in
Vienna, Bratislava, and Astana with the global association's footprint,"
the founder of the firm, Gabriel Lansky, says about the collaboration
with Andersen Global.

Managing Partner Julia Andras added, "It is a win-win situation for us
as we looked for a cooperation partner in Austria and Slovakia. Our
clients will have access to over 3,000 international professionals via
