Andersen Global builds on LGP for its expansion

As of July 2018, LANSKY, GANZGER + partner (LGP) is collaborating with the international association of legally independent member firms providing worldwide tax and legal advice. Via this global association, our clients have access to more than 3,000 professionals in nearly 40 countries. Additionally, we have expanded our portfolio in the area of tax law. In return, Andersen Global gains access to highly interesting, relatively self-sufficient markets with regional market leaders in the countries of Eastern and Southeast Europe by the collaboration with LGP. “In general, international positioning is a challenge for every law firm; different markets require different work methods. As a lawyer, you can’t dance to the same tune in China, Russia, or Southeast Europe. The cultural differences alone are just too great. We consider ourselves to be pragmatic problem solvers and have opted for an international setup which combines the advantages of our own presence in Vienna, Bratislava and Astana with those of our “best friend model” and a global association”, the founder of the firm, Gabriel Lansky, says about the collaboration with Andersen Global. Managing partner Julia Andras adds: “We are a perfect match. This win-win situation was the deciding factor for the choice of LGP in the search for a collaborating partner in Austria, and Slovakia, and Kazakhstan. We have prevailed in a direct competition with several law firms.”

As of July 2018, Ronald Frankl, Julia Andras, Martin Jacko, Gabriel Lansky, Gerald Ganzger, Štefan Holý und Anna Zeitlinger (not shown in the picture) are collaborating with Andersen Global.

Apart from LGP’s office in Vienna, also the teams from the offices in Bratislava and Astana began collaborating with the international association of lawyers and tax advisers in July 2018. Stefan Holy, managing partner at LGP Bratislava, comments on the collaboration with Andersen Global: “As our Bratislava office has been operating successfully for years in the highly competitive and rapidly developing markets of Central and Eastern Europe, we have gained significant experience in rendering consulting services in an area with robust economic growth. We are happy to share this expertise within the Andersen Global association and make a significant contribution to the further growth of Andersen Global.” Russian lawyer Anna Zeitlinger – she is heading LGP’s Russian & CIS Desk – on the collaboration: “Internationality in the form of a strong presence in the CIS area is our trademark – that’s why we opened our office in Astana in 2013. With Andersen Global, we have a strong partner for expansion and for the extension of our portfolio in the area of tax.”

“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 over the course of the next year. Our group has now grown to close to 500 partners and over 3,500 people”, adds Andersen Tax LLC CEO and Global Chairman, Mark L. Vorsatz. Andersen Global is an association under Swiss law and was founded in 2013 by the US member firm (Andersen Tax LLC). The global association is present in more than 100 locations through its member firms and cooperating firms respectively.

LGP is adding to its partners: Julia Andras is made Managing Partner

Attorney-at-law Julia Andras (38) has joined the management of our law firm since January 2018. Andras, who holds a doctorate in law, specialises in employment law, litigation, tort law, warranty law and general civil law, and has been working at LGP for more than 15 years. She has recently been in the public eye as a result of media interest in her cases – for example, in connection with the process to seek compensation from the region of Upper Austria on behalf of children who had previously been in care, or the legal dispute revolving around a plot of land on the shore of Lake Wörthersee. Away from the glare of the media spotlight, Julia Andras has also offered all-round assistance on economic matters for well-known companies and public institutions, including gambling companies, media institutions, publishing houses and infrastructure service providers. Julia Andras is Secretary-General of the Austrian-Israeli Chamber of Commerce (AICC) and a member of the board of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (IAJLJ), an internationally active NGO based in Israel.

NEW: MAGAZINE LGP NEWS #13 - In focus: competition & anti-trust

This issue shines a spotlight on competition law. Therefore, we are especially delighted that Theodor Thanner, Director-General of the Austrian Federal Competition Authority, was able to participate in a face-to-face interview with us. Business journalist Arne Johannsen discussed whistle-blowers, the risks of a Lufthansa monopoly and the challenges posed by digitalisation with him. Apart from that, we are also turning our gaze to other interesting elements of this complex legal issue as part of our focus on the topic. We will show you how the ban on state subsidies can be a useful tool in competition law, which legal obstacles prevent consumers affected by cartels from asserting claims for compensation, and what the most recent amendment to competition law will actually mean in practice. Now for a change of scenery: did you know that the global translation industry turns over around 45 billion US dollars per annum? Despite this, many language professionals feel that they are being discriminated against in their quest for fair pay and fair working conditions as a result of disputes relating to anti-trust matters.
