Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the alliance has experienced its third successive quarter of expansion as it seeks to close the gaps in its global coverage and achieve its objective of becoming a ‘Top 5 global multidisciplinary alliance’ by 2025.

In the last quarter, the following 13 firms joined AGA in 12 countries: K&M Law (Cameroon), Proximo Auditores (Chile), Amaya & Guevara (El Salvador, accountants), H.Y. Leung & Co (Hong Kong, lawyers), BHSM (Ireland, lawyers), Ritz Attorneys (Malawi, lawyers), Trpnoski Law (North Macedonia), Galeano & Asociados (Panama, accountants), GPS Legal (Thailand), Advice KB (Sweden, tax advisors), Rum for Tax & Financial Consulting (Jordan) and SBC Solutions (Papua New Guinea, accountants).

This latest spike in growth follows record-breaking first and second quarters in 2020 in which 20 firms joined the alliance and increases the alliance’s global coverage to 185 member firms in 225 cities in 80 countries.

Giles Brake, COO, comments:

“We are delighted that so many outstanding independent firms have chosen to align with our global kinship of firms. While the business environment remains challenging, we are keeping alliance members connected to relevant information and to each other to ensure they have the resources to steer their clients out of the crisis and into the new normal. High performing firms recognise that the continuing growth of the alliance will unlock new opportunities for them and deliver greater value by enabling them to solve more problems for their clients. Our fast growth is a clear indicator of our success and that our members like the direction we are going in. We will continue to target prospective member firms who will not only plug a gap in our coverage, but also play a proactive role in generating activity out of their region.”

Colin Farmer, Worldwide Chair, adds:

“Our growing reputation is fuelling our growth. Indeed, much of our success stems from whom we have chosen to align ourselves with- professional firms want to be associated with other expanding and progressive firms and be part of an alliance that is proactively developing its brand and value proposition. I am delighted that we are managing our growth in the right way and are sustaining the quality of the services we provide. We are excited about our future and are very much on track to establish AGA as the international alliance of choice for progressive professional firms.”

Q4 has already started well for AGA with law firm CQ Legal & Consulting joining the alliance in Ghana. The alliance anticipates appointing further firms in 2020 that can meet the membership criteria.
