HLB International, the network left without a UK presence following the administration and sale of Vantis, has revealed it is already in discussion with potential replacements.

In a statement the network said it hoped to go further than find a firm to fill the hole left by Vantis and will work to set up a new "federation" of UK firms.

Cheif executive Rob Tautges, said: "It is our highest priority to ensure stability in the UK and to protect our member firm interests. We have been monitoring the situation for months and are currently in discussion with several prospective firms in the UK."

Tautges said talks with a number of firms across the UK were going well. The network is ranked number 17 among the world's Top 30 networks with revenue of around $1.7bn (£1.1bn). This was down around 7% on the previous year.
