The deal follows hot on the heels of a similar agreement reached with Chilean firm Langton Clarke to form the largest accountancy firm in that country, with over 1,000 professional staff.
According to a statement from Ernst & Young, the deal in Argentina has the unanimous approval of partners at both firms.
Jorge Verruno, managing partner of Pistrelli said the firm’s partners were ‘highly satisfied’ with the deal, adding:
‘This integration is a positive move for both firms and will substantially strengthen our position and our capabilities in Argentina and Latin America as a leading professional services firm.’
