Vantis demise creates UK vacancy with international network

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.
