Menzies replaces Vantis as HLB partner

has taken over from Vantis as
UK member firm, but it could soon be joined by
other UK practices.

HLB is planning for the south-east based firm to be the first of a number of
UK practices to join its new-style “federation”.

The network is looking to set up national federations, where regional members
will support each others growth and share best practice.

“We are looking for high-quality regional firms to fill our UK network gaps,
and the candidates we are talking to demonstrate strong local reputations, an
established track record, growth plans and a strong international focus,”
explains James Frost, chief operating officer of HLB International.

Mike Sands, senior partner at Menzies, said: “We’ve been handling an
increasing amount of international business and have been looking to further
develop this side of its business. Given our growth plans, we believe that
membership of HLB International presents a significant opportunity to further
extend the international work that we do, particularly in relation to advising
clients on cross-jurisdictional matters such as transfer pricing and
international tax.”
