Taylor English Expands International Reach As Member Of Alliott Group

February 28, 2012

After a rigorous screening process, Atlanta law firm Taylor English Duma LLP has been selected as the only Georgia firm to be admitted to the prestigious Alliott Group, an international alliance of independent accounting, law and consulting firms. Taylor English’s affiliation with the group will enable the firm to significantly expand its geographic scope both in the United States and throughout the world.

Alliott Group was founded in 1979 as an organization for like-minded professionals to build alliances and network with firms worldwide to expand their scope of service. The group strives to create a culture of collaboration and a network for referrals to enable smaller firms to offer the resources of a larger firm while sustaining their independence and flexibility. The group is made up of over 170 member firms from nearly 60 countries, with representation in every continent. Before being admitted, each firm must undergo a thorough screening process, and once accepted the member firm is re-evaluated throughout its membership to ensure that it maintains operation standards and meets Alliott Group criteria. As a result of this extensive application process and on-going assessment, Alliott Group members are recognized as among the most respected and forward-thinking firms in their countries.

“We are delighted that Taylor English has become a member of the Alliott Group," said James Hickey, Worldwide Executive Director of Alliott Group. “The profile of our members are firms that are owned or managed by people who have come from big firm backgrounds who provide a client-focused service and are trusted business advisors of their clients. Taylor English will play a pivotal role in helping us develop our presence in North America. More importantly, through their membership, the firm will be better placed to support the business interests of their clients on a national and international level.”

Taylor English founding partner Joseph M. English says of the firm’s new affiliation, “We are honored to be a member of such an original and renowned organization. We recognize that our clients increasingly have business and legal needs that reflect the global economic realities of today and tomorrow, and we have responded. We look forward to providing greater value by expanding our global footprint, while continuing to forge the close partnerships that have made our firm so unique.”
