Experts from Smith Cooper were among the 138 delegates from 78 independent Accounting and Law firms in 38 countries who were in Madrid for the Alliott Group 2019 Worldwide Conference, our international alliance.

The Alliott Group is an international association of Accounting and Law firms, offering member firms such as ours access to like-minded professional firms from across the world. The affiliated members have expert knowledge of local jurisdiction’s tax, government and legal systems, which allows us to offer clients a truly global solution for those involved in or considering international business activity.

The conference explored a variety of topics including business, economic and political issues such as Brexit, the impact of the China/US trade war on supply chains, slowed growth in Europe and China, and recessionary fears in the US and Hong Kong, and immersed our representatives in global practice groups focused on sharing knowledge and developing joint capability and new opportunities.

Stephen Newman, Partner at Smith Cooper comments: “Our affiliation with the Alliott Group bolsters our understanding of international markets, and that provides us with invaluable access to a global network of leading advisers. The group encompasses over 160 member firms across 170 cities in 70 countries, and through our continued involvement with the Group’s activities, we have access to local experts wherever you are investing, negotiating or selling in the world.”
