- International staff secondments
- To maximise our client's business and profit opportunities,
- To service clients world-wide, and
- To broaden the scope of our professional services.
- In the late 1980's there were few independent associations other than the Big 8 or the second tier firms. We were attracted to GMN International because GMN International's associate firms are legally independent and have a similar mindset to us.
- We were particularly interested in the partners within the firms and how we could relate and access their experience and technical abilities.
- The ability to telephone a colleague in another jurisdiction and discuss a client's affairs promptly and professionally is invaluable.
- This was important to us because these colleagues would be dealing with our clients. If we felt uncomfortable with the people then how would our clients react? On meeting the people behind GMN International we identified quite quickly they would fit perfectly with our firm.
