London based UK inward investment leader, Fitzgerald & Law (F&L), is proud to announce its partnership with US public accounting and professional services firm, EKS&H, to provide complementary services which 'bridge the gap' between the US and the UK.

The relationship is designed to help support companies expanding into the UK or US market by providing access to experts who can advise on all aspects of setting up and operating a business on either side of 'the pond'.

Companies making the leap across the Atlantic can expect a number of legal and accounting differences compared to their home country. Without comprehensive local expertise and technical knowledge of international rules and regulations, many experience delays in setting up as they try to overcome barriers.

F&L's Jonathan Boyfield commented: "We are really pleased to be working closely with such a trusted partner. We've seen a huge increase in global expansion over the past five years, which will only continue as businesses seek to enter the global market. EKS&H is incredibly valuable in supporting our UK clients' set up in the US."

EKS&H's Ken Berkeley said: "The US and the UK are both exciting places to do business - sharing similar cultural values and a number of business practices - so the alliance seems only natural. We're excited about the future for both firms and, most importantly, for our mutual clients who can expect real value from the relationship."

About EKS&H

In 1978, the founders of EKS&H set out to build a different kind of professional services company. They envisioned a firm that would be accountable for their clients' vital interests - a place where employees can do their very best work and have fun along the way.

EKS&H is uniquely positioned to serve the complete needs of their clients - from audit and assurance to tax and consulting services that address business-critical issues. For over 20 years, EKS&H has been assisting US and UK clients with their transatlantic business operations. EKS&H has supported clients with transatlantic business structures, mergers and acquisitions, company creation, tax planning and compliance, audit/assurance, state and local issues, transfer pricing, bookkeeping, payroll, banking, IT and business consulting. EKS&H's goal for each of its clients is to be a trusted business advisor.
