Here are just a few examples of how LEA Global has helped companies like yours:
When a middle market firm set out to conduct business internationally, it initially found it difficult to establish connections with local accounting, banking and attorneys. Reaching out to another LEA Global member, it was able to quickly build new relationships and gain local familiarity. This helped the company cut through the red tape involved in setting up business internationally. It also reassured the firm that LEA Global would provide them with the necessary, specialized international knowledge they needed.
A U.S. provider of sophisticated electronics equipment faced a multimillion-dollar assessment for uncollected sales tax in the state of Washington. Its Oregon-based LEA Global firm reached out to a fellow member firm in Washington who used a past case to convince the states auditor to drop the assessment altogether.
When a company with subsidiaries around the world wanted to outsource its tax function, it considered an LEA Global firm and a Big 4 accounting firm. To ensure it could beat competition, the LEA Global firm sought support from fellow members located at the same location as the company's subsidiaries. By including a wider network of firms, it could demonstrate an expansive reach, customized approach and diversified exposure. It turned out to be the right call, as the company decided its complete global outsourcing solutions should be provided by the LEA Global firm.
LEA has given us the capability of servicing clients worldwide and the confidence of knowing that they will be served with the same level of quality and dedication that we expect from our team at KLR. The friendships with other professionals that I have developed over the years transcend business and have resulted in meaningful relationships.
