History

The Intercontinental Grouping of Accountants and Lawyers (IGAL) was formed in October 2004 through the merger of two premier business referral networks, both of which have provided exceptional services to their clients for more than 40 years. IGAL is a non-exclusive business network of internationally focused law and accounting firms, which currently boasts more than one hundred member firms worldwide. The continuing growth experienced by IGAL is a testament to the exceptional level of service provided by member firms and our commitment to success.

Collaboration

Although IGAL member firms are independent (with no collective responsibility for advice), regular meetings and referrals between members of both professions help to better serve clients in their international business affairs.

Members have built up close personal and professional relationships, facilitated by two annual events (the International Annual Conference and Midterm Meeting), during which we review and discuss specific issues such as: how to improve our individual and joint services to clients, and how to broaden our scope of collaboration.
