Andersen Global announces its entrance into the Gambian market by way of a Collaboration Agreement with Fajara Chambers, a law firm based in Fajara, continuing its rapid expansion in Africa which serves as an integral part of the organization’s global presence.

For more than 25 years, the firm – led by Managing Partners Ann Rivington and Malick F. M’bai, along with a staff of 11 professionals – has operated as a full-service law firm with industry competence in litigation, general business law, telecommunications, real estate, banking and tourism. Fajara Chambers has also been consistently recognized by Chambers Global.

It is a privilege for Fajara Chambers to collaborate with Andersen Global,” Malick said. “This collaboration reflects our commitment to providing high-caliber legal services to private as well as corporate and commercial clients, and our willingness to serve their interests not only in the West African sub-region but throughout the international business community. We are looking forward to working with like-minded individuals and continuing to build a practice that is a formidable competitor in the Gambian market.”

Andersen Global Chairman and Andersen CEO Mark Vorsatz added, “Our Africa platform is already one of the largest providers for legal services on the continent and building a benchmark organization in the region is a key element in our strategy. The addition of Fajara Chambers enhances our global offering significantly. Malick and his team bring substantial experience and expertise, and their commitment to independence and stewardship will further enhance our capabilities in The Gambia and beyond.”

Andersen Global is an international association of legally separate, independent member firms comprised of tax and legal professionals around the world. Established in 2013 by U.S. member firm Andersen Tax LLC, Andersen Global now has more than 5,000 professionals worldwide and a presence in over 177 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
