"EsRoBross Cia Ltda. (Ecuador) has grown ever since joining TIAG. The fact that EsRoBross has an international representation, which very few firms in Ecuador have, has been very helpful. By being a member of TIAG, we have increased our chances of winning new clients and projects and have won important projects from local, national and multinational companies. TIAG has expanded our reach, helped us open doors and allowed us to give our clients a greater sense of security. To manage its growth, EsRoBross C­a. Ecuador, recently created a new department named Human Talent, which is dedicated to providing various services related to human resources, including staff selection, recruiting, training, testing and performance evaluation."

LBB & Associates Ltd., LLP (Houston, Texas, USA) received a referral from Felipe Pestana of Grupo Planus (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) concerning a Norwegian client of theirs, who was acquiring an oil-field service company in the Houston, Texas area. Pete Nelson of LBB observed how his firm's relationship with the purchaser evolved quickly based on their prior experience with Mr. Pestana and their knowledge that LBB was also a member of TIAG.

The Norwegian executive also expressed their desire to use TIAG firms wherever their acquisitions may take them. When asked about this recent success, Mr. Pestana said, "This is, after all, the very reason we all have joined TIAG and TAGLaw!"

"In recent months, ESV Chartered Accountants (Sydney, Australia) has reached out and utilized the TIAG alliance globally on behalf of several of our clients. TIAG member firms in the United States, England, Ireland and Japan have all assisted either with direct client inbound referral engagements or specific queries that may lead to further opportunities in the future. We have also provided referral contacts to a major client of the firm across both the TIAG and TAGLaw alliances in China, India, Thailand, Singapore and Japan. Our firm takes great care in the development and nurturing of ongoing client relationships and the ability to refer our clients to firms we know and trust, and who respond in a timely and professional manner. TIAG is a valuable resource for our firm."

"I think the most benefit our firm (Richey May & Co.; Colorado, USA) has received through TIAG so far is the opportunity to interact with other CPA firms similar in size throughout the world, compare notes on best practices and take away new ideas on ways we can improve our practice. Having the ability to offer a global reach through our TIAG associates is a valuable resource we feel we can now offer our current and potential future clients. Finally, I think the opportunity to interact with other professionals throughout the world broadens our horizons and allows us to view the world in a different light."
