Our Philosophy

We do not get lost in endless discussions, we quickly present solutions.

Sound financial health and strong growth for your company – these are our goals for you. We see our role as providing an active consulting service that “thinks ahead”, provides fresh impetus and also opens doors. We attach great importance to trust, independence, reliability and credibility.

We find suitable long-term solutions for your company that meet your requirements – and present them to you in a clear and concise format. We take a fast and pragmatic approach to our work. In urgent cases, we are also available for you after working hours.

Only one point of contact worldwide – this is another of our principles. We want to simplify the process for you as much as possible and ensure you receive the same excellent service in every country in the world.

We think globally and advise locally.

Your MOORE STEPHENS partner can do more for you than a local law firm. Our partners’ strong regional connections are certainly a major asset. However, with over 30,000 well-trained colleagues at their side, they can also help to shape your success from much further afield.

In other words: we are always just as big as you need us to be.

This is precisely the advantage of our network: if we need specialists, we already know exactly who to call. Many of our colleagues are accountants, tax experts or lawyers – and we know almost all of them personally. This allows us to bring proven professionals on board as required.

For example, MOORE STEPHENS International brings together specialists in international accounting standards, international transfer pricing, company valuation as well as experts in international tax and social security law. The result of these partnerships is our exceptionally broad industry and specialist knowledge.

For us, quality is everything.

Which means you can expect the services and recommendations we provide to truly make a difference for you. And we will fulfil this requirement to the letter. Our staff are highly trained and undergo continuous professional development – this applies to all members of the MOORE STEPHENS network, both domestically and abroad. Many of our colleagues also have international experience and additional qualifications in one or more areas. Furthermore, we maintain our high quality standards by adopting a uniform approach to audits and working papers for standard inspections, and also via peer reviews and internal checks.
