The fall of Arthur Andersen in 2002 forged a fresh opportunity for its private client department to capitalise on its HNW specialism. The team, made up of 23 of the former Big Five company’s top partners, formed Andersen Global to advise top entrepreneurs, business owners and ‘the early founders of some of the really big names in Silicon Valley’.
At its heart, Andersen is a private client business. ‘Everything we do revolves around giving our private clients the best possible experience,’ Julian Nelberg says. ‘As a result, we are far better positioned than the “Big Four” Accountancy firms to serve UHNW clients.’
UK head of private client, Nelberg oversees an entirely dual-qualified team helping Andersen’s US clients with UK connections and business interests. His client base includes entertainers, fund managers, sports-people, entrepreneurs and wealthy international families. He advises on complex cross-border tax issues, particularly the interaction of the UK and US systems. He also acts as a tax expert witness in the family courts.
Prior to launching in the UK in 2019, Nelberg trained from 1998 at Arthur Andersen, where he spent five years, followed by five years at KPMG and a decade at PwC.
