PwC has agreed to an alliance with U.S. immigration specialist law firm Fragomen in one of the most significant examples to date of the Big Four joining forces with a law firm.
The alliance between PwC UK and Fragomen—which has more than 50 offices around the world and posted revenue of $577 million (£441 million) for 2017—will hand PwC a major foothold in the U.S. market, where the New York-based firm has 16 offices across all major financial centers.
The deal brings together two of the world’s top providers in the immigration sphere and will see the firms team up to jointly pitch for work from multinational clients. Significantly, the relationship will also enable shared clients to draw on PwC’s complementary services in tax, Social Security and global mobility consulting.
