Announced toward the end of last year, union between French-origin international accounting and consulting network Mazars and leading US counterpart Forvis is now official, creating a new $5 billion global player.

Forvis Mazars will operate as a ‘two-firm’ network, meaning the two companies will work together integrally under one brand name, but formally have not merged into a single entity.

Hervé Hélias, chairman of the Group Executive Board of Forvis Mazars, said that the joining of forces will provide the scale and reach to serve customers worldwide. Together, the two organizations will also be better positioned to respond to the changing professional services landscape.

“This is a momentous and exciting time for our clients, our profession and our people. Mazars and Forvis have worked together for over 20 years and share a commitment to delivering an outstanding client experience. We are well positioned to deliver excellence, everywhere, under a single global brand,” Hélias said.

Speaking on the merger with a regional perspective, Mohammed Abuhijleh, Managing Partner & CEO of Forvis Mazars in UAE & Oman, stated: “The formation of Forvis Mazars marks a transformative chapter for the professional services industry, not only globally but also for our region. This two-firm network amplifies our capability to deliver world-class services with a more profound local understanding and presence.”

“Clients in the UAE will benefit from our enhanced resources, diverse expertise, and the integrated approach that Forvis Mazars embodies. I am excited about the opportunities this presents for our clients and our teams, and I am confident that we will set new benchmarks in the industry.”
