Because of the misleading, defamatory, denigrating and outrageous statements recently made by ANDERSEN TAX LLC to the media and to our clients and contacts, we have no other choice than respond publicly and in the strongest terms.
Once again, we affirm that we are the sole owners of the worldwide rights on the Arthur Andersen and Andersen brands, slogans and logos. Public database, in the US and throughout the world, confirm our rights at a global level. Furthermore, in 2015, ANDERSEN TAX LLC contacted us in order to buy back our rights.
Today, we are very proud to have nothing to do with ANDERSEN TAX LLC and their outdated practices. Such behavior is clearly contrary to the Arthur Andersen values and shows that these individuals on the rope are panicked and unscrupulous. They are blinded by their ego, arrogance, lies and greed.
Civil and criminal courts are currently investigating against ANDERSEN TAX LLC and all their accomplices for facts that may be considered, among others, as organized fraud.
Since 2013, we have been building a serious and honest project, with all the necessary guarantees, especially on the legal and ethical levels. We are aware of being responsible towards the Alumni, for whom we have the utmost respect, and the historical values of the network. Many former Partners have already joined our network and are supporting us.
During our press conference, which will be held in New York on March 15, we will answer all your questions. We are not afraid: our rights are guaranteed, our behavior is humble and our ethics are intransigent.
Arthur Andersen deserves our struggle.
Arthur Andersen is coming back, stronger than ever.
