GGI awards: 2021 Member Firms of the Year selected

Three GGI member firms received the GGI Member Firm of the Year Award at GGI’s World Conference 2021 ONLINE. The firms were nominated by fellow GGI member firms and selected by a panel of individuals who serve on GGI’s Executive Committee (ExCom) and executive management team. The awards acknowledge innovation, achievement, and strategy in members’ business sectors, honouring firms that display extraordinary progress and vision within their industries. To select winners, the panel assessed each nominee along a rigorous set of criteria, including reliability, professionalism, response behaviour, reputation, and client services. We are very pleased to present the three winners of the GGI Member Firm of the Year Award 2021, in alphabetical order by company name:

Jakoby Dr. Baumhof – Wirtschaftsprüfer Steuerberater Rechtsanwälte

Being chosen as a GGI Member Firm of the Year 2021 is an honour and a challenge at the same time. This special award from our peers makes us very proud and optimistic for the future. We especially thank the fantastic GGI team for its great support and personal commitment.

Our relationship with GGI began more than 20 years ago with the European Conference in Zurich, when we joined GGI as one of the first multidisciplinary firms with chartered accountants, tax consultants and lawyers. Since then, GGI has grown to one of the largest global alliances based on quality and trust.

At the same time, Jakoby Dr. Baumhof has become a mid-sized firm with offces in the greater areas of Nuremberg and Munich, both located in southern Germany.

It is a privilege to play an active part within GGI, participating in international conferences and practice groups. We are especially proud to have hosted the German-Speaking Chapter in Rothenburg and co-hosted the European Conference in Munich. Through GGI we work together with many colleagues from all over the world for the benefit of our clients. We also support clients of other GGI members doing business in Germany.

It is work and friendship that make GGI so unique as a professional alliance. Let’s stay connected in this special way.

M L Bhuwania and Co LLP

All of us at MLB are thrilled to receive the coveted GGI Member Firm of the Year 2021 award. We thank our fellow GGI member firms for their trust and confidence in our firm. It has been a pleasure and honour to be associated with GGI, for which we thank the management and the ExCom of GGI. Their continuous support and cooperation since we joined GGI in 2010 has enabled us to fulfil and exceed the expectations of our clients, as well as of GGI member firms and their clients.

We deeply appreciate the personal and professional relationships we have built over the years through the enriching conferences and meetings organised by GGI. We owe our gratitude to Peter Kaeser, who has been a guiding star throughout our GGI journey, and to Oliver Biernat, who gave MLB its “first break” at my maiden GGI World Conference in Beijing and nominated me to be the Regional Chair Asia-Pacific of the International Taxation Practice Group (ITPG). Since that day, there has been no looking back and we hope to continue and be better than before!

We look forward to strengthening our relationship with GGI member firms and to meeting more of you in person at future GGI conferences.

Welborn Sullivan Meck & Tooley, P.C.

We at Welborn Sullivan Meck & Tooley, P.C. are proud and honoured to be named as a GGI Member Firm of the Year for 2021. Since our firm joined GGI, we have built strong, long-term relationships with many other GGI firms. When we were initially considering joining GGI, we were impressed by the high degree of enthusiasm that other GGI members have for the organisation. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, that enthusiasm continues.

GGI has been instrumental to us in forming a global network of trusted advisors for Welborn and our clients. The experience we have had working with other GGI firms has always been outstanding. Our clients have operations both in the United States and worldwide, so GGI has been instrumental in allowing us to serve our clients’ needs confidently, wherever they may be. Additionally, we have found GGI to be an invaluable resource for discussing best practices for law firm management.

Thank you to the other GGI member firms and the GGI team for recognising Welborn as a Member Firm of the Year. We hope to see you all in person very soon!
