KPMG international operates as a network of member firms offering audit, tax and advisory services. We work closely with our clients, helping them to mitigate risks and grasp opportunities.
Member firms’ clients include business corporations, governments and public sector agencies and not-for-profit organizations. They look to KPMG for a consistent standard of service based on high order professional capabilities, industry insight and local knowledge.
KPMG member firms can be found in 155 countries. Collectively they employ more than 162,000 people across a range of disciplines.
Sustaining and enhancing the quality of this professional workforce is KPMG’s primary objective. Wherever we operate we want our firms to be no less than the professional employers of choice.
We contribute to the effective functioning of international capital markets. We support reforms that strengthen the markets’ credibility and their social responsibility. We believe that similar reform must extend to the professional realm.
We represent public and private companies and other business organizations in every major industry in cases ranging from contract disputes and regulatory matters to class action lawsuits, antitrust matters and other complex commercial and criminal litigation. Katten attorneys have the depth and experience to handle, and if necessary, to litigate through appeal, virtually any type of case. We regularly try Òbet the companyÓ cases to verdict, and appear in federal and state courts across the nation at the trial and appellate levels, before arbitration tribunals and administrative law judges and in specialty courts.
Spanning DebevoiseÕs New York, London, Paris, Moscow and Hong Kong offices, the practiceÕs lawyers are fluent in more than 30 languages and trained and qualified under a host of common law and civil law systems. The Group has participated in more than 20 hearings thus far in 2014. Lawyers in the practice handle a broad range of matters, including international commercial and treaty arbitration, public international law and complex commercial litigation.
Our integrated global arbitration practice provides organisations with arbitration experts wherever in the world they operate. By drawing upon the resources of our global arbitration practice, we are able to deploy teams that are adapted to the specific requirements of the dispute, in terms both of geographic and industry-specific expertise. Partners in our arbitration practice are members of leading arbitral institutions and regularly sit as arbitrators. The Group’s partners serve on the ICC Court and Commission. The Group’s partners are also active in the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), the International Bar Association (IBA) and the International Law Association (ILA).
We have represented our clients before the main Hungarian and European courts, including the Constitutional Court of Hungary, the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. We have also represented our clients before international arbitration courts, such as the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
