Ogletree Deakins and KPMG Law Join Forces in a New Alliance

Share

Ogletree Deakins and KPMG Law in Germany1 are forming a global alliance to provide businesses with global workforce solutions. This alliance will be instrumental in expanding immigration and employment law reach for both organizations and will enable KPMG firms outside of the US2 to bring the US capability and services of Ogletree Deakins to their clients around the world.

The alliance is in response to growing client demand for a technology-powered, globally unified approach to business challenges faced in the areas of immigration and global mobility, labor and employment, and the associated tax, compensation, and benefits issues. This non-exclusive alliance with Ogletree Deakins does not include KPMG in the US or entities that it owns or controls, which do not provide legal services3.

“As businesses expand and look to shore up recovery in the post-pandemic world, there is increasing pressure for multinational organizations seeking to get the right people in the right places at the right time, and in compliance with the requirements of any given jurisdiction,” said Thomas Wolf, Head of Global Immigration Services for the KPMG organization. “Ogletree Deakins’ labor, employment and immigration experience in the United States is a perfect fit for KPMG’s organization of firms as we expand our global legal services practice4 and our global mobility services offerings around the world. We are excited to join forces with Ogletree Deakins to offer clients even deeper global coverage for their pressing employment and immigration legal matters.”

Both Ogletree Deakins and KPMG Law in Germany are leaders in utilizing technology and innovation to enhance client service, including in the areas of artificial intelligence, data analytics and knowledge management. By combining the strengths of both organizations, this new alliance will provide clients with an increased breadth of technology solutions. KPMG Law in Germany is part of the broader KPMG Law / Global Legal Services network across KPMG firms, with 2,800 lawyers in 81 jurisdictions.

“Ogletree Deakins is an international labor and employment firm and has established an extensive network of lawyers practicing in 53 offices across North America and in Europe to meet our clients’ needs. Our alliance with KPMG Law in Germany will benefit clients by complementing our US labor, employment and immigration offerings with ‘end-to-end’ workplace solutions—including tax, compensation, global immigration, and related advisory and consulting services, over a truly global footprint. Our firm shares a vision with the KPMG network for client service, innovation and cutting-edge technology solutions, and we are already working together on a next generation mobility services platform,” said Matt Keen, managing shareholder of Ogletree Deakins.

ISAE-SUPAERO's "Collaborative Rover and Drone" Project, Facilitating the Exploration of the Moon21.6.2021 09:54:00 CEST | Press release

While Thomas Pesquet launched on April 22 as part of the Alpha mission, one of humanity's biggest challenges remains even further away than the ISS, 400,000 km from Earth: the establishment of a lunar base. But before being able to settle on the Moon in a prolonged way to exploit its resources or as a logistic support for future exploration missions further away, an exploration work is necessary. The use of autonomous robotic systems would allow mapping of dangerous or hard-to-reach areas from space, before eventually deploying infrastructure such as a spaceport or human habitation. Faced with this exploration challenge, the Space Advanced Concepts Laboratory (SaCLaB) of ISAE-SUPAERO in Toulouse and a team of students from the Institute are developing the Collaborative Rover and Drone (CoRoDro) project to study navigation and autonomous operations for space robotic systems. This scientific study is one of 12 university technology projects selected in 8 different countries as part of th
