MSI Global Alliance (MSI)

Alan E H Bates & Co. is a member of MSI Global Alliance (MSI),  an international association of leading independent accounting and law firm, with over 250 member firms in 105 countries across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa.

Founded in 1990, MSI has become the ‘go to’ international association for senior executives working at many nationally and internationally focused, small to medium sized companies that need legal and financial guidance to be coordinated in multiple jurisdictions. MSI connects mid sized, local, independently owned professional firms serving clients who need legal and accounting services in cities and countries where the local firm does not maintain a physical office.

MSI membership enables independent firms to win, service and retain larger, nationally and internationally focused clients that are typically out of the reach of the average local firm.

MSI Global Alliance member firms offer a genuine alternative to the small to medium sized company that needs professional advisors who can blend local expertise with international experience, and provide services at a competitive price and with levels of service that can’t be matched by the larger firms.
