This directory gives you quick access to finding an adviser in the CBA network of Associates. Search by country or expertise to find an expert to guide you through your particular cross-border transaction.
"Our 250+ Associates worked a combined 4220 years in consulting, and closed so far 8936 transactions for a total of EUR 159.8 Billion" (December 31, 2019).
CB Associates must fulfil our network’s mandatory criteria to join. What this means for you is that you can be assured that the associate you contact is an expert in his field and has plentiful experience in cross-border transactions. Our Associates have:
Legal and tax advice are normally provided by third parties. However, CBA has initiated The Expert Alliance of lawyers, chartered accountants and tax advisers to form part of the global CBA network. This alliance of professionals assists the CB Associates as independent legal practitioners.
CBA has also partnered with experts from other professions: financial engineers, bankers, chartered accountants, technical engineers, architects, surveyors, scientists and other professionals from various industries. Their addition to the CBA network has added regional and industry skill and knowledge. They provide both you and our Associates with information on cultural differences and differences in regional business practices. You can leverage our network and gain access to their professional talent when you cooperate with CBA.
Partners of The Expert Alliance act as special advisers in their areas of expertise. You are welcome to contact them for general advice and for support on one or both sides of a cross-border transaction. They also can help with special due diligence functions.
CBA maintains a comprehensive database of such professionals in more than 100 countries.
Special deals in multiple industries need people with specific skills and experience to successfully accompany cross-border transactions over and above the ordinary.
That is why CBA partnered with consultants from a great variety of backgrounds, to help CBA and its Associates with their extremely professional knowledge during the closing and due diligence processes in a cross-border transaction.
Again, this has one clear aim: The independence form external consultants that are not part of the CBA family. Consultants associated with CBA are practising under CBA’s rules and regulations of confidentiality and business ethics within a sworn team of professionals, for the benefit of their clients.
Prof. Nelson Pilosof, Montevideo | Uruguay
Nelso Pilosof was one of the first CBA associates. At the time of joining CBA, he was the president of the World Trade Center in Montevideo, Uruguay, was Professor of Philosophy and the Latin American representative at the University of Jerusalem and the Weizmann Institute. Nelson was a successful businessman, cosmopolitan and lecturer at many universities. One of his hobbies was writing lyrics for tango music. We only met in 2008 when we established a pleasant relationship and developed a late friendship.
It hurt to lose Nelson, as well as his friendship and knowledge.
