Testimonials

What our clients say about us...

“As a small US based company with stretched resources - and expanding into the UK for the first time - we really needed a 'one-stop shop’ which could provide us with a broad range of services and the expertise and advice to make our expansion successful. We found exactly that with F&L. They have been great to work with. We feel good knowing that we are working with a trusted partner in the UK.”

CFO, ObjectLabs Corporation (San Francisco, CA, USA)

“We leveraged F&L’s experience of working with international companies and their wide range of services to get us moving as quickly as possible across Europe.”

Uk Director & Corporate Controller, Basho Technologies (Bellevue, WA, USA)

“We have achieved more in 10 years with F&L's help than we ever could have anticipated. We have grown exponentially and F&L have kept pace with our needs and provided support and advice whenever we have called upon them.”

Corporate Controller, Infinera Corporation (Sunnyvale, CA, USA)

“When our Australian based company expanded internationally in the UK, the advice and support we got from F&L has been invaluable. In addition to F&L looking after the yearly tax returns, we outsourced all payroll, VAT, BIK and the accounting function to them and the team was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. No question was ever left unanswered. F&L are an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Finance Director, Clinical Network Services (Brisbane, Australia)

“As Expensify has expanded internationally in the UK and now Australia, Fitzgerald and Law has been a valuable partner ensuring that Expensify effectively incorporated, all regulatory and statutory matters related for employment, corporate and commerce tax were met and timely accounting, reporting and statutory audit services were in place.

Throughout the process, F&L has proven to be an excellent partner to Expensify. F&L made sure we were set-up in the right way enabling us to recruit the best people. They made the setup process easy and quick, and made sure we had all the registrations we needed in order to hit the ground running. They continue to look after all the HR, management accounting, payroll, tax and benefits stuff so that we can focus on what we do what we do best. Together F&L and Expensify is a fantastic partnership and a winning formula to setting up an office internationally.”

Chief Financial Officer, #Tagboard (Seattle, Washington, USA)

“We met with the F&L team when our company first intended to set up overseas business in UK.

They quickly utilised their expertise to set out a timeline of initial tasks. They also addressed all of our Corporation Tax, VAT and Construction Industry specific needs.

As a Chinese company that was new to the European market, F&L made us feel welcome - and further supported us by providing us with Chinese-speaking employees at F&L, which ensured communication went smoothly.

F&L also helped our employees from China obtain working visas efficiently.

We really appreciate what they have done for us and would definitely recommend them to any Chinese company wanting to set up overseas.”

Overseas Business Development Deputy Manager, China State Construction (Beijing, China)

“Clique Intelligence is the seventh start-up I have built and I have used F&L as a way of accessing European markets on different projects. With Clique Intelligence, we expanded into the UK from California, USA in 2014. F&L handled all the initial set-up requirements for us including Company Secretarial, Corporation Tax, VAT and payroll registrations as well as bank account set-up. Tim and the benefits team also took care of our HR and employee benefits needs. The whole team has been a reliable and valuable partner - enabling us to focus on operational growth rather than be buried under paperwork better managed by professionals.”

President & CEO, Clique Intelligence (Redwood City, California, USA)

“We began working with F&L when we established our first overseas office in the UK back in 2012. A little over three years later, we had over 40 employees in the UK and operations in five other European territories. F&L has been by our side throughout - providing guidance and support at every stage of our international expansion.

F&L have provided payroll compliance and a fully outsourced finance function, and act as our trusted advisors in respect of matters such as international tax, HR, employee benefits, and VAT. We rely on their extraordinarily high levels of professionalism and expertise, and look forward to a long working relationship with their offices in the US, the UK and beyond.”

Chief Financial Officer, ServiceMax (Pleasanton, California, USA)

“The whole F&L team have become so much more than ‘just’ advisors. They feel like a reliable friend and partner - providing straightforward, valuable advice regarding everything from banking and management accounting to VAT and HR issues. We really feel we wouldn’t get this breadth or level of service anywhere else. We are very happy and would recommend them to anyone."

FOUNDER, BRETEUIL (Paris, France)

“It is comforting knowing that our business needs are in the hands of F&L. They have been by our side from our first UK hire through to when we were acquired by Disney. The team have allowed us to focus on what is important to us (which isn't HR, tax or accounting compliance!).”

Corporate Controller, Maker Studios / Disney (Marina del Rey, California, USA)

“As an existing client of EKS&H in Colorado and being accustomed to the high levels of service that they provide, we have been delighted to work with a similarly professional and knowledgeable UK firm in Fitzgerald & Law over the last year. The two firms worked together to ensure that our UK-operations were both efficiently managed and fully compliant with UK accounting and tax regulations, and the relationship between the firms makes our US and worldwide financial reporting very straightforward. We look forward to a successful ongoing relationship with both EKS&H and F&L.”

CFO, Tech Stars (Denver, Colorado, USA)

“It’s been more than a pleasure working with you over the years. We have had truly talented individuals at F&L handling our corporate affairs - which has provided real peace of mind. It has been an honor.”

Principal, MANGROOMER® (Santa Monica, California, USA)

"I really appreciate everyone at Fitzgerald & Law and their friendliness and willingness to help us in these matters. It's great to be able to start a business in a new country with the knowledge that there are people like Sean O'Sullivan and his colleagues who are watching out for us in matters that are new to us and that we don't understand. I have really appreciated all of the help your firm has given to us these past couple of years."

Controller, Backstage Library Works (Provo, Utah, USA)

Accountant, Baker Engineering and Risk Consultants, Inc. (San Antonio, Texas, USA)

"My experience with F&L has always been positive. Sungae has always been very responsive, diligent and accurate in work carried out on behalf of FCI and now Delphi (post-integration). My experience is that F&L has always had the client interest to the fore - ensure all legal and contractual obligations are observed and fulfilled. Pleasure to work with."

Global Change Management Lead, Delphi HRIS (Project ABLE) Implementation (Paris, France)

"F&L has been an absolute pleasure to work with. The team is friendly and vastly knowledgeable which makes us all feel very comfortable. They are able to explain what is needed in a very clear and professional manner. They take the time to explain the hows and the whys which I love. They have made it very easy to transition from running a company in the US to also running a company in the UK. I’m not sure how we would have made it through the first year without their help."

Accounting Manager, Exhibition Evolution (Devon, UK)

"Thanks to the professional services provided by F&L, the launch of our UK entity went very smoothly. The staff explained the requirements clearly, and adjusted their level of service to match our needs. The flow of information between the tax, payroll and legal departments was excellent, resulting in a smooth process. Having gone through the process in several other countries, our experience with F&L was by far the most superior."

“Having a partner such as Fitzgerald & Law enables us to focus on our core business. We rely on Fitzgerald & Law for their advice and ability to implement in a professional manner.”

Finance Director, BTIG (UK) (San Francisco, California, USA)

“Fitzgerald & Law took the time to meet with us on several occasions in order to develop an understanding of our current benefits program in the United States before making any recommendations that were specific to the UK and even more specific to our particular industry within the UK. They showed a solid understanding of US benefits in general, which made the process of "translation" from one country to the next extremely simple. We've found the F&L staff - from employees to partners - to be extremely knowledgeable, professional and service-driven, which makes us feel incredibly comfortable. Having F&L as our "in-house" provider of, amongst other things, our benefits program allows us to focus on running our business and doing the things we need to do to be successful.”

CEO, Tempus Consulting (Washington DC, USA)

“Fitzgerald & Law are absolutely outstanding - really good thinkers and brilliant to work with. They're relaxed and approachable and have become good friends to the club.”

Director of Finance & Accounting, Promontory Financial Group (Washington, DC, USA)

“The support that we have received from F&L Information Technology has been an enormous help whilst implementing our network in the UK, from day to day user support to managing core business systems, their friendly approach and dedication to the task has meant that we can concentrate on other areas of the business.”

IT Manager (UK), Eurasian Natural Resource Corporation Plc (Astana, Kazakhstan)

“As the lead manager on our recent bid for a contract in the United Kingdom, it was my responsibility to assure that our proposed pricing structure would lead to a reasonable payback period. As such, we partnered with F&L to gain a clearer understanding of the UK market's labor regulations and taxation policies. The team at F&L did a great job on our project. I was really impressed with their speedy responses and with the clear and straightforward business advice given. Having the F&L office in San Francisco meant there was always someone available on our time zone to take the call and deal with the issue. I would definitely recommend any company thinking of doing business in the UK or Europe to contact F&L.”

Director, Club Demonstration Services (San Diego, California, USA)
