“The Big Four’s assault on the legal services market looks set to continue with KPMG revealing an ambitious growth strategy which could see its lawyer headcount swell to over 3,000. The accountancy giant, granted alternative business structure (ABS) status in 2014, is aiming to “almost double” the size of its global legal services arm within the “next few years”.
The move would see KPMG, which already employs over 1,500 legal professionals across 67 jurisdictions, become one of the largest law firms in the world.”
