DFK adds member firm in Russia

DFK International has added consulting company Althaus Group to its association in Russia.

Moscow-based Althaus Group offers services in finance, tax, valuation and legal to both domestic and international clients.

The firm was established in 2009 and counts around 100 employees, including five partners.

The association's expansion in Russia comes despite growing concerns for the future of global professional services businesses in the country.

Looking to limit the influence of foreign firms in the country's state enterprises, legislation proposed in 2014 would limit the tenders available to non-Russian firms if approved this year.

Despite such concerns, DFK International executive director Martin Sharp's interest in the market appeared undiminished.
Commenting on the addition of Althaus Group, he said: "We believe DFK International is now poised to form a national group in
Russia and further expand our presence to towns and cities throughout the country."
