The Leading Edge Alliance

The Leading Edge Alliance

Created in 1999, the Leading Edge Alliance (LEA), brings together the major independent accounting and consultancy firms, which share an entrepreneurial spirit and aim to be leaders in their market segment. The second largest alliance of independent firms, Primexis is the number one French firm to join the association in order to offer its clients the ability to operate internationally.

Present on all continents and in 110 countries through its 220 members, the LEA comprises 23,000 professionals and represents a consolidated turnover of more than $US3 billion.

A particularly dynamic alliance, the LEA allows Primexis customers to benefit from accounting and consulting services across the globe. On behalf of its members, it organizes numerous working groups and development opportunities as well as access to pooled skills and technical resources.

Olivier Touchard, Chairman of Primexis, is a member of the Alliance’s steering committee for Europe, which allows the firm to contribute extensively to developing the international network.
