About North and South Europe & Middle East

As our clients operate in a more globally connected way than ever before, we have been taking steps to create fewer, more integrated member firms across our global network.

In June 2017 Deloitte member firms in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom combined to become Deloitte North West Europe (Deloitte NWE). A year later, Ireland joined too.

Having access to talented people with a rich mix of skills and perspectives across different countries meant we could better serve our clients, provide more opportunity for our people, and make a bigger impact in the communities in which we operate.

In June 2019, Deloitte Central Mediterranean (DCM) – comprising Italy, Greece and Malta – joined Deloitte NWE to create Deloitte North and South Europe (Deloitte NSE).

On 1 June 2020, Deloitte Middle East (DME) will officially become part of Deloitte NSE – bringing together over 9,900 tax and legal professionals across 26 different countries (and 45,000 across all businesses).
