GSL is a fast-growing company rendering tax, law, audit and consulting services in Europe, USA, Asia and Russia.
We are a team of about 200 very young, simply young and forever young people working in 8 offices: 4 offices in Europe (UK, Cyprus, Hungary, Romania), an office in the British Virgin Islands, an office in SAR Hong Kong, an office in the Seychelles, an office in the UAE, and the head office in Moscow, Russia. In addition to Russian and English, we are fluent in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Greek, Japanese, Chinese, Yoruba and Arabic (let alone a dozen computer languages).
What does “GSL” stand for?
When we were focused on legal practice alone, the initial company name Global Solutions in Law (or GSL in short) fully corresponded to the nature of our business. But as the company was covering new practice areas, some clarifying words started to appear next to “GSL” to denote the particular line of business. This way we had GSL Law & Consulting, GSL Audit, GSL Translations, GSL Conferences and Seminars and others.
This is the official version. Those who do not agree with it actively exercise their wit by offering alternative versions of what “GSL” stands for.
