Our clients extend from local businesses to multinational companies, requiring a high level of local service and knowledge, enhanced by expertise from across the globe. These trends have powered the firm’s growth across borders. In 2007, Golder served clients through 6,000 staff, in 150 offices, in 29 countries on six continents, along with countless project sites.
