Mazars bears the name of its original founder, Robert Mazars, who started its practice near Rouen, in Western France, in 1940. The firm quickly grew to establish itself as a highly reputable practice, rapidly acquiring new clients and becoming well-known for its focus on technical excellence and quality of service.
Since its foundation, Mazars has chosen the demanding option of being a truly integrated firm. The Mazars Organisation is based on democratic partnership. It gives each partner the right to vote on the strategic decisions involving the future of the partnership.
