Andersen Consulting acquired Citron Haligman Bedecarre, San Francisco, and plans to expand it into a network through acquisitions of agencies in New York and Europe, said an executive close to the transaction. Andersen purchased Citron through a partnership with Sequoia Capital, a venture capital firm. Tom Bedecarre, chairman of Citron, denied his shop had been purchased. He said it was "working on a project'' with an offshoot company of Andersen.
