Marcum's LGBT & Non-Traditional Family Practice Group Featured in Public Accounting Report Article "Marcum Launches LGBT, Non-Traditional Practice"
Marcum's LGBT & Non-Traditional Family Practice Group was featured in the Public Accounting Report article “Marcum Launches LGBT, Non-Traditional Practice.”
The following is an excerpt from the article:
Nature abhors a vacuum, per an ancient Latin proverb (natura abhorret vacuum). Nature recognizes a vacuum as a vacancy to be filled and, often, as an opportunity to thrive.
The same is true for business, of course. Marcum LLP, based in New York, recognized an opportunity recently when it created its national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) and Non-Traditional Family practice group.
Based in the firm’s San Francisco office, the new specialty officially launched in June under the direction of Nanette Lee Miller, national practice leader and Marcum’s West Coast partner-in-charge of assurance services.
The national practice provides tax planning and tax compliance services, family office services, and assurance and business consulting services. It draws upon the resources of approximately 40 Marcum staff members, Miller said, none of whom has a full-time commitment to the practice. Miller, for example, said she devotes about 15% of her time to the practice. “Every city has a contact [person],” she told PAR, mentioning such major urban markets as New York, Boston and South Florida in particular.
