Marcum LLP Named Exclusive U.S. Member Firm of ECOVIS International
New York City, NY - Marcum LLP has been named the exclusive U.S. member firm of ECOVIS International, a global accounting and advisory network with members in 60 countries on six continents. Effective January 1, 2017, Marcum will represent the organization's sole presence in the United States.
Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, with administrative offices in Berlin, Germany, ECOVIS International includes firms representing 4500 partners and employees in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa, Australia, and North and South America. The rapidly expanding network provides tax, audit, accounting and legal services to international businesses dealing with cross border issues, family-owned enterprises, local branches of major corporations, government organizations and other entities.
"Marcum is honored to be the exclusive associated member firm of ECOVIS International in the United States. The name ECOVIS is derived from 'economic vision.' The members envision an expanding global footprint that will allow us to more effectively serve our growing international client base," said Marcum Partner James Smart, who is the Firm's director of mergers and acquisitions.
This is the second recent development that expands Marcum's global operations. On October 5, Marcum announced the opening of its first European office, a joint venture operating as Marcum RBK (Ireland) Limited. Based in Dublin, that office is a new service center for the Firm's hedge fund and private equity fund clients in Europe.
Additionally, Marcum will continue its long association with the Leading Edge Alliance, of which it is a founding member.
"Our membership in ECOVIS further expands Marcum's service capability for our clients conducting business internationally, while providing our U.S. resources to our new firm affiliates around the world," said Jeffrey M. Weiner, Marcum's managing partner.
