By Claude Solnik
One of the nation’s largest accounting firms, Marcum LLP is merging Irvine, Calif.-based WilsonMorgan into its business, adding five partners and 30 staff to its Southern California practice.
The merger will give Marcum a third California office, in addition to those in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
WilsonMorgan offers tax, accounting and audit services along with advisory, management consulting and litigation services.
Marcum Managing Partner Jeffrey Weiner said WilsonMorgan’s “deep expertise and broad services capability” would fit with Marcum both regionally and nationally.
Weiner cited WilsonMorgan founding partners Philip Wilson and Jayson Morgan as well as the entire firm as welcome additions.
Wilson said the merger will let his firm “expand the services we are able to offer our clients,” while giving Marcum additional resources.
Wilson was named partner-in-charge of the firm’s Orange County office and the national practice leader of the tax controversy group. He has more than 25 years of CPA and business advisory expertise, including time spent as an Internal Revenue Service agent.
Jayson Morgan, who was named a partner in the firm’s Irvine office, has more than 20 years of experience, including time spent at a Big Four accounting firm.
Manhattan-based Marcum has a large presence in Melville, as well as offices in California, the Cayman Islands, Connecticut and China.
Among the largest firms in the New York metropolitan area, Marcum employs about 1,200 professionals, including more than 140 partners, in more than 20 states.
