Marcum LLP's Merger with Braver PC Featured in Long Island Business News Article, "Marcum Merger Boosts New England Presence."
By David Winzelberg
Marcum has merged more than 100 staff and 14 partners from New England-based accounting firm Braver into its operations, expanding into Rhode Island and growing in Massachusetts.
Manhattan-based Marcum, which has a large Melville office, adds Braver's accounting, business strategies and valuation services operations to its firm. Braver's wealth management and technology consulting business were not part of the deal, which went into effect Jan. 1.
The transaction expands Marcum to beyond 1,300 professionals and gives the firm new offices in Providence, R.I., and Needham, Mass.
This is Marcum's first foray into Rhode Island, although it already had a presence in Boston and Raynham, Mass.
Marcum's six-office New England operations also include Hartford and New Haven, Conn.
Marcum Managing Partner Jeffrey M. Weiner said the deal will produce an "important new asset to our New England practice" and would "bring significant additional expertise regionally and nationally."
