By Tamika Cody
Top 20 Firm Marcum LLP has a lot to be proud of these days. The New York-based firm's far-reac hing capabilities in tax, business, assurance and advisory services are being incorporated into its fastest growing division -- its Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender and Nontraditional Family Practice Group.
While some firms might shy away from serving the LGBT community because it's perceived as controversial, the team leaders realized that there was a genuine market need. Over the last several months, the group has designated practice representatives in the 20 markets that it has a presence in. Out of the firm's 1,100 professionals, between 40 and 100 assist LGBT clients.
Nanette Lee Miller, Marcum's partner-in-charge of assurance services, heads up the LGBT practice on the West Coast, while Janis Cowhey McDonagh leads the practice on the East Coast.
