MaloneBailey LLP Head’s East With N.Y. Acquisition

Houston-based MaloneBailey LLP (FY09 net revenue of $12.4 million) acquired the New York firm of Kempisty & Co. (nine staff)

MP of K&Co., Philip Kempisty will join MB as a partner and will be focused on developing the firm’s Chinese market.

“This expansion is part of our plan to strengthen our position as a market leader in the SEC practice area,” says MB MP Wesley Middleton. “We believe this office establishes a significant presence for M&B in the New York area, allowing us to better serve our clients and providing a platform to expand our reach deeper into the SEC audit, tax and privately held company audit areas,” he says. This is the first move east for MB.
