Friedman LLP and Executive Sounding Board Associates Join Forces

New York-based Friedman LLP (FY13 net revenue of $72.6 million) and Executive Sounding Board Associates LLC (ESBA) announced that Friedman will integrate the business consulting, turnaround management, restructuring and crisis management practice of ESBA into Friedman effective Jan. 1, 2015. Friedman and ESBA will continue to operate as independent brands.

The integration expands Friedman’s footprint in Pennsylvania and Maryland and provides clients of both firms with full-service accounting, tax, advisory and restructuring services. Conversely, ESBA plans to increase its presence in New York and leverage its expertise and contact base with the support of Friedman personnel.

“The Friedman/ESBA integration arose out of a mutual trust and desire to provide our clients with an increasing depth of high-quality professional services,” says Bruce Madnick, MP of Friedman.

“Our offerings complement each other nicely,” says Robert Katz, president of ESBA, “especially Friedman’s forensic accounting, litigation support and valuation services with ESBA’s restructuring and crisis management expertise.”
