Ryan to Acquire WTP Advisors

Dallas-based Ryan announced that the firm has signed an agreement to acquire White Plains, N.Y.-based WTP Advisors (WTP). Michael Minihan and Ian Boccaccio, co-founders of WTP, will join the Ryan executive leadership team as principals to support the integration and drive continued growth and international expansion. Boccaccio will also serve as principal and practice leader of Ryan’s international tax practice.

The acquisition will add a team of professionals to provide knowledge and client support across multiple practice areas, including international tax, credits and incentives, SALT and federal tax. WTP’s core capabilities in international tax compliance and tax provision services will drive growth in Ryan’s rapidly expanding international tax practice. It also adds a large complement of respected companies to Ryan’s portfolio of clients across the world.

“WTP clients will benefit tremendously from the unparalleled tax knowledge, expertise and commitment to client service that our newly combined team of tax professionals will provide,” says Minihan.

Certain assets associated with WTP, including the WTP Exchange and Worldwide Trade Partners, LLC entities, will remain independent and are not included in the acquisition. The parties expect that the transaction will close by the end of November.
