UHY LLP Grows International Tax Practice with Merger

Chicago-based UHY Advisors Inc. (FY15 net revenue of $114.2 million) has acquired Byrne International LLC of New York.

Christopher J. Byrne joins UHY as a managing director, and he has brought a team of four staff members with him: Bella Litchev, Rhona Merkur, Leo Gabovich and Matthew Maroney. This merger, based out of UHY Advisors’ New York office, will enhance the company’s ability to offer dynamic solutions and domain expertise for UHY’s international clientele.

Byrne has practiced in the field of international taxation and cross-border estate planning for more than 20 years. His team offers in-depth experience and collectively strengthens UHY Advisors’ capabilities in the critical area of international tax consulting.

“Given the increased attention to offshore accounts, and volatility in the world of global commerce, we believe the timing of this acquisition could not have been better,” says Michael Mahoney, CEO at UHY Advisors NY.
