Anthony P. Frabotta

Chicago-based UHY Advisors (FY17 net revenue of $140.8 million) announced that it has expanded its office in the mid-Atlantic region through its merger of the professional services firm Berman Goldman & Ribakow LLP (bgr CPAs), which is located in Columbia, Md. The merger was effective Dec. 3.

“The addition is part of UHY’s growth strategy to add quality firms and partners in the region, expand our footprint, provide added services and gain critical mass,” says Anthony P. Frabrotta, chairman and CEO, UHY Advisors. “The bgr CPAs team brings unique local service capabilities that will enhance and help us grow our platform for existing UHY services.”

This merger doubles the size of UHY in the Maryland area and is in response to continued client demand for increased services and capabilities, UHY says. Marc Rubin, MP of bgr, and Steve Wolf, partner, and their 20+ colleagues will be joining the existing UHY office in Columbia.

“UHY’s commitment to personalized, high-quality audit, tax and specialized consulting services strongly mirror that of bgr,” Rubin says. “We are eager to be able to offer our clients a broader array of resources, service offerings and solutions.”
