Global professional services group Russell Bedford has added Spielman Koenigsberg & Parker LLP (SKP) of New York as a member of its U.S. network. This move comes soon after the addition of new firms in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Founded in 1955, SKP is a six-partner CPA firm with more than 50 professional and support staff. The firm’s clients range from high-net-worth individuals and entrepreneurs, start-ups and family businesses to professional practices, investment funds and major international corporations. The firm is known for its services to organizations and individuals in the creative and performing arts and entertainment sector.
In addition to its audit, accounting and tax consultancy services, SKP has gained a market-leading reputation for its forensic accounting practice, as well as its specialist practice in the outsourcing of licensing and royalty accounting and management.
Bill Rucci, chairman of Russell Bedford International, says, “The addition of Spielman Koenigsberg & Parker marks a major step forward in the strategic development of our U.S. network, giving us a new and substantial presence in the nation’s international business capital. SKP’s specializations in the performing arts, entertainment and sports industries, in particular, have resulted in it achieving a reputation and profile far beyond New York. We are delighted to welcome such a well-respected firm into our organization.”
“SKP has seen considerable expansion as our clients grow their businesses throughout the United States and worldwide,” says Richard Koenigsberg, SKP’s MP. “Russell Bedford’s established network – both within the United States and outside of it – is the ideal vehicle for us in meeting our clients’ increasing needs for multijurisdictional compliance services and strategic advice.”
