New York-based Friedman LLP (FY17 net revenue of $101.5 million), with offices in New Jersey, Long Island, N.Y., Philadelphia and Beijing, announced Kim Dula will assume the position of MP for the firm’s Philadelphia office on Jan. 1.
Dula will work closely with current MP Chuck Shechtman to transition management responsibilities. He will continue serving clients and developing new business opportunities within the Mid-Atlantic region.
“The entire Philadelphia office is so passionate about their work and is a great team to be a part of. They demonstrate exceptional client service each day, and we can thank Chuck for setting that example in his role,” says Dula.
Dula is a partner who provides tax planning and compliance services to the firm’s high-net-worth clients and their closely held businesses and private foundations. She also provides clients with the consulting and compliance services required to fulfill their estate, gift and fiduciary needs.
“Kim brings an impressive background in accounting and a strong dedication to her clients to the position, which is critical to maintaining our reputation for excellence and service,” says Shechtman. Dula will continue to manage the Philadelphia tax department and remain active in the firm’s high net-worth and closely held business practices.
Much of the staff in the Philadelphia office joined Friedman following its acquisition of Philadelphia-based accounting firm Shechtman Marks Devor in January 2016. Dula has been a partner at Friedman since 2013.
