New York-based Friedman LLP (FY18 net revenue of $117 million) is relocating its Marlton, N.J., office.
“Relocating our New York City headquarters to One Liberty Plaza earlier this year taught us so many valuable lessons. We see that a well-designed workplace guides effective workflow and employee engagement,” says co-MP Harriet Greenberg. “We took winning elements from our New York headquarters and included them in the new Marlton office – fresh designs, open floor plans and ergonomics-driven work stations.”
The 70 employees in Friedman’s current Marlton office will relocate to 601 Route 73 North in the weeks leading up to their current lease expiration. Carl Bagell, MP of southern New Jersey, will continue to oversee the office. “This is truly a special group of people with a lot of heart who are dedicated to uplifting one another and delivering excellent client service. I look forward to the opening of a space that is tailor-made for our employees and designed to give visitors a taste of what life is like in our award-winning firm.”
Additionally, the firm will open an office in Los Angeles, which will be led by Adnan Islam, partner and co-practice leaders of the firm’s International tax group. “I’m proud to say that our client work on the West Coast has been overwhelmingly positive. As such, creating a formal office location in Los Angeles has allowed us to enhance the hands-on attention we delivered to our clients.”
“The physical office in LA demonstrates Friedman’s growth mindset,” says co-MP Fred Berk. “We didn’t make it to nearly 100 years without taking calculated risks and rethinking what we’ve always done, because agility and innovation are key.”
