San Francisco-based IPA 100 firm Andersen (FY19 net revenue of $321.7 million) has established a new forensics practice by bringing in managing directors Patrice Ferguson, John Camp and Cynthia Nguyen from forensics, business valuation and consulting firm Ferguson Camp Poll PC of Houston.
Founded in 1977, Ferguson Camp Poll provides forensics, tax compliance and planning services. Andersen plans to start its forensics practice locally in Houston before expanding nationally.
“The inaugural launch of a forensics practice in the Houston office is a major advantage for Andersen and for our clients,” says U.S. country managing director Dan DePaoli. “This practice is synergistic with our private client services and valuation practices and will enable us to address some of the unique needs of our client base.”
