New York-based IPA 100 firm Marcum LLP (FY20 net revenue of $689.1 million) is merging in Saddle Brook, N.J.-based IPA 300 firm RotenbergMeril (FY20 net revenue of $13.3 million).
“RotenbergMeril is a top New Jersey firm with a strong national presence and an outstanding technical capability,” says Marcum vice chairman David Bukzin. “Their capabilities in SEC services, in particular, will be an important additional asset to our capital markets group, in support of our continued growth as one of the top-ranked practices in the country.”
Founded in 1986, RotenbergMeril provides tax and audit services to private equity firms and their portfolio companies, hedge funds, financial services organizations and emerging public companies, as well as diverse commercial clients including professional service firms and renewable energy, manufacturing, commercial real estate and fintech/software development companies. As part of the deal, eight partners and 53 associates of RotenbergMeril will join Marcum, and MP Neal Rotenberg will become OMP of Marcum’s Saddle Brook office.
“Marcum’s extensive national resources and deep bench of talent are very attractive to our team, particularly where our practice specialties align, including for our publicly traded clients,” says Rotenberg. “The opportunity to collaborate as partners and to expand Marcum’s presence in New Jersey is a perfect fit with our growth strategy.”
