Baker Tilly expands national forensic, litigation and valuation services practice with strategic lift-out

Press release by Baker Tilly

Firm broadens its services to legal counsel with the addition of a leading bankruptcy, restructuring and disputes consulting team

CHICAGO. Accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) has expanded the firm's national forensic, litigation and valuation services (FLVS) platform with the addition of a seasoned team of professionals from the former consulting business unit of Chicago-based financial services firm Mesirow Financial (Mesirow).

The strategic addition of these practitioners increases the breadth and depth of services Baker Tilly offers its growing legal and corporate client base across the nation.

"This high performing team complements our broad range of FLVS offerings, greatly enhancing our ability to serve clients facing the largest, most complex disputes," Baker Tilly FLVS practice leader Tony Fuller said.

"The addition aligns well with our strategy to combine Baker Tilly's deep industry and technical expertise with a full range of FLVS offerings for our clients."

The team will continue to be led by Jack Williams. "We are excited to join the impressive group already in place at Baker Tilly. Our focus on the largest bankruptcy, restructuring and other business disputes aligns well with Baker Tilly's vision - and most importantly, is a great cultural fit for the team," Williams said.

"Our FLVS practice is of strategic importance for Baker Tilly," Baker Tilly Chief Executive Officer-Elect Alan Whitman said.

"The addition of these highly sought after professionals will raise the national profile of our FLVS team and result in synergies with other practices across the firm to help deliver the highly specialized services our clients expect."

The other partners joining from Mesirow are Susan Seabury, Michael Deeba, Kevin McColgan, Adam Ortega and Anne Rasho Vanderkamp.

Combined, Baker Tilly's FLVS practice has 13 partners, along with over 30 additional dedicated professionals located in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington, DC.

The national team offers a wide range of complex commercial dispute, valuation, forensic investigation and monitoring services across the country.
