Baker Tilly Virchow Krause and financial investigations firm RGL Forensics have merged to create a global forensic accounting practise.

As part of the integration, RGL Forensics has rebranded as BTVK Advisory in the UK, whilst all other RGL offices are being rebranded as Baker Tilly.

BTVK Advisory will continue to work alongside its global team of 22 partners and around 140 accountants, consultants and forensic technologists to lead investigations in the insurance, legal and corporate markets for global corporations and also perform investigations of data and events.

BTVK’s head of global forensic practise and former CEO of RGL Angela MacPhee said: “We are proud to be the first firm with a global presence focused solely on forensic accounting to join with Baker Tilly. This is an affirmation of the growing importance of financial investigation practitioners. Being part of Baker Tilly Virchow Krause gives us critical mass and access to an even larger international network.

“We now have greater resources to invest in ensuring future-focused agility and longevity. We look forward to continuing to provide our clients with the high-level service that they have received over the past 20 years under the RGL brand and offering even greater value in the future.”
