Baker Tilly Virchow Krausse, Baker Tilly’s US member firm, is set to merge with RGL Forensics, a financial investigations firm, with an effective date of completion expected by the end of the year.
Baker Tilly was the 9th biggest network in the USA, according to the International Accounting Bulletin’s USA country survey 2018.
RGL Forensics provides forensic accounting and fraud investigation services and specialises in the quantification of economic damages and financial analysis in claims as well as disputes.
Baker Tilly managing partner of consulting Ethan Bach said: “We are excited to join forces with RGL to create a premier global forensic accounting practice. For many years, RGL has been a valued business advisor to large insurance, legal and corporate clients and has a strong global reputation for specialising in forensic accounting services.
“In merging with RGL, we are adding a well-established, global player that will enhance the ability of both teams to serve clients worldwide.”
RGL CEO Angela MacPhee said: “Combining our team with Baker Tilly gives us a wider platform and more delivery channels to better serve our clients. Baker Tilly’s entrepreneurial culture and well-earned reputation as a great place to work provides our team with even more opportunities.”
RGL will continue to operate under its current brand as the firms work through their integrations strategy.
