Rosen, Sapperstein & Friedlander has acquired the assets of Washington, D.C.-based Becker & Co., formerly known as the Maryland office of MargolisBecker LLC.

The acquisition provides RS&F with a specialization in the print and media industries as well as a range of clients in various other markets. RS&F has hired all of Becker’s employees. 

RS&F caters to middle-market businesses and high-net-worth families throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Its technical expertise and operational resources will benefit Becker’s clients through increased service offerings and dynamic client service. Additionally, RS&F’s affiliation with CPA Associates International, an association of independent CPA and Chartered Accounting firms, expands Becker’s national and international resources in the areas of tax, accounting, auditing, and consulting.

“I am excited to welcome Becker & Co. into the RS&F family,” RS&F president and managing director Howard Rosen said in a statement. “This merger supports our regional growth and expands our expertise to complement the diverse industries we currently serve.”

“RS&F complements our work with middle-market businesses while providing our clients with services such as audits, forensic accounting, expanded operational consulting and complex tax advisory,” Becker & Co.'s former managing partner Bart Krupnick said in a statement.

Krupnick has been named a partner of RS&F and now leads the print and media industries division of RS&F as well as oversees RS&F’s DC-area office.

Joe Becker, founder of Becker & Co., is also joining RS&F as a principal, working with print and media industry clients.
