Marcum to buy regional UHY offices

Details: Marcum LLP plans to expand in New England by acquiring three offices from UHY Advisors. The deal, which was set to close on April 16, according to a source close to Marcum, will add offices in Boston, and Hartford and New Haven, Conn. Marcum plans to retain all of the employees. Financial details were not available.

Marcum currently has offices in Greenwich, Conn., as well as in New York, New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania and Grand Cayman.

"There is a significant amount of M&A activity going on nationally," said management consultant Jay Nisberg. "However, when you see a well-thought-out strategic plan to create a regional or national footprint come together, one must truly applaud the efforts of the initiating firm. In my opinion, Marcum is doing exactly that. They have a very clear vision formulated by the firm's leadership, and they are making it happen." Nisberg believes Marcum will next turn its attention to expanding to the West Coast.
