The merger between MBP and Friedman’s China practice combined with our expansion to Southeast Asia will substantially increase the resources that we can provide clients in Asia by nearly doubling both the staff and the number of clients we serve in the region,” MBP’s Co-Chairman Drew Bernstein told me by email.
“Rather than licensing the Marcum brand to independent entities, our strategy is to provide a fully integrated, 24/7 service model in which teams on both sides of the ocean collaborate to reduce cycle times and access expertise across the organization,” he said.
“While there continues to be a lot of focus on the conflicts in the U.S.-China relationship, we continue to believe that the American capital markets offer unmatched advantages to growth companies in Asia who are willing to commit to rigorous financial reporting and governance standards. The merger plants a flag signaling our long-term commitment to this market,” Bernstein said.
