Baker Tilly International member firm ParenteBeard LLC
(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) has announced the
creation of a China desk within the firm.
"The China desk was created in response to the increased demand
for high quality international consulting services for both inbound
and outbound initiatives related to China," states ParenteBeard
chairman and CEO Bob Ciaruffoli. "Our firm recognises the
importance of providing exceptional client service that meets the
specialised needs of our international client base."
Headquartered in New York City, the China desk will provide an
extensive line of services tailored specifically to clients either
seeking to invest in China or China-based companies interested in
expansion within the US market. Led by Joe O'Neill, regional
managing partner and tax practice leader, the China desk team will
include international tax and audit professionals, including
several members who are proficient in the Chinese, Cantonese and
Mandarin languages. Additional expertise will be provided by
Partner Lawrence Gotfried leading the desk's audit practice and
partner Michael Mathisen as lead of the desk's tax practice. Both
bring years of international experience and knowledge to help
spearhead this new international initiative.
"We are excited for the opportunities that our China desk will
provide to current and future clients. This is a true example of
our commitment to delivering value added services that are
customised for our broad range of clients." said Joe O'Neill.
