However, the network is stronger than any single firm; we have been considering this eventuality for some time and evaluating the options available to us in order to ensure continuous seamless service to our clients. An announcement will be made once the formalities relating to a new member firm are completed.
“We are proud of the strength of the Baker Tilly brand, which remains with us. In just over two decades we have built a business that ranks in the top ten worldwide – a network that is known for delivering high quality client services worldwide. The strength of our business is based on global reach, genuine depth in local markets and a high performance culture.
