Most of his time is spent overseeing the audits of domestic companies and their foreign subsidiaries primarily in the manufacturing, distribution, consumer & industrial services, transportation, and franchising industries, owned variously by private equity groups, venture capital firms, and families. He centers his practice around a deep understanding of his clients’ businesses and works closely with them through significant transactions on a real-time basis.
