ONTARIO, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Founding principals Farley Cohen, Ross
Hamilton and Peter Steger are pleased to announce that Cohen Hamilton
Steger & Co. is expanding into the Ottawa market with an office led by
new principal Greg McEvoy, CPA, CA•IFA, CBV, CFE.
Mr. McEvoy has over 20 years experience in forensic accounting, damages
quantification and business valuation. As a former Executive Director
and Associate Partner at major international accounting firms, he has
extensive litigation support experience in calculating damages and
business values in matters such as breach of contract, patent
infringement and matrimonial disputes. His investigative experience
includes numerous fraud and contracting investigations, program
spending and funding reviews, NAFTA challenges and public inquiries.
"We are delighted to have someone of Greg's reputation and considerable
skills as part of our team," says Farley Cohen, a CHS founding
principal. "In many areas of the work we do at CHS, our clients are
located throughout Canada and around the world. Our IP support
practice, in particular, works regularly on matters based in Toronto,
Ottawa and Montreal, so expanding into Ottawa with Greg was a natural
move to better serve our law firm, corporate and government clients."
Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co., which was founded in 2010 by three former
practice leaders from major international consultancies, has grown to
15 professionals in its Toronto and Ottawa offices. The firm's
hallmarks are expertise, independence and objectivity. CHS does not
compromise its independence by doing financial statement audits, tax or
operations-consulting work for clients.
"CHS is very well respected and I'm excited to be joining them in
building a strong on-the-ground presence in Ottawa," says Mr. McEvoy.
"The firm's independent boutique structure greatly reduces the
potential for conflicts that can hinder client service at the large
international firms - and I really look forward to being able to serve
clients that I couldn't always help in the past."
The new Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co. office is located at:
340 Albert Street, Suite 1300
Ottawa, ON K1R 7Y6
