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
