TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - Toronto-based accountancy firm Segal LLP has been named a member of the worldwide accounting network managed by Moore Stephens International. "This is very significant for our current and prospective clients who will benefit from access to over 600 professional accounting offices around the world," notes Segal LLP Partner Michael Daren.
Segal LLP underwent a rigorous six month examination of its work, image and reputation before being named as a member.
"We were searching for certain knowledge gaps in some services and industries, and looking for geographic holes in our network," says Moore Stephens North America Executive Director Steven Sacks. "We needed a presence in Toronto thanks to a good deal of inbound economic business, especially from Asia," Sacks adds.
Thanks in part to the size of Moore Stephens International's network, the probability of establishing a presence for foreign businesses in Ontario is now threefold.
"The obvious benefit is to global companies who want to have an operation in Ontario," says Daren. Segal LLP's recent successes include helping a U.S. public corporation with sales of $750 million to establish a base in Ontario. "Our highly competent, client-focused staff help businesses operate in and market to the Canadian sector," Daren states. "Global companies see Canada as an attractive place to invest."
It took a deliberate, thoughtful approach from both sides to cement the relationship. "We needed to ensure our newest partner has the depth and breadth of expertise needed in today's global economy. Segal proved itself to be the perfect partner through its integrity and experience with international work," Sacks declares.
"This is hugely helpful to our clients who want to do business or acquire assets in over 120 countries around the world," observes Daren. "It enhances our ability to add to our clients' success."
