FRP ADVISORY has joined PrimeGlobal, one of the largest international associations of independent public accounting firms, as it seeks to further grow its international reach.
The firm says the move is a response to the increasing demand for FRP Advisory’s business advisory skills on assignments outside the UK.
Geoff Carton-Kelly, partner at FRP Advisory, said: “As one of the largest UK independent business advisory firms focusing on corporate restructuring, recovery, turnaround and debt advisory solutions, FRP Advisory is frequently approached by other independent accountancy firms both inside and outside the UK looking for quality, specialist advice.
“We have an existing strong national footprint across the UK and work on international assignments from North America to the Caribbean, Mainland Europe and Ireland to the Middle East and Asia; joining PrimeGlobal allows us to leverage FRP Advisory’s expertise across a 300 firm-strong association spanning 90 countries.”
FRP Advisory is one of the largest UK business advisory firms specialising in restructuring, recovery and insolvency, operating from 12 offices across England and Scotland with over 200 staff.
Thierry Delvaux , PrimeGlobal EMEA chief regional officer, said: “We are very happy to welcome FRP Advisory to PrimeGlobal. In today’s marketplace, restructuring and recovery services are critical offerings that shape the lifecycles and values of businesses around the globe.
“PrimeGlobal member firms worldwide are grateful and pleased to welcome a firm with the skills and expertise of FRP Advisory to the circle of advisors and colleagues on whom they can rely for advice in this critical area, and with whom they can share business opportunities.”
FRP Advisory recently acquired Litmus Advisory, adding three debt advisory partners in the process.
The deadline for entries into the profession’s awards expires tomorrow, 29 July.
