October 12, 2022

ParenteBeard LLC is pleased to announce the formation of a China desk within the firm, effective immediately.

“The China desk was created in response to the increased demand for high quality international consulting services for both inbound and outbound initiatives related to China,” states ParenteBeard Chairman and CEO Bob Ciaruffoli. “Our firm recognizes the importance of providing exceptional client service that meets the specialized needs of our international client base.”

Headquartered in New York City, the China desk will provide an extensive line of services tailored specifically to clients either seeking to invest in China or China-based companies interested in expansion within the U.S. market. Led by Joe O’Neill, regional managing partner and tax practice leader, the China desk team will include international tax and audit professionals, including several members who are proficient in the Chinese, Cantonese, and Mandarin languages. Additional expertise will be provided by Partner Lawrence Gotfried leading the desk’s audit practice and Partner Michael Mathisen as lead of the desk’s tax practice. Both bring years of international experience and knowledge to help spearhead this new international initiative.

“We are excited for the opportunities that our China desk will provide to current and future clients. This is a true example of our commitment to delivering value added services that are customized for our broad range of clients,” said Joe O’Neill.
