ParenteBeard’s Bob Gray, a partner in our Forensic, Litigation and Valuation Services group, was quoted in a Journal of Accountancy article, “Survey: Business development now tops FVS practitioners’ list of concerns,” on March 14, 2013.

Mr. Gray provides insight regarding the changing top priorities for forensic and valuation services (FVS) accountants over the past few years.

Additionally, he is a member of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants’ Business Valuation and Litigation Services committee.
