The Ballentine Barbera Group, a CRA International Company, Establishes Presence in Continental Europe to Offer Transfer Pricing Services

CRA International, Inc., a worldwide leader in providing economic, financial, and management consulting services, has announced it is offering transfer pricing services in the Netherlands. The Ballentine Barbera Group, which CRA acquired earlier this year, has hired Gerben Weistra as a Director in Amsterdam, giving CRA’s Transfer Pricing practice a physical presence in continental Europe for the first time. The Ballentine Barbera Group, a CRA International Company, already provided transfer pricing services from offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

“We are thrilled to have Gerben join us” said Transfer Pricing Practice Leader Greg Ballentine. “Our clients have been encouraging us to develop a presence on the Continent, but we wanted to find the right person first.”

In his almost ten years as a transfer pricing advisor, first with PricewaterhouseCoopers, then with IntraPrice, and, most recently, with LECG, Mr. Weistra has worked with numerous multinational groups to assist in planning, documenting and implementing tax, and transfer pricing strategies.

CRA International’s President and CEO James C. Burrows said, “Our acquisition of the Ballentine Barbera Group in May 2006 put CRA on the map as a global leader in transfer pricing. Now, with a stronger presence in continental Europe, we are well-positioned for continued growth in one of the world’s most active and competitive markets for transfer pricing services.”
