Duff & Phelps Corporation (NYSE: DUF), a leading independent financial advisory and investment banking firm, has announced that it has added two new managing directors and a team of 10 professionals to its Morristown, New Jersey office.
Patrick J. Walsh, A.J. Borresen and their team bring significant expertise in tax planning and compliance to Duff & Phelps’ Transaction Tax Advisory Services practice, with significant experience in FAS 109 and FIN 48 consulting, merger and acquisition tax planning and due diligence, state and local tax planning, tax return preparation and earnings and profits studies.
Tab Weaver, leader of Duff & Phelps’ Tax Services practice, said, “This new team will considerably enhance our Transaction Tax Advisory Services group by providing additional tax advisory and related compliance services.
