Clifton Park, NY – June 13, 2019. Seasoned financial experts, Pamela D. Wickes, CPA, CFE, CFF, ABV, and Scott DeMarco, MBA, CBA, CVA, CDFA, CPVA, have joined forces with an affiliate partnership. Their businesses, Wickes Forensic Accounting & Consulting, LLC and Equitable Value, LLC, are now together at a new location in Clifton Park, New York, in addition to operating in New York City.
DeMarco said, “During the last four years, there have been times when clients have retained Pam and I separately to work on different aspects of the client’s case. In those situations, Pam does the financial investigation to address various allegations/concerns and then I perform the valuation work. Due to the synergies of our practices, it was a smart move to bring our teams together. Doing so makes it easier for our clients to hire us [under one agreement, instead of two] and simpler for us all to communicate and share case information.”
Wickes and DeMarco are financial experts that, for the most part, focus on different niche practice areas. DeMarco’s is concentrated in business valuations for litigated matters. Equitable Value also provides value related services for acquisitions, transition planning and more. Wickes’ practice mainly includes various financial investigations, asset and transaction tracings, fraud examinations, and determination of economic damages / forensic economics. Both experts have experience in many types of legal matters and they also provide matrimonial accounting and consulting services, as well as a variety of litigation support services.
“Scott and I worked at a firm together several years ago so we already knew each other’s high quality work product and work ethic. That made it easy for us to team up. I’m excited that, with our affiliate partnership, our clients now have access to more services and expertise under one roof,” said Wickes.
