Florham Park-based accounting firm Wiss opened an office in Boca Raton, Fla.
Managing Partner Paul Peterson called the expansion to Florida “a natural extension” for the firm, supporting growth in its family office and wealth management services in a market that continues to accelerate.
Wiss has provided tax and accounting services for five decades. Over the past several years, Peterson said, many clients have spent more of their time in Florida.
“[O]ur physical presence enables us to service their needs in a similar fashion they have become accustomed to,” Peterson said.
This is a growth period for the firm, with the Florida expansion piggybacking on a Jan. 1 acquisition of Neidich & Co., an accounting firm in Mountainside serving privately owned real estate companies.
Last year, Wiss received a variety of recognition, including top 100 list spots from Accounting Today and Inside Public Accounting.
