Ferrier Hodgson Malaysia Sdn Bhd has joined the Baker Tilly Group as a Baker Tilly Malaysia Network member.
Since its establishment in Malaysia over 20 years ago, Ferrier Hodgson has steadily gained a reputation as one of the top advisory firms in Malaysia. The string of successes in helping companies rehabilitate and regularise their financial position over the last decade has also made Ferrier Hodgson a leader in its field, Baker Tilly said in a statement.
“The Ferrier Hodgson brand in Malaysia has always worked strategically with the Baker Tilly Malaysia brand due to the co-branding initiatives over the years. As Ferrier Hodgson continues to make headways in what is its third decade in Malaysia, it is fitting for the brand to now officially be part of the Baker Tilly Malaysia Network.
“With the synergy brought about by the combined expertise of over 50 Partners and Directors within the group, Baker Tilly Malaysia is poised to be the largest mid-tier professional services firm in Malaysia,” Baker Tilly said.
Dato’ Lock Peng Kuan, managing partner for audit & assurance of Baker Tilly Malaysia said, the Ferrier Hodgson team, headed by Patrick McPhee is known in the industry for providing specialist restructuring and forensic advisory.
“Having Patrick and his team officially on board gives clients immediate access to a comprehensive and diverse range of skill sets,” he said.
Patrick McPhee, managing partner of Ferrier Hodgson added: “We are excited to be officially joining forces with Baker Tilly Malaysia. This is a strategic and cultural fit for both firms, making us a highly competitive force and propelling us into the significant and very well-regarded Baker Tilly global network.
“Clients are increasingly looking for specialised advice and nimble service and this partnership provides just that – we will continue in our areas of specialisation while leveraging on the skills and reach of Baker Tilly to deliver a greater breadth of solutions.”
Andrew Heng, group managing partner, Baker Tilly Malaysia Group said, “The joining of forces has been a long time coming. I am very proud of what we have achieved and the impact that Ferrier Hodgson has made to corporate Malaysia in the last 20 years.
“The depth and breadth of experience that we now have has allowed us to be at the forefront of the changing corporate restructuring landscape in Malaysia. I have high hopes of what we can achieve together.”
