About Friedman LLP

Shorter and stronger 

For most of its life, Friedman LLP operated under a much longer moniker: Friedman Alpren & Green LLP. The firm was founded in 1924 as A. Albert Greenspan & Co., becoming Friedman Alpren & Green in 1948. A series of mergers marked its development in modern times, starting in 1997 with the acquisition of Putterman, Rush & Shapiro LLP. In 2003, the firm grew again, merging with Long Island's Deutsch, Marin & Company. The merger that redefined Friedman Alpren & Green came in 2004 when it entered into an agreement with New Jersey-based Ehrenkrantz Sterling & Company, a deal that added 44 new employees. That was when the firm's partners decided it was time for a name change, lopping off Alpren and Green to become simply Friedman LLP. Friedman Alpren Managing Partner Bruce Madnick stayed on at the helm. According to Madnick, the Ehrenkrantz deal came about because both companies were members of the DFK International network of independent accounting firms, so they were able to get the merger started on a handshake. Today, the New York City-headquartered Friedman is the largest member firm of DFK International, employing approximately 350 people, including nearly 60 partners. In its latest fiscal year, the firm booked $81 million in revenues.
