Duff & Phelps has opened a Washington, D.C., area office by purchasing Dubinsky & Company, a Bethesda, Md., firm specializing in dispute and litigation support, fraud and forensic accounting, valuation and expert services. Bruce Dubinsky, the firm's president, becomes a Duff & Phelps managing director.
The firm says the acquisition complements its existing dispute and legal management business, which Managing Director Dan Peters calls "a growing area." The company said the acquisition provides a platform on which it can build out its services in the Washington area.
Dubinsky & Company has particular expertise in providing expert witness and forensic accounting services for companies in financial services, Duff & Phelps says. Its clients include law firms, corporations and U.S. government agencies.
