Raleigh, N.C., March 14, 2022 – DHG is pleased to welcome Ben Romeiser as a Tax Specialty Partner, primarily focused on serving private equity portfolio company clients. Ben has more than 20 years of experience working with clients to help navigate complex tax issues when acquiring, selling, or reorganizing businesses. In his new role, he will work closely with DHG’s Private Equity and Transaction Advisory practices to serve as a trusted advisor for clients throughout the entire transaction process. He will help private equity groups and portfolio companies with transaction tax-related issues, post-deal integration, tax risk mitigation and remediation, tax-efficient structuring, and exit planning strategies.
“More and more middle market companies are interested in exploring expansion or acquisition opportunities to increase growth and financial stability, due to the many implications from COVID-19 coupled with our changing business regulatory landscape. With immense opportunity for growth in DHG’s Private Equity service offerings, Ben’s technical skills and extensive experience will help us expand private equity tax services and meet the current demand we are seeing in the market,” commented Scott Linch, Managing Partner of DHG’s Private Equity practice.
Based in Raleigh, Ben will serve clients across DHG’s footprint and work closely with teams across the firm to grow private equity tax service offerings, including private equity deal flow, tax integration planning, tax due diligence advising, tax purchase price allocation, net operating losses, annuity tax compliance, and voluntary disclosure agreements for state taxes. Growth will remain a focus for the firm as DHG recently announced an agreement to merge with BKD effective June 1, 2022. Together, the new, Top-10 firm will have a significantly larger national reach and presence allowing it to quickly pivot to new market opportunities as they arise. The new firm will also offer expanded advisory services and deep industry focus.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ben to our Federal Tax Specialty practice. Our industry-focused approach allows our teams to work cross-functionally to best serve clients. I look forward to working closely with Ben to drive strategic planning and growth in our tax services for private equity clients, especially in further developing and deploying our full suite of buy-to-sell tax services,” commented Joshua Elliott, Leader of the Federal Tax Specialty practice.
Before joining DHG, Ben was a Principal at an accounting firm in Raleigh, NC. He also has prior Big Four firm experience serving tax clients across the Private Equity, Manufacturing and Distribution, Technology and Life Sciences industries. Ben received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and is a licensed CPA in both North Carolina and Virginia.
