Friedman LLP opens 5th N.J.-based office

Accounting firm Friedman LLP announced Monday it has opened a new office in Monmouth County.

The new space in Red Bank is Friedman’s fifth office in New Jersey, it said. Its other locations in the state include East Hanover, Marlton, Toms River and Linwood.

Randall M. Paulikens, a partner in the Forensic, Litigation and Valuation Services group, will head the Red Bank office. He will be responsible for expanding the firm’s forensic reach throughout the Northeast.

“On behalf of everyone at Friedman, we are thrilled to continue expanding within New Jersey,” Paulikens said. “Our Red Bank office will offer greater convenience for existing clients. Furthermore, our space at The Galleria, a mixed use space home to restaurants and cozy shops, shows the Jersey Shore’s many charms and will be a great place to work.”

The office will be located in The Galleria Red Bank, a 2.7-acre building initially used as a uniform factory. The site now rents space to professional offices, restaurants, retailers and health services; hosts special events; and more.
