GREENVILLE, S.C. – Elliott Davis has entered into a joint marketing agreement with India-based Ashok Maheshwary & Associates to develop, support and facilitate U.S.-India bilateral business opportunities. The collaboration will provide a gateway for U.S. businesses who wish to establish a presence in India as well as for Indian businesses entering the U.S. market.


The dedicated U.S.-India Gateway will act as a conduit to connect clients with skilled professionals that meet their specific business needs. Teams from Elliott Davis and Ashok Maheshwary & Associates will work together to guide clients through a wide range of complex international business, tax and regulatory matters. This concentrated focus will afford deep insight with respect to the opportunities and challenges businesses face in conducting India-US activities and allow for a coordinated approach to service and rapid deployment of cross border support.


Thiru Govender, International Practice Shareholder at Elliott Davis will lead the Elliott Davis Gateway team. “We are excited about our arrangement with Ashok Maheshwary and Associates,” said Govender. “This collaboration will create a portal to assist and attract Indian capital investment in the U.S. and to guide U.S. companies considering global expansion into the Indian market of opportunity.”


“This new initiative is in sync with “Making things happen for our clients,” our core company value,” explained Ashok Maheshwari, Founding Partner, Ashok Maheshwary & Associates. “By supporting our clients in the U.S. as well as India, our firm continues to expand in newer geographies to extend our comprehensive service capability and presence around the world.”


The International Practice is a specialty area where Elliott Davis has forged ahead in response to demand. “International expansion may not be right for all companies,” said Managing Shareholder Rick Davis, “but for those who take that path, navigating the complexities of international tax, accounting and regulation can be a challenge. This gateway will provide a coordinated approach to better serve the needs of our clients.”
