Most people and many businesses only think of their
accounting firm once or twice a year and then, only to run the numbers
for how they might impact taxes or the business itself. But clients
of Amper, Politziner & Mattia (AP&M) know that their accounting firm
goes beyond the traditional image that the industry has borne since
its inception. In fact, AP&M raises the bar on what an accounting
firm can and should be.
Founded in 1965, AP&M is the 33rd largest accounting and consulting
firm in the United States, with offices in New Jersey in Edison,
Flemington, and Wall Township. Originally founded as an accounting
& consulting firm for small to mid-size businesses, the tremendous
growth of AP&M directly reflects the growth of New Jersey businesses
today, particularly with the boon in technology business and, the
changes in the healthcare and service industry sectors, notes Philip
Politziner, President of Amper, Politziner, & Mattia.
"At AP&M, we have industry consultants and accountants dedicated
to assisting businesses with their specific technology needs, from
hardware and software to e-commerce strategies and security. We have
added a service group that meets the specialized needs of growing
technology companies, to go along with existing specialty groups in
manufacturing and distribution, healthcare, and emerging
Politziner says. AP&M offers accounting and auditing, tax (state,
multi-state, federal, and international), and litigation support
as well as management consulting, and business services consulting
to a broad range of industries.
"At AP&M," Politziner says, "we maintain a regional firm
atmosphere without the levels of bureaucracy which widen the gap
client and advisor. With a staff of 200, we are large enough to have
the resources and personnel to resolve the most complicated tax or
sophisticated auditing/accounting issue, but through our regional
offices, small enough to give clients the personal attention they
"Though we’re an accounting firm, we’re about more than just
We work with clients on all the issues affecting their businesses
to help them succeed. Contradictory to the image of traditional
our philosophy is based on being able to see beyond the numbers,"

Ranked in the Top 20 law firms in the state, Archer
& Greiner has become one of the largest law firms in the state with
over 108 attorneys. "But," notes Richard M. Conley, Managing
Partner of the Princeton office, "We’re still growing."
the firm’s recent staff additions. "Our Princeton office has
its staff with the recent addition of attorneys Katharine Benesch
and Robert Fogg, specialists in the area of health care law, and state
and local Tax Specialist Jeffrey D. Gordon, formerly with McCarter
and English in Newark. Flemington has also added two more attorneys,
with more staff additions pending."
The firm’s strategic plan for growth complements its business
of offering clients a single resource for expert legal guidance across
distinct areas of concentration. But it takes more than success in
the field to join the staff at Archer & Greiner. First and foremost,
it takes a commitment to serving the client and a desire for
success for the client, which inevitably translates into success for
the attorney and for the firm as a whole.
Recent successes for the firm include settling a tax case regarding
the Merrill Lynch headquarters complex in Plainsboro Township, an
$850,000 plus verdict from a Monmouth County jury, a precedent-setting
decision involving cloning of cellular telephones, and a $5.5 million
settlement of an action involving a fatal automobile accident
on Route 1 in Princeton. In addition, the firm’s success has garnered
industry recognition. Last year, Archer & Greiner attorneys were
in The Best Lawyers in America, 1999-2000. In addition, New Jersey
Monthly noted attorneys Pete Driscoll, Steve Suflas, Lee Hymerling,
and Gary Lesneski as the top lawyers in NJ.
Says Conley, "Our attorneys are among the leaders in the legal
profession in our region." Past and present members include a
Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit,
a former Attorney General of the State of New Jersey, a former
of the New Jersey State Bar Association and Chairman of the New Jersey
Casino Control Commission, presidents of the Camden, Hunterdon and
Princeton Bar Associations, as well as numerous shareholders and
who serve on various Supreme Court committees as well as the New
and American Bar Associations.
Conley notes that the firm takes great pride in "a job well done.
Our win-loss record is only one indication of a quality working
Clients have access to their attorneys and always receive prompt,
courteous responses to their questions and needs. And," adds Conley,
"our ratio of one partner per associate assures our clients that
when they hire a lawyer, they work with that lawyer and a well-trained
associate, not a team of recent law school graduates. We take pride
that our work is hands-on, not passed down."
Archer & Greiner has offices in Lawrenceville, Princeton,
and Flemington. The firm provides legal counseling in the areas of
corporate law, estates and trusts, labor law, litigation, matrimonial
law, real estate, with practice groups in the fields of banking,
and creditors rights, computer and high technology, education,
law, health law, immigration, insurance, intellectual property, land
use and environmental permitting, media and communications, personal
injury litigation, public finance, real estate tax appeals, small
and family business, tax, and transactional real estate.

In today’s housing market, properties sell very quickly.
So quickly, in fact, that unexpected complications may arise. Imagine
what you might do if you sold your property and found that your new
home was not yet ready to move into.
Fortunately, there is a unique business called Churchill Corporate
Services that would be able to help you out of your dilemma. Located
in Princeton, Churchill has over 20 years in the home and office
rental business. In 1996 Churchill recognized the need to provide
short term housing in a very tight rental market. Churchill Corporate
Services is the leading provider of furnished housing and furniture
rental in the tri-state area.
Arlene Goldberg, Corporate Account Executive at Churchill, works
with her associate Dolores DeLorenzo to accommodate the many needs
of their clients. "It’s amazing," says Goldberg, "one
day we might be helping to relocate an international employee of a
local business, the next day we could be furnishing a model home for
a construction company."
On average, most properties are leased for a minimum of three months
and a maximum of two years. "We are even able to produce that
rarity — a rental for only one month," says Goldberg. "The
sites come fully equipped, all the way from furniture, to linens,
to kitchenware. We have six office/showrooms in the tri-state area
and are especially excited about the Princeton showroom that we opened
in June of last year. The showroom is a fine example of what we
provide in our rental units; some even describe the showroom as on
a par with a Bloomingdale’s display!"
Churchill Corporate Services can provide accommodations at 40% less
than hotel or suite expenditures, and all furniture collections are
available with the option to buy.

With an affinity for long-term, ongoing real estate
partnerships, a commitment to exceeding the expectations of their
clients, and an uncompromising dedication to the highest quality in
workmanship and materials, the professionals at King Interests have
been quietly carving a niche in the Princeton area as a full-service
real estate firm for a discriminating and demanding clientele.
The company’s range of turnkey real estate services — development,
construction, leasing, management, and financing — are appropriate
both for fast-growing companies with expanding real estate
and for those simply seeking the highest level of personalized
and professionalism for any real estate matter.
For King, longstanding client relationships are a natural result of
the company’s service-oriented philosophy. "We believe that by
serving the interests of our clients first, the success of our own
firm will follow," says William F. King III, President and Chief
Reflecting King’s own high standards of achievement, the company’s
roster of influential clients and landmark projects showcase a vision
that ventures beyond commercial real estate’s conventional parameters.
King acts as the real estate arm for two of Princeton’s
technology-based companies, RCN Corporation and PharmaNet, Inc. And,
in a relationship built on an unusually high level of trust, King
represents the real estate interests of Topton, PA-based Lutheran
Services Northeast, a major church sponsored services organization.
One of King’s most challenging and intriguing projects was leading
the development and construction of a new headquarters for the
Atlantic Foundation, headed by J. Seward Johnson. Recently completed
and sited on Hamilton’s Grounds for Sculpture, the facility replicates
an 18th-century Belgian village. The project also included
of a new world-class restaurant, called "Rats."
Bill King, trained as an architectural engineer, has more than twenty
years of commercial real estate experience, starting with his first
job heading the construction team of the famed Jasna Polana estate
and leading up to positions such as partner in charge of construction
for the award-winning Carnegie Center business park. Mr. King was
also development partner for East Brunswick’s Tower Center, a
office and hotel complex.
King Interest’s current ventures include two key projects that lie
in RCN’s future. King has been conducting the site selection process
for a new one million square-foot headquarters for the fast-growing
company. King Interests has likewise led the search for several
acres that will be home to a new $12 million training facility for
For Pharmanet, the company is leasing office space throughout the
country as that firm expands its operations. And finally, King has
begun laying the groundwork for several innovative, large scale
projects for its own investment portfolio.
King Interests, headquartered in Princeton, is a full-service real
estate company that purchases, designs, constructs, manages and leases
properties for clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. With more
than 25 years of experience, King Interests has been associated with
premier and award-winning commercial projects throughout its market
You spent unprecedented amounts of money to make sure
that your existing computers were up and running on January 1st. Maybe
you even ended up purchasing completely new computer networks in
for the event. In any case, you survived the Y2K scare, and
are in order. It is now up to you to make sure that those technology
dollars were not spent in vain. Here are the facts that face the
IT manager today: According to a Gartner group study, over 80% of
today’s jobs are computer related, and this number grows every year.
In addition to that, the shortage of the qualified computer employees
in America is in the millions. Even if companies are lucky enough
to have the people they need, the knowledge simply isn’t there. It
has been estimated that the average employee utilizes only 25% of
their computer’s capabilities.
It may seem like a depressing situation, but there is a solution to
this problem. New Horizons Computer Learning Center has been operating
in their Princeton location since January 4, 1999. Since that opening
day, it has been their goal to make sure businesses get the biggest
return on their computer investment dollar through the latest in
training solutions. The lure of E-commerce is very strong. Many
already do business on the internet, and more hope to follow suit.
Now more than ever there is a need for qualified people to make that
To fill that need, New Horizons offers the Certified Internet
(CIW) accreditation. It allows individuals to learn the skills
to deploy E-business solutions and provides area employers with a
standard for judging expertise in a broad range of Internet
Many local businesses are using Microsoft products to fulfill their
networking, database, and programming needs. The products are changing
rapidly, and it will be necessary to keep the engineers, technicians
and programmers up to date on the latest product updates. New Horizons
is the area’s premier Microsoft Certified Technical Education Center
(CTEC.) As a Microsoft authorized center, customers can be assured
that certified instructors are teaching from the latest authorized
materials that meet stringent Microsoft requirements.
New Horizons is already qualified to offer training on the latest
certifications in Windows 2000 as well as NT 4.0, Visual Basic, SQL
Server, and others. For those IT managers who understand the need
to train their people, but can’t afford to let their people take
time away to do it, there is an answer.
The latest training trend for this scenario is Web-Based Training
(WBT), which complements the more traditional Instructor-Led Training
with a learning option that makes the boundaries of time and location
irrelevant. Students will be able to learn the latest technologies
at their own pace without giving up the personalized service found
in an instructor led course. For the managers, a comprehensive student
tracking system enables tracking their employees’ progress in the
program. In a time-crunched computer industry such as this, WBT

Gary LaSasso, president and co-founder of New Media Partners.
"New Media Partners helps clients take their presentations to
the next level by adding the pizzazz of such things as 3D animated

hard for people to visualize what they cannot see, but with over 10
years experience in the industry helping small to large businesses
take the stress out of dealing with these often pivotal and critical
presentations, LaSasso, Gallagher and their experienced staff can
help clients create a unique and high impact presentation.
