CliftonLarsonAllen Merges with 4 Firms in New Year
Jan 5, 2016
CliftonLarsonAllen has merged in four more firms—Four Point Partners, Guthoff Mehall Allen & Company, Komisar Brady & Co. LLP, and Galanti & Company P.C.—with all the deals effective Jan. 1, 2016. The latest mergers come on top of four others that CLA announced last month. “It wasn’t the first time we were approached by other firms,” said Marc Bouchard, a partner with Four Point Partners, in a statement. “After just one conversation you know if there is a compelling cultural fit. That matters in a relationship business—trust and empowerment enable our team to deliver optimal results.”

CLA said Four Point’s team of 75 would continue to serve clients locally and nationally from its current location in Edina, Minn., as a division of CLA. Guthoff Mehall Allen, a more than 40-year-old firm based in Bloomington, Ill., also plans to continue to serve clients locally and nationally from its current location. “Our industry becomes more complex and specialized all the time,” said Guthoff Mehall Allen partner Rick Mehall. “Joining CLA allows us to offer deeper resources and expertise to our clients, while retaining the close, personal attention our clients expect and appreciate from a small firm.”
Komisar Brady & Co., LLP, based in Milwaukee, will also remain in its current location. “We have always prided ourselves on working closely with our clients and providing personalized service,” said Komisar Brady managing partner Kathy Bennett. “We are fortunate to have found a great match in CLA which will allow for us to continue our long-practiced tradition of service as well as the ability to offer a broader range of support to our many clients.”
Galanti & Company’s team of more than 20 professionals will establish a presence in Atlanta for CLA, but will also continue to serve clients locally and nationally from its current Georgia location. “We’re excited to be the firm that introduces CLA to the Atlanta area,” said Galanti & Company managing partner Randy Galanti. “We take pride in what we do—embracing a team approach with attentiveness to our clients’ unique needs—and our clients have repaid us with their trust and loyalty.”
Minneapolis-based CLA announced a string of mergers with four other firms last month: Accounting Management Solutions in Waltham, Mass., Stanislawski & Harrison CPAs in Pasadena, Titus in Milwaukee and Chicago, and Gottlieb, Flekier & Co., in Overland Park, Kansas (see CliftonLarsonAllen Merges in Accounting Management Solutions , CliftonLarsonAllen Merges in Stanislawski & Harrison CPAs and Titus and CliftonLarsonAllen Merges in Gottlieb, Flekier & Co. ).
