Aprio Combines With Fellow IPA 100 Firm

Atlanta-based IPA 100 firm Aprio LLP (FY21 net revenue of $170.8 million) is joining IPA 100 firm Aronson LLC of Rockville, Md. (FY21 net revenue of $70.3 million) in a strategic combination that will grow the former’s team to more than 1,400 professionals across 15 offices, including a new office in the nation’s capital.

“This year marks Aprio’s 70th anniversary and Aronson’s 60th – a historic year for both firms – and we’re thrilled to create and celebrate success with a like-minded firm as committed as Aprio is to being a top workplace and top CPA and advisory firm,” says Aprio MP and CEO Richard Kopelman. “Together, we will be creating exceptional experiences for our clients for the next 70 years and beyond.”

Founded in 1962, Aronson provides assurance, tax and consulting services to clients across a wide array of industries, including construction, real estate, government contracting, non-profit, professional services, technology, manufacturing, retail, hospitality and venture capital/private equity. When the deal closes on Jan. 1, Aronson’s 350 team members, including 42 partners, will join Aprio. Aronson MP Larry Davis and Lexy Kessler, who is set to become MP on Jan. 1, will both be admitted as Aprio partners, with Kessler serving as mid-Atlantic regional leader.

“Both Aronson and Aprio’s missions are to invest in clients’ success by investing in our own, and this merger achieves just that, creating the complete client experience and expanding opportunities for our team,” says Davis. “Through this strategic combination, we are gaining scale and depth but will continue to serve entrepreneur-led businesses.”
