Looking to grow its footprint in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions, Atlanta-based IPA 100 firm Aprio LLP (FY21 net revenue of $170.8 million) is merging in Tobin & Collins of Hackensack, N.J., and Squire Lemkin + Company LLP (SL+Co) of Rockville, Md.
Tobin & Collins has been providing accounting and consulting services for over 50 years to a clientele that includes entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals and privately held companies in a broad range of industries, with a particular focus on the real estate sector. When the deal becomes effective on June 1, 43 team members and four partners will join Aprio.
Founded in 1997, SL+Co provides accounting, tax, financial planning, business consulting and management advisory services to a diverse client base focused on high-net-worth individuals and privately held businesses and their owners. The former SL+Co office – comprised of 25 team members and five partners – will join Aprio’s existing mid-Atlantic team, effective June 1.
“Tobin & Collins broadens Aprio’s national real estate segment while expanding our capabilities for our clients, while SL+Co’s will drive continued growth in the mid-Atlantic region serving clients with high-net-worth and professional service needs,” says Aprio CEO and MP Richard Kopelman. “Together, as like-minded firms, we will aggressively build out our real estate and trust and estate client roster in the Northeast.”
