Cherry Bekaert Adds Forensic and Dispute Advisory Practice with Acquisition

Richmond, Va.-based IPA 100 firm Cherry Bekaert (FY22 net revenue of $293 million) has acquired boutique forensic and litigation consulting firm Legier & Company of New Orleans.

Founded in 1984, Legier & Company provides management consulting and advisory services to clients across Louisiana and Texas, including expert witness, business interruption and forensic accounting services to law firms and large multinational corporations.

“The acquisition of Legier is a strategic step that provides the foundation to build our forensic accounting and dispute advisory offerings in the U.S. and meet the escalating demand in the market,” says Scott Moss, Cherry Bekaert’s private equity industry leader and transaction advisory practice leader. “Businesses are navigating disruptive challenges, and we’re dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value. Together, we meet this need.”

“Legier is recognized as one of the preeminent forensic boutiques in the country and was sought after by many suiters,” adds Allan Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group, who advised both sides on the merger. “Ultimately, they chose Cherry Bekaert because they felt it was a great cultural and strategic fit for their people and their clients.”
