Moss Adams and Mohler, Nixon & Williams Combine

Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest accounting and business consulting firms in the nation, announced December 5, 2012, that it would combine with Silicon Valley-based accounting firm Mohler, Nixon & Williams. The combination strengthens the presence of Moss Adams in one of the most significant technology and venture capital regions in the country, and provides Mohler, Nixon & Williams with added expertise in several industries, as well as additional international, state, and local tax resources. The combination, which was approved by the partners of both firms, was effective January 1, 2013.

"Combining Moss Adams and Mohler, Nixon & Williams positions us to meet the accounting and business consulting needs of the expanding business community in Silicon Valley and across California," said Rick Anderson, CEO of Moss Adams LLP. "Mohler, Nixon & Williams is highly regarded in Silicon Valley, and we are thrilled to welcome their talented partners and staff. Our future together couldn't be brighter."
 
Mohler, Nixon & Williams is considered a premier provider of services to the technology industry in particular. Founded in 1986, the firm is one of the largest locally based CPA firms in California, with 25 partners and more than 160 personnel. Mohler, Nixon & Williams offers a wide range of corporate and individual tax, accounting, audit, internal control, and consulting services to publicly traded and privately held businesses of all sizes as well as to individuals. In addition, Mohler, Nixon & Williams conducts more employee benefit plan audits annually than any other firm in the Bay Area. Together with the expansive employee benefit services practice of Moss Adams, the combined practice will be one of the largest in the nation.
 
"Both Mohler, Nixon & Williams and Moss Adams are like-minded firms with similar business ideals and goals, and we couldn't ask for a better partner in this combination," said Steve Vidlock, CEO and managing partner of Mohler, Nixon & Williams. "The quality of work at Moss Adams and its partners, staff, and clients command incredible respect in our industry. We've known each other for years, and as we looked toward continuing our firm's success, combining with Moss Adams presented an exciting opportunity for the future of our firm."
 
In spring 2013, the Santa Clara office of Moss Adams will migrate to the current Mohler, Nixon & Williams office in Campbell, and the San Francisco office of Mohler, Nixon & Williams will combine with the Moss Adams office in the city. All Mohler, Nixon & Williams partners and substantially all of its employees are expected to join Moss Adams.
 
"Moss Adams is serious about California, and combining with Mohler, Nixon & Williams advances our strategy of working with the best in the business," said Chris Schmidt, incoming CEO and current president and COO of Moss Adams. "As Moss Adams enters its second century of success, we are continuously looking to expand how and where we serve our clients. Combining with Mohler, Nixon & Williams is a huge step forward in this direction."
