Atlanta firms announce merger

Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP, one of the country’s top-100 CPA firms, announced that the shareholders and staff of Tauber & Balser, P.C., have joined HA&W effective November 1.

This event brings together the resources and expertise of accountants and consultants in two of Atlanta’s top-25 accounting firms. With the addition of approximately 60 Tauber & Balser personnel, the number of HA&W staff will exceed 350. All Tauber & Balser staff will relocate to HA&W’s new offices in the Concourse Office Complex.

“Adding the personnel from Tauber & Balser allows us to extend our range of expertise, in the areas of forensic accounting, litigation support, and SEC-registered companies,” said Dan Simms, managing partner, HA&W. “The chemistry is exceptional, and the fact that we both already focus on some of the same industries only strengthens our position as leading experts. Needless to say, with a larger organization, we will be able to pursue additional business opportunities throughout the Southeast that will significantly contribute to our current and future growth and service strategies.”

The personnel with Tauber & Balser offer a full range of services, primarily to mid-market companies and their executives, that includes accounting and auditing; business consulting; business valuation; estate planning; forensic accounting; litigation support; mergers and acquisitions; and taxation. They built specialized expertise working with family business, not-for-profit organizations, public companies, and real estate firms. Their diversified client work also includes law firms, financial institutions, insurance companies, government agencies, privately owned businesses and high-net- worth individuals. Because of their work, their firm has twice been named one of the “Best of the Best Firms” by Inside Public Accounting.

“We are creating an exceptional organization with a deep knowledge base to identify and solve economic and financial problems for leading businesses in the Southeast,” said Mark I. Murovitz, managing shareholder, Tauber & Balser. “This would not have been possible without the shared vision of creating a service-oriented firm that truly has its clients’ best interests at heart. We look forward to not only providing our clients with the expanded services that HA&W will now offer, but also giving our staff more opportunity for growth and advancement by being part of a larger organization.”
