Clifton Gunderson LLP, the nation’s 13th largest public accounting and consulting firm, has announced the acquisition of Chavarria Dunne & Lamey LLC of Albuquerque, NM, effective April 1, 2007.
Partners and employees of CD&L will join Clifton Gunderson and remain at their current Albuquerque offices. The merger brings three partners and more than 100 employees into Clifton Gunderson’s nationwide practice.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
