Oklahoma firms announce merger

Oklahoma CPA firms Hogan & Slovacek and Tullius Taylor Sartain & Sartain (TTSS) have announced plans to merge their operations effective January, 2009. The resulting firm will be named HoganTaylor LLP and will have 165 employees.

Hogan & Slovacek has offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa; Tullius Taylor Sartain & Sartain, has offices in Tulsa and Fayetteville, Arkansas. All four offices are to remain open after the merger.

TTSS leading partner Bob Vaught said that the new firm plans to hire additional people as it seeks further specialization from its existing work force, according to a report from KFSM News in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

"The merger will give us a strength of expertise that will make us more attractive to larger clients," said Vaught, the Tulsa World reported.
