White Garrison’s employees and shareholders, James White, Jr. and Brenda White, have already relocated to Briggs & Veselka's Houston office.
“White Garrison & Hill shared similarities with Briggs & Veselka in both their culture and ideal client base, and we are happy to have them on our team,” Briggs & Veselka’s managing shareholder John Flatowicz said in a statement. “In addition to our goals of hiring experienced professionals and attracting new clients, we are looking for similarly aligned and reputable public accounting firms to acquire — all of which support increased market share in the Houston area.”
Briggs & Veselka, which has been in business since 1973, now has more than 150 employees and 18 shareholders, offering tax, audit and a wide range of business advisory services, from fraud examination and business valuations to M&A support and international tax services.
