CBIZ has acquired a six-member state tax consulting group from the firm Dow Lohnes Price.

CBIZ added the group, led by Geoff Christian and Marshal Kline, with an effective date of March 1. The group and their professional staff provide state tax consulting services for corporate business entities. The group was formerly a non-legal affiliate of the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Dow Lohnes PLLC.

The group will continue to provide state tax consulting services from their base in Greenville, S.C., but will also be integrated into the CBIZ National State and Local Tax Practice, reporting to CBIZ National State and Local Tax Practice leader Craig Williams. The expanded practice will continue to serve clients across the U.S.

“We are pleased to expand our state and local tax capabilities with such high-caliber professionals,” said CBIZ chairman and CEO Steven L. Gerard in a statement. “State and local taxes, in one form or another, are applicable to the vast majority of our clients. These professionals will allow us to continue serving our clients with the depth and expertise to which they are accustomed.”
