McGuire Sponsel has merged with the consulting firm BT ProjectPoint. The new addition will assist organizations to secure project financing, provide swap and debt advisory services, and negotiate and secure economic incentives.

Douglass Dalton and Brian Wahl, who are principals at the firm, will oversee the Financing and Economic Incentives Practice. Dalton is experienced with finding tax-exempt and taxable financing and economic development incentives for corporate and nonprofit clients. Wahl focuses on sourcing and structuring of senior debt and economic incentives for corporate and nonprofit organizations.

“Our Financing and Economic Incentives Practice will represent a substantial diversification of our service offerings, expanding the scope of our services beyond specialty tax for the first time," McGuire Sponsel director TJ Sponsel said in a statement. "We believe this addition is critical to our ability to extend the value we deliver to our clients and partner CPA firms. This merger will enable McGuire Sponsel to provide greater resources and opportunities.”

The Financing and Economic Incentives Practice adds to the existing core areas of expertise for McGuire Sponsel, including R&D tax credits, fixed asset services, and IC-DISC services.
