Armanino McKenna LLP has opened a new tax practice in Silicon Valley focused on the unique tax issues facing high-technology firms.

The practice, which launched Jan. 1, focuses on international taxation, as well as state and local taxes and general tax strategy, and is led by four senior practitioners with experience in taxation for technology clients. They include David Sordello, partner-in-charge of the office and tax partner; Jon Davies, a partner specializing in international tax services; Craig Williams, a partner specializing in state and local tax services; and Malcolm Ellerbe, in tax services.

"We are thrilled to have four CPAs of this caliber join our firm and we believe their very specific experience in serving the high-technology sector will be very beneficial to Silicon Valley firms searching for Big Four sophistication from a local firm," said managing partner Andy Armanino, in a statement.

Armanino said that the new Silicon Valley practice signals the firm's continued entry into the global marketplace. The firm completed three mergers in 2005 and entered into partnership with Moore Stephens North America. Armanino McKenna was ranked No. 77 on Accounting Today's 2005 list of Top 100 Firms, with revenues of $25 million.
