Buffalo, N.Y. (Aug. 9, 2002) -- A Buffalo, N.Y. CPA firm has merged with a nearby firm to form a 45-partner office providing both traditional and non-traditional services.

Fifty-year-old Lumsden & McCormick LLP merged with Alden-based Stegmeier Smith & Lukowski. The combined firm will be known as Lumsden & McCormick and will offer audit, accounting and tax services, as well as management, valuation, computer technology and other business services.

The suburban Stegmeier firm was founded by a former Lumsden partner in 1981, who left to form his own firm, and took over the functions of Lumsden’s former Rochester office.

Richard Smith, Christopher Lukowski, Jeffrey Napieralski and Randall Duttweiler of the Stegmeier firm will become partners at Lumsden. Firm co-founder James Stegmeier died in July during the merger negotiations.
