Chattanooga-based Top 100 Firm Decosimo has merged with Larry Hyatt & Associates boosting its state and local tax expertise.

Larry Hyatt will join Decosimo as principal and director of state and local tax.

The merger will give Brentwood-based Larry Hyatt & Associates’ clients access to additional tax, audit, valuation, due diligence and other consulting capabilities, while enhancing the SALT expertise at Decosimo’s nine offices in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Ohio.

“This merger will bring our existing clients additional expertise that is critical to businesses for state and local tax audits by taxing authorities, as these taxes are becoming increasingly burdensome and require resolution for sustained success and expansion,” said Decosimo managing principal Nick Decosimo. “This clearly is a mutually beneficial union for both firms and is expected to result in substantial growth.”

In addition to Decosimo’s existing downtown Nashville location, the newly merged firms will have space in Brentwood’s Maryland Farms office park. 

Decosimo ranked No. 86 on Accounting Today’s 2013 list of the Top 100 Firms, with net revenue of $36.21 million.
