Louisiana accounting firms LaPorte Sehrt Romig Hand CPAs and the Gautreau Group plan to merge on October 1.

The merged firms will operate under the LaPorte Sehrt Romig Hand name and will maintain LSRH's current offices in Metairie and Covington, while adding Gautreau's office in Baton Rouge. The combined firm will have a 110-person staff and revenue of more than $15 million.

LSRH has been serving the Baton Rouge area since 2003, focusing on health care, nonprofit and government clients, but the merger promises to expand the firm's presence in the city. Gautreau specializes in tax and consulting services for real estate entrepreneurs. The combined firm expects to be able to better support recovery efforts in New Orleans and business expansion in the area.

Gregory Romig, who has served as partner-in-charge of LSRH's Baton Rouge business, will manage the Baton Rouge office, in conjunction with fellow partners John Gautreau and Crissie Head. LSRH is an independently owned member of the RSM McGladrey Network.
