The firm has also created a Private Company Practice Team dedicated to developing the private company audit and tax practices. Together, Forrest and Raines will lead the new team.

“Forrest and Raines are integral members of the MaloneBailey team whose expertise and deep knowledge of complex tax and audit services will be an invaluable resource to the PCPT,” said MaloneBailey managing partner Wesley Middleton.
