MNP LLP is entering the Sudbury, Canada, market with the addition of Laberge Venne & Partners. The merger is set to close by Sept. 1, 2013.

MNP was looking to add a key location in the area while LVP was seeking an opportunity to offer even more specialty services to its clients.

Based in Sudbury and Manitoulin Island, LVP has been operating since 2003, when it was formed by partners Mark Laberge, Guy Venne, Daryl Heinsohn and Angèle Charbonneau. Over the last 10 years the firm added six managers and 17 support staff. It serves clients in a number of communities, including Elliot Lake, Blind River, New Liskeard, Chapleau, Kapuskasing and Parry Sound. The firm provides a wide range of accounting, tax and consulting services, including valuation, litigation support and forensic accounting, to diverse industries.

"We were looking for an opportunity to not only add more resources but to offer more specialty services to our clients," LVP’partner Guy Venne said in a statement. "With experts in corporate finance, cross-border taxation, forensic accounting, valuation, risk management, consulting and so much more, MNP enhances our ability to ensure our clients maximize returns and reduce risks in every area of their business. We couldn't be more excited about joining forces."

MNP continues to see strong growth in a challenging economy through mergers. "We were looking to grow our practice through a strategic location in the Sudbury area and couldn't have found a better fit than LVP," executive vice president Sean Wallace said in a statement. "In addition to being regional leaders in accounting, they are a great fit with our culture and share our vision, values and commitment to providing personalized services. We are very much looking forward to growing together."
