Rehmann merges in Lamn, Krielow, Dytrych

Rehmann, a Top 100 Firm, is expanding its presence in Florida, by adding Lamn, Krielow, Dytrych & Co., a nearly 50-year-old firm based in Jupiter.

LKD dates back to 1970 and offers traditional audit, accounting and tax services, along with litigation support, business consulting and forensic accounting. LKD has 26 associates and approximately $5 million in annual revenue.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Rehmann, based in Troy, Michigan, ranked 38th on Accounting Today’s 2018 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $116 million in annual revenue.

“Our firms share compatible values that focus on our clients and associates,” said Rehmann CEO Randy Rupp in a statement. “Both firms understand the value of building strong client relationships and providing opportunities for associates that yield innovative and proactive solutions.”

LKD staff will continue to work from the Jupiter, Florida office, but now under the Rehmann brand.

“Rehmann shares our philosophy of helping our clients grow and succeed, and this combination will broaden our existing services, enabling us to offer even more comprehensive business advice,” said LKD owner and shareholder Marty Dytrych in a statement. “As we begin our next chapter, we are excited to increase the level of service options and experiences for our valued clients.”

In March, Rehmann merged in Trivalent Group, a managed IT services provider in Grandville, Michigan. Rehmann participated in several other M&A deals in January, combining with Wiebel, Hennells and Carufe, PLLC, a firm based in Bonita Springs, Florida and with Jana Knudson of Lutz & Knudson, PA., in Naples, Florida, effective Jan. 1, 2018. In its home state, Rehmann also entered into a business combination with Godfrey Wise Berg, CPAs & Advisors, LLC, based in Lansing, Michigan.
