The Rehmann Group accounting firm said it plans to merge with another Michigan firm, Pridnia LaPres, effective Jan. 1, 2009.

The merger with Muskegon-based Pridnia will better position Rehmann in the Lakeshore market among small businesses and middle-market companies, according to Rehmann chairman and CEO Steve Kelly. "Companies have been looking for alternatives in the professional services marketplace, and we believe the merger further enhances our position as that strong alternative," he said in a statement.

Both firms concentrate on servicing closely held and family-owned businesses. Rehmann also targets health care, manufacturing, distribution, real estate, construction, government, nonprofit and international services clients.

Rehmann, based in Saginaw, Mich., ranked 38th on Accounting Today's list of the Top 100 Firms, with $64.3 million in revenue.
