Rehmann is combining with Sobb Roberts, expanding the Michigan-based accounting firm’s presence in Toledo, Ohio.

Sobb Roberts has been providing tax, audit and consulting services in Toledo since 1993. Rehmann plans to supplement those with accounting, wealth management and corporate investigation services when the merger takes effect on September.

As part of the deal, 15 employees from Sobb Roberts will be joining Rehmann and the two firms plan to move to a new location in Toledo to accommodate the expanded staff. They currently have separate offices in the city.

“Expanding our presence in Ohio—Toledo especially—is important to us,” said Rehmann CEO Randy Rupp in a statement. “We’re very happy to be a part of the city’s business community, and combining with the well-respected and talented group at Sobb Roberts allows us to increase our presence here even further.”

Rehmann, based in Saginaw, Mich., ranked 30th on Accounting Today’s 2016 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $116 million in annual revenue. The firm has nearly 800 employees in 17 offices across Michigan, Ohio and Florida. It is part of the Nexia International accounting firm network.

“Our firms have a shared mission to provide the best tax, audit, assurance, wealth management and corporate investigation services possible—all while emphasizing practical and proactive solutions,” said Sobb Roberts partner Garry Roberts. “This business combination enables both parties to offer clients more by connecting them with local specialists and delivering valued business wisdom.”
