St. Louis-based Top 100 Firm RubinBrown LLP will add the team members of Las Vegas-based CPA firm Bradshaw Smith & Co., effective June 1.

The combination is expected to bolster RubinBrown’s gaming practice, and make it the second-largest accounting firm in Las Vegas.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring more resources to our clients,” said Bradshaw Smith managing partner Douglas Winters. “RubinBrown’s culture of devotion to its team and unwavering commitment to excellence in client service is a perfect fit for us. We look forward to continuing to serve our clients alongside the team at RubinBrown.”

Bradshaw Smith will add 25 total team members, including six partners — Douglas Winters, Jeffrey Cooper, Michael Dobbins, Heather Grech, Jeffery Pero and Christy Lou Banton — to RubinBrown’s current Las Vegas office, which currently has 74 teams members, including 11 partners. The combined office will be led by Glenn Goodnough, the managing partner of RubinBrown’s Vegas practice.

Founded in 1976, Bradshaw Smith specializes in gaming, real estate, construction, broadcasting, nonprofit, medical and manufacturing services.

RubinBrown, which ranked No. 45 on Accounting Today’s 2019 ranking of the Top 100 Firms, with $110.9 million in revenue, first entered the Las Vegas market in 2017 when it combined with Stewart Archibald & Barney.
