Top 100 Firm Sikich has agreed to acquire Oak Brook, Illinois-based accounting firm Scanlan & Leo Ltd., effective Nov. 1, 2019.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but co-owners John Scanlan and Joseph Leo will be joining Sikich as partners, and a total of nine employees from the Scanlan & Leo team will join Sikich’s Naperville office.

This move will also give our employees access to new resources and growth opportunities.”
