Sikich LLP has signed a letter of intent to merge with the Brookfield, Wis.-based public accounting and consulting firm Kolb+Co. The deal is expected to close August 1.

The new addition will be Sikich’s first Wisconsin-based office. “Merging with Kolb+Co. is an exciting opportunity for Sikich, as it will bring the firm into a brand-new geographic market and a wonderful group of clients; add to our top-notch accounting and advisory teams; and help us continue our rapid growth through expanding our offerings,” Jim Sikich, CEO and managing partner of Sikich, said in a statement.

Sikich will gain 15 partners and more than 60 professionals from the merger. Tom Luken, president of Kolb+Co., will join Sikich as a partner. He will assist with expanding the Sikich brand into the Wisconsin market.

New team members specialize in auditing, accounting, consulting, mergers and acquisitions advisory, retirement plan administration and design, tax consulting, compliance, information systems consulting and training for businesses as well as financial advisory services, tax planning and compliance for individuals.
