Squar Milner LLP, the largest accounting firm headquartered in Orange County, is combining with a Chicago firm to create one of the 10 biggest firms in the nation.
Baker Tilly US LLP and Squar Milner today announced they would combine their firms as of Nov. 1. The name of the combined firm will be Baker Tilly US.
“We are still very much dedicated to serving our California communities, and we are delighted to have the coast-to-coast and global advantage,” Squar Milner Managing Partner Stephen Milner said in a statement. “Our firms are likeminded in our commitment to our clients, support for our profession and putting people at the center of it all.”
Squar Milner has eight California locations, including its headquarters in Irvine. Combined, the two firms will have 4,300 employees.
