“We have known and admired the team at BA Major for many years and we are excited about the prospects for our combined firm,” said Jonathan Marston, Co-Founder and Partner at WilliamsMarston.  “With more than 300 combined clients, we are absolutely thrilled to have Bruce, Brian and Leah leading our corporate tax practice into 2021 and beyond.”

“The Firm’s outstanding culture and exceptional reputation for client service made this a very compelling transaction for us,” said Brian Femia, Partner at BA Major Associates.  “The regulatory environment is increasingly complex, and we are excited to partner with the highly respected team at WilliamsMarston, offering our clients a deeper bench of experts and a more comprehensive suite of services to the office of the CFO.  We are confident this combination will accelerate the realization of our shared vision of building a national leader in accounting, tax and management consulting services.”
