RubinBrown Acquires Saltzman Hamma Nelson Massaro

St. Louis-based RubinBrown LLP (FY10 net revenue of $54.3 million) acquired Saltzman Hamma Nelson Massaro LLP (FY09 net revenue of $5.1 million) of Denver.

The new entity will operate as RubinBrown and will employ 375 people in offices in Denver, St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo. The merger was effective Aug. 1.

RubinBrown has been looking for a third regional office since it expanded into the Kansas City market in late 2005, principals say.

“Colorado currently has three of the nation’s top ten mid-sized business cities,” John Herber Jr., RubinBrown MP, said in a statement, referring to Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. “Plus it is a strong center for government, energy and technology. We see future growth in many of our areas of specialization.”

All SHNM partners will continue as partners in the expanded RubinBrown and current SHNM Gregory Osborn will continue in his role as MP of the Denver office.
