Wipfli LLP Acquires Spokane Firm

Milwaukee-based Wipfli LLP (FY10 net revenue of $114.4 million) acquired Michael R. Bell & Company (two partners and 17 staff) of Spokane, Wash., on Aug. 1.

The newly acquired firm provides audit, accounting and consulting services to a variety of health care organizations and will become part of Wipfli’s full-service health care industry practice.

“We are thrilled that Michael R. Bell & Company has joined Wipfli,” says Rick Dreher, Wipfli’s MP. “Wipfli currently offers our health care clients a wide range of audit, tax and consulting services and has a number of clients in the western half of the U.S., but joining forces with Michael R. Bell will help us to expand into that area officially and serve a larger portion of it,” Dreher says.
