Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra Acquires New York Firm

Miami-based Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra (FY09 net revenue of $64.2 million) merged with New York-based ERE LLP.

With the deal, MBAF will grow to about 430 employees. For about a year, ERE will be MBAF-ERE CPAs, a division of MBAF. After a year, all offices will be known as MBAF.

“This is very significant in the history of our firm,” says CEO and MP Tony Argiz. “We’ve never had a merger this big. This gives us a New York presence. In the past, not having a New York presence has hampered us somewhat.”

MBAF has offices in India, Baltimore and in three Florida cities, Miami, Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale. ERE has offices in New York City, Valhalla, N.Y., Boulder, Colo., and Chicago.
