Houston-based Briggs Vaselka Makes Acquistion

Houston-based Briggs Vaselka (FY11 net revenue of $19.8 million) acquired White Garrison & Hill of Houston.

Partners James “Jim” O. White, Jr. and Brenda G. White will join Briggs & Veselka along with former White Garrison & Hill staff, who relocated to Briggs & Veselka’s offices.

The acquisition was effective Dec. 31, 2012. “White Garrison & Hill shared similarities with Briggs & Veselka in both their culture and ideal client base, and we are happy to have them on our team,” said Briggs & Veselka MP John Flatowicz in a statement. “In addition to our goals of hiring experienced professionals and attracting new clients, we are looking for similarly aligned and reputable public accounting firms to acquire – all of which support increased market share in the Houston area.”
