Decosimo and Larry Hyatt & Associates Join

Larry Hyatt & Associates of Brentwood, Tenn., which specializes in state and local tax issues, is merging with Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Decosimo (FY12 net revenue of $35.6 million). “This merger will bring our existing clients additional expertise that is critical to businesses for state and local tax audits by taxing authorities, as these taxes are becoming increasingly burdensome and require resolution for sustained success and expansion,” said Decosimo MP Nick Decosimo. “This clearly is a mutually beneficial union for both firms and is expected to result in substantial growth.”
