Chicago-based Grant Thornton LLP (FY13 net revenue of $1.3 billion) has opened a new office in Stamford, Conn.

Nearly 50 current Grant Thornton employees began work at 300 First Stamford Place in Stamford. The firm also operates an office at 124 Hebron Ave. in Glastonbury, Conn.

“Expanding our presence in Connecticut allows us to better serve our current and future growth-oriented clients in the area and bring to bear for them Grant Thornton’s national and international resources,” says Lawrence Griff, Grant Thornton’s PIC of the Stamford and Westchester, N.Y., practices. “The new office will provide a fresh option for local companies in private equity, financial services, insurance, not-for-profit, health care, technology and manufacturing, among many other industries.”

“This office opening marks the latest milestone in the continued growth of our Metro New York and New England practice, the firm’s largest geographic practice. Our strategy includes better allocation of our people throughout the region,” says Frank Kurre, Grant Thornton’s Metro New York and New England MP. “Our Stamford office houses a wide array of resources that include audit, tax and advisory services personnel. Our new space is designed to support the firm’s rapid growth in the region, while enhancing employee collaboration and innovation — allowing us to better support our people as they interact with our clients.”
