Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based Porte Brown LLC announced it has merged with Brown Kaplan + Liss (BKL) of Evanston, Ill. The professionals from BKL, now operating under the Porte Brown name, will continue to service clients in their downtown Evanston location.

BKL provides accounting, assurance, attest, tax, planning and consulting services for businesses, business owners, trusts, estates and individuals in many fields, each of which has its own unique tax and regulatory circumstances.

“We are very excited about the new opportunities to work together with the team of Brown, Kaplan + Liss,” says Bruce Jones, MP of Porte Brown. “We have known BKL for years and just recently started to discuss a merger. Once we started to share our philosophies of client service, investing in top talent and the importance of supporting local businesses and communities, we knew it was a perfect fit.”
