Gross Mendelsohn & Associates Merges with Northern Virginia CPA Firm

Gross Mendelsohn & Associates PA (FY14 net revenue of $18.6 million) of Baltimore, Md., announced its merger with Vogel Dean & Lill PLLC, of Fairfax, Va. The merger took effect Jan. 1.

The merger results in Gross Mendelsohn expanding into northern Virginia, one of the fastest growing markets in the country. Partners Mark Vogel and Taylor Dean joined Gross Mendelsohn along with seven employees. Vogel, Dean & Lill is known for its litigation support, business valuation and government contracting expertise.

“This merger is significant because it means Gross Mendelsohn will for the first time open a second office, but much more importantly, we will be able to promote the various specialty services the firm offers with a local presence in the northern Virginia market,” says David Goldner, MP at Gross Mendelsohn.

Goldner explained that Vogel, Dean & Lill’s clients will benefit from the merger because they will gain access to additional specialized services, such as technology consulting and investment management. Likewise, Gross Mendelsohn’s significant government contracting, litigation support and business valuation practice will gain even more depth as a result of the merger.

This merger, the second in two years for Gross Mendelsohn, brings the firm’s total personnel count to about 120. Two years ago the firm acquired Cox Ferber & Associates, which added one partner and six employees to the firm’s Baltimore office.
