Councilor Buchanan & Mitchell Merges In Practice of William Blumenauer

Bethesda, Md.-based Councilor Buchanan & Mitchell (FY15 net revenue of $9.8 million) has expanded its tax service capabilities by merging in the practice of William G. Blumenauer, also of Bethesda, effective June 1.

“The professional services he and his team deliver complement CBM’s tax and accounting expertise,” says Peter Reilly, CBM’s president and MP. “We look forward to helping Bill’s clients through a smooth transition and providing them the same first-rate customer service for which we have long been proud.”

For 96 years, CBM has developed a reputation for delivering high-quality services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for auto dealerships, construction and real estate clients, not-for-profit organizations, professional service entities and family-owned businesses. CBM has grown significantly in recent years by merging in professional services firm Drolet & Associates, providing the firm with a Washington, D.C. office, and Stokes & Company, both in 2014.

“I look forward to joining with CBM,” says Blumenauer, who will serve as a senior tax advisor. “I believe my clients and I will benefit greatly from having the help of CBM’s experienced professionals to back up the high level of service I have worked hard to provide over the years.”

Blumenauer has specialized in delivering tax planning services to individual, attorney, corporate and nonprofit clients, including many facing complex tax situations such as multi-state and/or international filing requirements, as well as estate and gift planning services, since beginning his practice in 2013.
