Brabender Mascetta Pattison Merges Joins HBK CPAs & Consultants

Canfield, Ohio-based HBK CPAs & Consultants (FY16 net revenue of $60.6 million) merged with appraisal firm Brabender Mascetta Pattison of Pittsburgh. The merger extends HBK’s presence in the Pittsburgh region, and broadens the reach and depth of its HBK valuation, litigation and forensics business unit.

“Brabender Mascetta Pattison’s history of excellence in valuation and litigation support, particularly in the area of family law, was the impetus for pursuing a union between the two firms,” says Kelly Carrier, HKBVG PIC.

“This couldn’t work without there being cultural alignment, though. Like the professionals in HBK’s valuation, litigation and forensics group, BMP’s professionals are knowledgeable and credentialed; thorough, efficient and straightforward; and they are well respected by clients, attorneys and courts as independent, objective and ethical.”

“Since the founding of our firm in 2000, we have attempted to meet the challenge of providing uncompromising quality for our clients,” says Richard Brabender.

The Brabender Mascetta Pattison team remains intact and will continue to operate from its offices in downtown Pittsburgh. Their main area of concentration is business valuation and litigation support for sales, acquisitions, mergers, ESOP’s, succession planning, estate planning, estate and gift tax returns and borrowing. They also provide economic analyses related to marital litigation as well as damage lawsuits, shareholder disputes and other forms of litigation involving financial matters.
