Montana Firm JOSEPH EVE Joins Wipfli

Milwaukee-based Wipfli (FY17 net revenue of $274.8 million) has acquired Great Falls, Mont.-based JOSEPH EVE.

JOSEPH EVE provides accounting, tax and consulting services to businesses and individuals, with a strong focus on serving tribal governments and the gaming industry. This is the second combination for Wipfli in Montana in three years.

“Through this merger we will continue to strengthen Wipfli’s physical presence in the Northwestern United States, which is a key market for the firm. The combination also presents Wipfli with opportunities to provide an even greater breadth and depth of services and resources to our clients across all the tribal government and gaming clients,” says Rick Dreher, Wipfli’s MP.

As part of this combination, JOSEPH EVE’s professionals, including four partners, have joined Wipfli. Founded in 1983, JOSEPH EVE is an accounting and consulting firm with a collection of 64 certified public accountants, certified fraud examiners, information technology experts and other various specialty team members who provide a wide range of accounting, tax and consulting services for clients in 30 states.

“This combination will result in a stronger practice, allowing us to offer our clients a greater array of requested services, along with the ability to draw upon Wipfli’s vast resources as needed,” says Joseph Eve, MP of JOSEPH EVE. “Joining with Wipfli not only expands our footprint, but it allows us to provide even more robust technical specialization for our gaming enterprise clients, which in turn allows us to meet the ever-changing challenges facing the gaming industry.”

The combined firm will have approximately 1,900 associates and 47 office locations across the U.S.
