Briggs & Veselka Expands into Austin

Houston-based Briggs & Veselka (FY16 net revenue of $35.4 million) acquired William C. Love CPAs of Austin, Texas.

Bill Love provides forensic accounting analysis and testimony for litigation matters primarily related to family law, as well as individual and corporate tax planning and compliance services.

“Bill’s 40-year career that spans from leading a Big 4 office in Austin to his experience in operating his own firm will be a great asset to our firm. And his insights into forensic accounting will be a boon to our own growing forensic accounting practice,” says John Flatowicz, managing shareholder of Briggs & Veselka.

“Above all else, joining forces is a great cultural fit,” says Love. “Mergers are only successful when the companies can first come together on shared values, and we’ve found that to be the case with the Briggs & Veselka team during the past several months.”
