Windes and Allen Haight & Monaghan Announce Merger

Long Beach, Calif.-based Windes and Allen Haight & Monaghan (AH&M) of Irvine, Calif., have announced that they have merged. The combined firms will practice as Windes.

AH&M, in business for more than 32 years, offers a range of services: from audit and assurance, tax, accounting and consulting services to closely held and middle-market businesses and their owners, very similar to Windes. The combined firm is comprised of more than 165 people with offices in Irvine, Long Beach and Los Angeles.

“We have successfully grown our Orange County practice, and we now have an opportunity to further improve our competitive position, to offer new options for younger employees to develop and improve their careers, and to increase the breadth of technical resources by expanding our practice,” says John Di Carlo, MP of Windes. “Our goal has been to combine with firms that have built quality practices – a solid client base, a great staff, a well-managed organization, high-quality work, and a culture based upon strong values. AH&M meets this goal,” Di Carlo adds.

“We are proud of the firm and the relationships that we have created, along with the service we have provided our clients over these past 32 years,” says R. Lee Haight, AH&M’s MP. “AH&M clients will continue to receive excellent client care from the same great team and, furthermore, will have access to enhanced resources along with a new array of services. Windes has a similar practice, but on a larger scale with additional expertise in cost segregation, employee benefit services, human resources consulting and merger/acquisition assistance.”
