Tracy G. Sharkey

Dublin, Ga.-based TJS Deemer Dana LLP (FY17 net revenue of $14.4 million) has announced its most recent expansion through a merger with Lew Salmon and team members.

Salmon founded Salmon Barton & Associates of Atlanta in 2010. The team provides a full range of accounting, tax and advisory services, with a specialization in the insurance industry.

TJSDD operates from four offices in Georgia – Dublin, Savannah, Atlanta and Duluth. With the combination, effective Dec. 1, the firm will have 122 employees.

“This combination allows us to extend our geographic footprint within Atlanta and beyond and add a great group of talented people all committed to helping clients achieve success,” says MP Tracy G. Sharkey.

Salmon says, “We have a long history of strong relationships with entrepreneurial businesses and individuals in the Greater Atlanta community. TJS Deemer Dana LLP shares our philosophy of helping our clients grow and succeed, and the merger will broaden and deepen our existing industry specializations, enabling us to offer more comprehensive business advice tailored to our clients.”

Salmon and his team members will continue to serve clients from their current office in Atlanta. Assisting in the merger was Transition Advisors, a merger and acquisition consulting firm serving the national accounting community.
