Florida Construction Specialists Join CLA

Construction industry specialist firm Forehand & Associates of Orlando, Fla., has joined CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA) (FY18 net revenue of $954.6 million).

“Joining the team at CLA allows us to continue to provide our construction clients with the same quality service we have provided for the past 26 years,” says Whit Forehand, MP of Forehand & Associates. “It also allows us to offer CLA’s deep experience in wealth advisory and outsourcing to our construction clients, and a wide range of quality audit, tax and consulting services to industries not currently served by Forehand & Associates.”

Forehand & Associates has focused exclusively on the construction industry and related enterprises since 1993, providing financial statements, income tax strategy, merger and acquisition consultation, litigation support and general business advice.

“This year, CLA was recognized as the No. 1 ranked construction accounting firm in the United States by Construction Executive,” says Les Eiserman, managing principal of CLA Orlando. “Welcoming Whit and his team deepens and reinforces our commitment to creating opportunities for our clients in the construction industry.”

Forehand says that for clients, the transition should be seamless. The seven former Forehand & Associates team members will continue to serve clients locally and nationally from Orlando, alongside CLA’s Florida team of nearly 300 professionals.
