Yale University and Fiondella Milone and LaSaracina Form Corporate Partnership

Glastonbury, Conn.-based Fiondella Milone and LaSaracina (FY18 net revenue of $9 million) and the Yale Office of Cooperative Research have partnered to help Yale startup companies.

The Office of Cooperative Research aims to turn Yale research into commercial opportunities and collaborates with outside firms to help new ventures with legal, accounting or marketing services.

FML professionals have agreed to serve as expert consultants to Yale innovators, and founding partners Frank Milone and Lisa (LaSaracina) Willauer have been named Yale Entrepreneurs-in-Residence.

“Partnering with Yale OCR is the perfect extension of our expertise,” Milone says. “We’re excited to be able to help bolster the success of innovative spinouts through our mastery of the nitty-gritty of assurance and tax regulations and requirements – essentials for every growing business, but not the specialty of those doing the innovating. We want to fill that gap so more Connecticut-grown startups fully realize their potential. The opportunity to support one of the world’s premier institutions in developing these companies cannot be overstated.”

FML support includes tax and accounting help, business structure and formation, understanding of federal and state grant accounting and reporting, financial statement assurance, and capital market consulting and advisory services. Additionally, FML brings a full suite of business tax preparation services and can advise companies in the medical and biotech fields, software as a service (SaaS) and digital heath.

In addition to Glastonbury, FML has offices in Enfield, New Haven, Stamford, Simsbury and Stafford Springs, Conn. The firm has 13 partners, 37 CPAs and a total staff of 84 professionals.
