MGO Merges in New York Firm

Los Angeles-based MGO (FY21 net revenue of $98.1 million), an IPA 100 firm, has announced that it has merged in Nussbaum Berg Klein & Wolpow CPAs (NUSSBAUM), with offices in Melville, N.Y., and Manhattan. MGO will add the firm’s 73 team members, including all 11 partners.

Founded in 1990, NUSSBAUM serves middle market businesses and high-net-worth individuals on the East Coast, offering a full spectrum of accounting, auditing, tax and business advisory services for closely held entrepreneurial businesses and public companies.

“The East Coast’s concentration of wealth and emerging cannabis markets give us an opportunity to continue building value and establishing best practices through our private client services group, cannabis practice and other industry initiatives,” says Kevin O’Connell, CEO and MP of MGO.

Steve Wolpow, who joins MGO as the OMP in Melville, says, “This is a unique opportunity to enhance the services and client experience NUSSBAUM is known for by leveraging MGO’s size and international footprint. This is a momentous step for both our clients and our professionals, and we are excited about the future as part of MGO.” Former NUSSBAUM partners and team members will continue to operate from the Melville office.

Joe Tarasco, CEO of Accountants Advisory Group, who advised both firms on the transaction said, “This deal makes MGO a major player in Long Island, New York, with its second combination in the area. MGO is one of the fastest-growing CPA and advisory firms in the U.S., and the firm continues to expand on the East Coast to offer its deep industry expertise that has made MGO so successful.”
