WithumSmith+Brown, the accounting and advisory firm with a major presence in New Jersey, is bolstering its Whippany office with the addition of Maffei, Masiello & Co. P.A., they announced this week.

On Nov. 1, the Mendham-based public accounting firm’s two partners and 13 team members will join the Withum roster as it joins its practice with the larger firm.

“We could not be more excited to join a firm that aligns so perfectly with our values,” Steve Maffei, managing partner of MM&Co., said in a prepared statement. “We are proud to serve a diverse clientele with the highest-quality services and continuity of personalization of a small firm. Withum is likewise committed to being a catalyst for clients to achieve exponential growth and success, with an added depth and considerable resources that will augment our already-existing services.

“This union is the next phase in our story, and we are glad to continue helping our clients reach new levels of success.”

The agreement will boost Withum’s expertise in accounting and audit services, tax and estate planning, management advisory services, mergers & acquisitions consulting and more, it said.
