EisnerAmper, the accounting and advisory firm with a heavy presence in New Jersey, on Thursday announced it is combining with the directors and colleagues of Louisiana-based firm Postlethwaite & Netterville in a transaction anticipated to close by the summer of 2023.
Founded in 1949, P&N has more than 575 team members across the U.S. and nine offices in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi.
The pairing of these Top 100 accounting firms will bring together two well-established organizations that are fully aligned in their core values, quality client service and integrity, with a combined number of 4,000-plus accounting professionals.
“P&N’s longstanding reputation for excellence in the Gulf Coast and beyond precedes itself. With this one strategic move, we’re adding more than 575 top-talent professionals and further extending deep industry experience in all aspects of our assurance, tax, advisory and outsourcing practice areas — no small accomplishment,” said Christopher Loiacono, EisnerAmper’s vice chair of services. “We greatly look forward to our historic combination with P&N and the vast opportunities it will afford our clients and staff for years to come.”
This combination will have positive impacts for both firms by expanding EisnerAmper’s reach into the Gulf Coast region and providing a platform for P&N’s continued growth on a larger geographic scale. P&N clients will benefit from new and innovative services and the support of a global business advisory firm.
“We’re extremely proud to be joining EisnerAmper and to build upon the existing success of both firms. This is an unprecedented opportunity to provide our clients with even more innovative and competitive services and for P&N team members to benefit from additional resources and new opportunities for professional growth,” Dan Gardiner, P&N’s CEO and managing director, said. “By joining with EisnerAmper, P&N will continue to serve our clients across the Gulf South and U.S. with the added support, resources and partnership of a Top 20 firm with a global presence.”
