Hughes Pittman & Gupton combines with EisnerAmper

EisnerAmper, the accounting and advisory firm with a heavy presence in New Jersey, on Thursday announced that the partners and colleagues of accounting, tax and business consulting firm Hughes Pittman & Gupton LLP are joining EisnerAmper in a transaction expected to close in the spring of 2024.

In a separate transaction, HPG’s wealth management practice, HPG Wealthcare Advisors, will transition to Prosperity, an EisnerAmper company, later in 2024.

Founded in 1983 and based in Raleigh, North Carolina, HPG has more than a dozen partners and a staff of almost 100. The firm provides a host of services, including advisory, outsourcing, audit and accounting, tax, and risk and governance. They serve clients around the world across a broad range of industries including technology, life sciences, clean tech, health care, manufacturing and distribution, real estate and professional services.

“HPG has always been dedicated to meeting the current and future needs of both clients and the talented professionals that make up our firm,” Heather Dean, tax partner and executive committee member at HPG, said. “In getting to know EisnerAmper, it became apparent that our values align perfectly, and combining our two cultures will provide terrific new opportunities for both our team and the clients they serve.”

“This strategic combination with HPG in the rapidly growing Research Triangle area reinforces our strong geographic presence in key markets throughout the eastern United States,” Jay Weinstein, EisnerAmper’s vice chair of industries and markets, said. “We welcome the opportunity to partner with a firm of HPG’s extremely high caliber to be the trusted, top-of-mind business adviser to clients in North Carolina and beyond. We’re very excited about our nascent relationship with HPG, and we welcome them to the EisnerAmper family.”
