CLA, based in Minneapolis, has been absorbing a series of other firms in the past year. The largest deal, merging in Gallina LLP, based in Roseville, Calif., also took effect with the New Year (see Gallina to join CliftonLarsonAllen). The latest deal will expand CLA’s footprint in the Pacific Northwest, where it already has a number of offices in Washington State. CLA will retain Mack Roberts’ current offices in Portland, Ore.

CLA ranked 9th on Accounting Today’s 2016 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $650 million in annual revenue, plus another $50 million from the Gallina merger.

Mack Roberts has partnered with CLA over the years, and the merger made sense for both firms.

“For several years, we have worked with CLA to offer our clients capabilities that complement our team’s services,” said Mack Roberts managing member Vaughn Schneider in a statement. “We’re excited to join CLA, extend the trust we’ve established, and continue to offer the personalized, proactive, hands-on approach our clients have come to expect.”
