The Little Rock office of Thomas & Thomas, LLP and Beall Barclay & Company, PLC have announced plans to merge their practices in 2018. This combination provides broader resources to their clients and expands their reach throughout Arkansas.
“We are honored to join forces with one of Arkansas’ most well-respected firms,” said Thomas & Thomas Managing Partner Randy Milligan. “This combination of talent and expertise will provide all of our clients with more of what they have come to expect from both firms – ideas, insights and exceptional service. For 65 years, the team of professionals at Thomas & Thomas have been building a quality-driven practice with a focus on providing excellent client service. We are excited to merge with Beall Barclay, and we know the combination will benefit both our clients and our people.”
“Both Beall Barclay and Thomas & Thomas have rich histories rooted in Arkansas beginning over 50 years ago,” added Beall Barclay Managing Member Barbara Hambrick. “Our firms share similar cultures focused on our clients and our staff, and we anticipate this merger will strengthen our relationships with both. We share the same mission of providing quality services to our clients, and our combined resources will help both our clients and our firm grow. We are eager to join forces with Thomas & Thomas.”
Subsequent to the merger, the resulting firm will have a member group of 16, 58 CPAs and 37 professionals, and is expected to be one of the largest locally-owned CPA firms in Arkansas. The firm provides a full range of assurance, advisory, accounting and tax services to a diverse client base.
Milligan and Hambrick further noted, “The decision to join these practices together was made with diligent planning and consideration. Both firms take pride in the quality of our teams, business advice and client service. We share common values and a unified vision. This merger is a great fit for everyone.”
