Gallina LLP, nationally recognized by Accounting Today and ranked among the top 10 firms in the Western United States, will join national professional services firm Clifton Larson Allen LLP (CLA), effective January 1, 2017.

“Our team is enthusiastic about combining practices with CLA. By joining CLA, we have an ability to better serve our clients by bringing them a greater depth of service offerings through more robust resources,” says Gallina Managing Partner Larry Taylor. He continues, “This will also provide exceptional growth and expanded career opportunities for our team members in tax, audit, and consulting.”

For nearly 45 years, Gallina has served organizations both large and small. Under the terms of the agreement, Gallina will assume the CLA name, and Larry Taylor, managing partner of Gallina, will actively serve on the CLA leadership team as chief practice officer. Gallina plans to continue its Sacramento region office move of its Rancho Cordova office, located at 2870 Gold Tailings Court, to Gallina’s Roseville office at 925 Highland Pointe Drive.

“I am confident the clients we serve will value the expanded seamless integrated capabilities our combined firms offer,” says Gallina Regional Managing Partner Teresa Arrighi, who will join CLA’s construction and real estate executive team.

As one of the nation’s leading professional services firms, CLA has retained the agility to serve clients of all sizes and locations, while at the same time bringing an unparalleled depth of capabilities, all in one place. We believe that industry specialization goes beyond having a concentration of clients in a given area. It means we build teams who understand the strategic, operational, and regulatory issues that affect the people in the industries we serve.

“Now as one professional services firm, our clients — contractors in particular — will experience a comprehensive and robust platform able to meet all of their needs,” says CLA in- coming Managing Principal of Construction and Real Estate Jill Bosco.

Gallina and CLA will double their expertise in the construction and real estate arena, and strengthen capabilities in agribusiness, manufacturing and distribution, and the many other industries that make up the private sector.

“CLA completely aligns with the long history of high valued service that Gallina has brought to its clients over its long history. Bringing the firms together will provide the additional services we did not previously offer internally,” says Gallina Executive Team Partner Reed Matthews.

Clients want to be confident that when they need help — personally or professionally, today or in the future — CLA will bring relevant capabilities. To answer that need, CLA builds its diverse team to deliver an ever-broadening spectrum of wealth advisory, outsourcing, and public accounting capabilities.
