Baker Tilly’s acquisition of ACG will further expand its corporate tax services capability in Silicon Valley. The deal builds on Baker Tilly’s recent purchase of True Partners Consulting, a tax consultancy with over 200 people across nine offices coast-to-coast.

With the two acquisitions, the mid-market accounting and consulting firm says it is now one of the largest providers of corporate tax services in the Bay Area market.

“The Bay Area is a business and technology hub on the West Coast and an international connection point where we want to continue to grow,” said Lynette Stolarzyk, Baker Tilly managing partner – Bay Area. “With ACG’s incredible talent on board, we look forward to what we can do next for our clients.”

Alan Chinn, CEO of ACG, added, “Joining forces with Baker Tilly catapults our ability to provide new and innovative ways to tackle our clients’ most pressing challenges on a national and international scale.”

Baker Tilly also this month announced the acquisition of Henry+Horne – a move that expanded its physical presence into Arizona.
