MGO merges in Long Island accounting firm


Macias Gini and O’Connell, a Los Angeles-based accounting firm, has merged in Nussbaum, Berg, Klein & Wolpow, an accounting firm with offices in Melville and Manhattan.

MGO, which has a national and international presence, will add Nussbaum’s 73 team members, including its 11 partners, to its roster.

Serving middle market businesses and high-net-worth individuals on the East Coast, Nussbaum provides accounting, auditing, tax, and business advisory services for closely held entrepreneurial businesses and public companies. Clients include Fortune 500 companies, national corporations, local businesses and family-owned businesses.

“Nussbaum has a rich history in New York and is known for its deep commitment to client service. We’re thrilled to bring their team into the MGO fold,” Kevin O’Connell, CEO and managing partner at MGO, said in a statement.

“The East Coast’s concentration of wealth and emerging cannabis markets give us an opportunity to continue building value and establishing best practices through our private client services group, cannabis practice, and other industry initiatives,” O’Connell added.

Nussbaum’s Steven Wolpow will serve as office managing partner on Long Island, where the office will operate as MGO.

“This is a unique opportunity to enhance the services and client experience NUSSBAUM is known for by leveraging MGO’s size and international footprint,” Wolpow said in a statement. “This is a momentous step for both our clients and our professionals, and we are excited about the future as part of MGO.”

Joe Tarasco, CEO of Accountants Advisory Group, advised both firms on the transaction.

“This deal makes MGO a major player in Long Island, New York, with its second combination in the area,” Tarasco said in a statement.

He said MGO is continuing to expand on the East Coast.
