Marlton Accounting Firm Merges with Metter & Co. to Expand Presence in Southeastern Pennsylvania
Baratz & Associates PA, a leading regional accounting and consulting firm based in Marlton, announced Monday that its group of partners had merged with Metter & Co. of Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. This full-service accounting firm will complement the services of Baratz & Associates while expanding its presence in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
“With a successful merger last November, we are excited to continue our growth plan and add (founder) Stan (Metter) and his team to our base in Pennsylvania,” said Managing Partner Raymond Giunta. “We share similar cultures and commitment to our customers. Our synergies in business consulting and tax planning will allow us to further improve our customer experience.
Baratz & Associates employs nearly 60 people and has developed a well-established reputation for distinction in accounting, auditing, business acquisition, healthcare consulting, litigation support, tax planning and valuation.
Metter & Co.’s focus on tax planning and business advice aligns with Baratz & Associates’ comprehensive services to individuals and business owners in the region. After the merger, the firm’s accountants and staff will be located at the Baratz & Associates site in Fort Washington, doubling the staff in that office.
With a third location in Bridgewater, which was just added in October, the firm continues to be successful despite the pandemic.
Michael Lehner joined Baratz & Associates as Director of Judicial, Litigation and Valuation Services. An expert with a long history in North Jersey, Lehner will work primarily at the Bridgewater site, while also expanding his reach into the Delaware Valley.
