MAWC Acquires Lawrence P. Lemieux & Associates;
New Firm Name is AO & Company
Shelton, CT, January 2, 2020 — The full-service accounting firm MAWC, LLC — with offices in Killingworth and Shelton — has announced the acquisition of Lawrence P. Lemieux & Associates, LLC, effective January 1, 2020. The combined firm is now doing business under the new name of AO & Company, LLC, and the firm’s new web address is www.aococpas.com
With an experienced and committed team of more than 20 accountants and consultants, AO & Company, LLC will offer a broad range of services ranging from tax planning and auditing to bookkeeping and business advisory services.
“We are excited to make this move, because we believe that a larger organization will allow us to strengthen our overall capabilities in serving our clients, particularly in the areas of audit, tax and business consultation, said John Accavallo, AO’s Managing Partner. “This also allows us to add more depth to our team. Finding and retaining excellent people is a constant challenge for most CPA firms, and a larger organization will also mean our associates will benefit from stronger career growth opportunities.”
All employees from both MAWC and Lemieux are being retained in their current roles, and some part-time employees will become full-time in the months ahead.
“We value the relationships we have built with our clients and we look forward to continuing to provide them with outstanding accounting services for many years to come,” added Mr. Accavallo.
