Because we are a certified public accounting firm, we pair the ethics, structure, quality control and business discipline of a CPA firm with the skills and knowledge of a municipal financial advisor.

Our solutions

Solving problems, creating opportunities and meeting our clients’ accounting, capital planning and public finance needs are the hallmarks of the services we provide.

We specialize in advising governments, including cities, towns, villages, counties, authorities, utilities, public schools and libraries, as well as higher education, healthcare entities, power and water districts and economic development organizations.

Quality control, oversight and record retention are now all required by SEC regulations. However, these have long been integrated into our teams’ operations.

We’re here to lend helpful insights, advice and provide practical yet effective solutions for our clients.

Services include:

  • Public finance
  • Bond issuance/post issuance
  • Refunding
  • Investments
  • Financial management services
  • Accounting services
  • Housing and economic development
  • Attestation
  • User fees
  • Arbitrage/rebate regulatory compliance
  • Asset management

Environmental, social and governance (ESG)

ESG offers transparency around the sustainability of an organization, which in turn adds another layer to the evaluation of investment opportunities. Whether you’re looking to expand on existing ESG efforts or if you’re just getting started, we’ll meet you where you are.
