TIAG Expands into Western Territory with Addition of GALLINA

GALLINA LLP, a U.S. Top 100 accounting firm, has joined the international alliance of accounting firms, The International Accounting Group. GALLINA employs more than 200 team members in multiple offices throughout the Western United States in California, Nevada and Washington. The firm will also have access to TIAG’s sister alliance of independent law firms, TAGLaw.

“Joining TIAG gives our firm a significant resource to effectively meet the growing international needs of our clients,” said Larry Taylor, Managing Partner of GALLINA LLP. “Building strategic, global relationships with our accounting peers in TIAG and lawyers from an ‘Elite’ legal alliance is an exciting opportunity for our firm.”

TIAG partnered with industry consultant, Allan D. Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting, to assist with its strategy to expand its North American footprint. Koltin advised both GALLINA and TIAG on this strategic move. GALLINA is the fourth top ranked North American firm to join the TAG Alliances in two months.

“TIAG gives its members a significant advantage by providing access to both high quality accounting and law firms,” said Koltin, one of CPA Practice Advisor’s 2013 Thought Leaders. “GALLINA’s membership in TIAG will prove invaluable in servicing the firm’s clients and growing their practice for years to come.”

“GALLINA provides our TIAG and TAGLaw members with a strong resource in Northern California,” said Robert Sattin, President of the TAG Alliances. “They have contributed to our North American expansion strategy, and we look forward to being a part of their continued growth.”
