VDS has a long-standing reputation for careful attention to each client. VDS provides sophisticated tax services for family groups, domestic and international real estate investors and developers, as well as multi-national firms, which aligns well with LGA’s current client offerings.
“At Vasil Dowd Silveira, CPA’s we are very proud of our history. It represents both a storied past of high-quality tax work over almost nine decades”, said Paul E. Vasil whose father founded the firm. “We were seeking a firm to merge with that embraces the future and all that it holds and LGA was the best match for us”, remarked Derek Silveira, Partner at VDS.
“We’ve known the team at VDS for a long time and have always admired the way they serve their clients and treat their team; the two most important considerations for any merger, in my mind,” notes John Geraci, Managing Partner of LGA. “With VDS, it all feels right. A few months from now it will feel like we’ve always been together.”
This merger, and additional hiring to accommodate LGA’s organic growth, brings the firm’s employee count to 65 people. LGA has risen in the ranks of the Boston Business Journal’s Largest Accounting Firms in MA list each year, now sitting in the #27 slot, up from #45 in 2013.
