Evelyn Partners and the US accountancy firm, CliftonLarsonAllen LLP, have announced today the launch of their new multinational organisation, CLA Global.
CLA Global is said to be “significant to the broader industry” by filling a gap among top global professional services with its keen focus on fast-growing, innovative, and dynamic middle-market cross-border businesses, while also concentrating on assisting international public interest and listed entities.
In addition, the two firms are joint founders and reportedly provide services to more than 10,000 international clients operating in more than 100 countries through CLA Global’s network. This size and reach is expected to elevate CLA Global as a top 15 global accounting and advisory organisation.
CLA Global expects to announce additional high-profile counterparts and member firms later in 2022.
Jen Leary, CEO of CliftonLarsonAllen, said: “This is the next generation of growth for us. We saw an opportunity to collaborate and build a global organisation different from any other in our world today.
“We are fundamentally investing in our people, giving them opportunities on a grander scale. What we are creating is exciting for our clients and our team.”
Andrew Wilkes, incoming chief professional services director at Evelyn Partners, added: “There are many synergies between CliftonLarsonAllen and Evelyn Partners. Both of our firms are energised by working with private clients and their business interests and invest a lot in creating opportunities to grow our clients and our people.”
