For immediate release
November 8, 2011 – Calgary, AB –Montreal-based accounting and consulting firm Horwath Leebosh Appel LLP, including their insolvency and corporate recovery practice, Appel & Co. Inc., will merge with MNP, effective January 1, 2012. Focused on the mid-market, both firms were
looking for an opportunity to add resources to better serve their clients and the Montreal and region marketplace.
MNP first entered the Montreal marketplace in early 2011, when it merged with WSBG LLP. Over the last year, MNP has merged with a number of Montreal-based partners and firms. This latest merger brings almost 80 more team members to MNP.
“This is a very exciting merger for us,” said Daryl Ritchie, CEO, MNP. “Horwath Leebosh Appel is a large Montreal-based firm with a committed team of professionals who, like us, are focused on the mid-market. Together, we are committed to delivering enhanced services and more resources
to the Montreal marketplace.”
For more than 40 years, Horwath Leebosh Appel has provided value-added professional services to a diverse and entrepreneurial client base in Montreal and surrounding areas. Like MNP, HLA offers the full spectrum of accounting, tax and business consulting services needed by mid-market private and publicly traded companies, not-for-profit and community organizations, owners, and management.
Operating from 27 locations, Horwath Leebosh Appel’s insolvency and corporate recovery practice, Appel & Co Inc., has a team of experienced bankruptcy trustees and financial consultants who have successfully handled over 10,000 cases of personal and corporate bankruptcy and proposals in Montreal and many regions of Quebec.
“As a growing firm, we were looking to join a firm that would complement our current service offerings and that had similar experience providing an expanded national and global reach to clients,” said Gordon Leebosh, Partner, Horwath Leebosh Appel.
Horwath Leebosh Appel Partner, Michael Doig, said he was impressed with MNP’s large national presence and access to hundreds of MNP experts and specialists, as well as access to a global network of accounting firms and affiliations through Praxity—an international alliance of
independent accounting firms. “By joining MNP, we are adding more resources and experience to better serve the needs of our clients,” added Doig.
Louis Grossbaum, MNP’s Regional Managing Partner in Montreal, said the Horwath Leebosh Appel team is a welcome addition to the MNP family. “This is an exceptional firm, with an experienced and diverse team of professionals. Since merging our firm (WSBG) with MNP several months ago, we have continued to grow and we were looking for more people and resources to better meet the needs of our clients. We couldn’t have found a better fit.”
MNP has established itself as one of the top national firms in Canada; the result of a combination of strong strategic mergers, organic growth and the firm’s philosophy of building lasting relationships with clients.
“Bringing in like-minded firms in Montreal has helped us realize our vision from growing from a regional firm to a national firm,” added Ritchie. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have the Horwath Leebosh Appel team join MNP.”
The Horwath Leebosh Appel team will remain in their current location at 1 Westmount Sq., Suite 1001 in Montreal for the present time but will move into MNP’s new Montreal office in the spring.
