Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. (MHM) announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the attest practice of Berntson Porter, a leading accounting service provider based in Bellevue, WA, with a closing effective May 1, 2021.

Founded in 1985, Berntson Porter is a leading full-service accounting firm providing accounting, tax and consulting services to public and private businesses. With around 120 associates, they are ranked as one of the Top 200 accounting firms in the nation.

With this acquisition, clients receiving audit and attest services by Berntson Porter will now have them provided under the MHM name. The tax and consulting work will be performed by CBIZ, a national business service provider that has a strategic association with MHM. Working together, MHM and CBIZ are the 10th largest accounting service provider in the country. The strong credibility, longstanding relationships, and active community presence of Berntson Porter combined with the national resources and personal service of MHM creates a dynamic union and presence in the Pacific Northwest and across the West Coast of the United States.

Andy Burczyk, MHM President stated, "We are thrilled to have the Berntson Porter team join our growing attest practice. Their practice lines up well with some of our existing strengths, especially in key verticals such as the Construction industry and Employee Benefit Plan Audits. We look forward to serving the needs of their existing clients under the MHM name, and creating new relationships in the Seattle market. I am confident we will see continued growth in the Pacific Northwest under the local leadership or Mary Actor.”
