  • Live the Succession Process

    Developing and cultivating the next generation of leaders and owners is a crucial part of any healthy CPA practice. While succession in CPA firms has received a lot of attention – even to the level of anxiety – for a very long time, not enough firms have figured it all out.

That percentage is far lower in smaller firms.

    Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the nuts and bolts administration of justice, there is a particularly troublesome backlog in the court system.
