LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3, 2016 – Miller Kaplan Arase LLP (“Miller Kaplan”) is pleased to announce that effective October 1, 2016, the tax and consulting experts at Damasco & Associates, have joined the Firm – further expanding  its reach through new locations and elite services. Miller Kaplan is one of the top 100 accounting firms in the U.S. according to Accounting Today.

The tax services offered by Miller Kaplan are strengthened through the inclusion of Damasco & Associates, with its years of experience helping closely held businesses, family groups and highly compensated individuals with tax compliance, planning and controversies. Damasco & Associates’ national expertise in solving tax issues raised by settlements, judgements, complex distributions, and funds of money established to resolve claims is second to none.

With the addition of Damasco & Associates, Miller Kaplan gains offices in Half Moon Bay, Calif. and Hailey, Idaho – expanding the Firm’s services further throughout the San Francisco Bay area and into the Sun Valley, Idaho community. The Firm will now have a more comprehensive network of offices serving the West Coast, the Pacific Northwest, and the Intermountain West.

“We are always looking for ways to better serve our clients,” said Doug Waite, managing partner at Miller Kaplan. “The additional locations and niche services that the experts at Damasco & Associates bring to our Firm enable us to function in more markets and continue to offer our clients an ever-broadening array of practice areas.”

As new partners at Miller Kaplan, Julia Mandeville Damasco, who holds a LLM in taxation in addition to a JD, and Jude Damasco, who has a master’s degree in taxation, will share their decades of experience and client service in the areas of tax, consulting and controversy services.

“Joining Miller Kaplan with its extensive resources and talented staff is a positive move for our clients and Firm,” said Mandeville Damasco. “Our new colleagues at Miller Kaplan will support and strengthen the client relationships we have built over the last 20 years.”

Miller Kaplan has been providing its clients with exceptional business advisory, accounting and tax services for 75 years. Its commitment to quality and experience with a wide range of services, including business management, licensing and royalty audits, media revenue measurement, and employee benefit plan reporting, among others, have helped make it one of the top accounting firms in U.S. The addition of Damasco & Associates will serve to further develop its position on the national stage.

“Like our colleagues at Miller Kaplan, we are dedicated to driving success and focusing on the continued satisfaction of our clients,” Mandeville Damasco added. “Excellence, integrity, and service will continue to be our key strategic priorities.”
