UHY Advisors Returns to Connecticut Market

UHY Advisors and UHY LLP (“UHY”) have added to their portfolio in the Northeast with the acquisition of the professional services firm Pratesi, Salemi & Company LLC and the valuation firm Brentmore Valuation Advisors, located in West Hartford, Connecticut. Both firms will operate under the UHY banner effective immediately.

The acquisitions mark a return to Connecticut for one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing accounting firms, which last maintained a practice in Hartford in 2010. The new practice will enhance and complement UHY’s current service offerings of tax planning and consulting services, and business valuation.

“We are pleased to welcome the skilled teams at Pratesi, Salemi & Company and Brentmore Valuation Advisors to the UHY network as we re-enter the Connecticut market. Their addition is an opportunity for us to take advantage of the organic growth opportunities available to us in the Northeast while bringing UHY’s signature brand of service to businesses and organizations in the Greater Hartford area,” said Anthony P. Frabotta, chairman and chief executive officer, UHY Advisors, Inc. “We look forward to continuing to provide clients with the highest quality of service in our role as their most trusted advisor.”

All 10 associates of Pratesi, Salemi & Company LLC and Brentmore Valuation Advisors are expected to continue in their roles. The firm’s office will remain at 18 North Main Street in West Hartford.

“We are excited to bring our ‘next level of service’ to clients in Connecticut and to supplement our expertise in tax, consulting and business valuation with the talent and skill that resides among these two highly acclaimed firms,” said Michael Mahoney, UHY Advisors Northeast Regional Leader. “With a history spanning more than 50 years, we are proud to have forged meaningful relationships with clients across the Northeast, and look forward to expanding similar partnerships with businesses across the Greater Hartford region.”

UHY Advisors together with UHY LLP was recently recognized by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) as one of the top 10 fastest growing accounting firms of 2016.
