DALLAS – INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) is pleased to present its fifth annual ranking of the IPA 200 public accounting firms. Lane Gorman Trubitt, PLLC (LGT) has made a substantial move up in rankings, from No. 182 to No. 175, an astounding 8.2 percent growth.

“With more than 540 firms participating in the IPA annual Survey and Analysis of Firms this year, along with many CPA firm associations contributing to the search to identify the IPA 200, this prestigious group joins the IPA 100 as the definitive ranking of the nation’s largest public accounting firms,” said Kelly Platt, principal of The Platt Group, the publisher of IPA.

For the most recent fiscal year, IPA 200 firms range in size from $14 million to $31 million, and from 60 to 235 staff members. These firms employ more than 12,000 staff across the nation, up 9 percent from last year.

“Similar to their IPA 100 peers, the IPA 200 are also engaged in acquisitions to grow in size, scope and capability, with 21 mergers reported for the group last year, pulling more than 200 staff and more than $22 million into the aggregate numbers of the group,” said Platt.

LGT is honored to be named in the 2014 IPA 200. Every employee has made a significant contribution to our recent growth and success.

“We are proud of the work we are doing and of what our work is doing for our clients,” said Scott Cote, director of Practice Growth at LGT. “I can’t wait to see where we will be next year.”
