The CLA Promise

Our interactions with you are designed to support your goals and dreams and impact your success.

CLA is one of very few firms of our size and scope to focus on privately held businesses and their owners, public sector organizations, and individuals. We are a professional services firm with three integrated business lines — wealth advisory, outsourcing, and public accounting (audit, tax, and consulting). This allows us to serve clients more completely and offer our people diverse career opportunities.

You can depend on CLA for several uncommon advantages:

  • Deep industry insight.
    Our people are industry practitioners first and foremost. You will work with professionals who know you, your organization, and your industry — and combine their knowledge with yours to make you stronger.
  • Seamless, integrated capabilities.
    We offer planning and guidance from startup through succession, with particular care for you and your organization’s leaders. Our people connect with a vast network of resources behind the scenes — seamlessly presented and delivered for you.
  • Premier resource for private businesses and owners.
    Entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy. We place you — personally — at the core of our strategic focus because enabling your success means a better world for all of us.
  • Professionals personally invested in your success.
    You will work with entrepreneurial people with the freedom and agility to serve you rather than merely perform obligatory functions.
