FORVIS LLP is expanding to the United States’ northern neighbor for the first time.
The certified public accounting firm, which operates its Springfield office at 910 St. Louis St., now has a Canadian location in Toronto, Ontario, according to a news release issued this week. The office opening also resulted in the creation of a subsidiary called FORVIS Global Advisory Canada ULC, officials say.
"We’re eager to serve the advisory needs of our clients in Toronto and Canada,” FORVIS CEO Tom Watson said in the release. “This is yet another sign of our firm’s tremendous momentum and growth, and it’s especially exciting to see further international expansion."
Toronto is the third international office for FORVIS, following locations in London and the Cayman Islands. FORVIS' website lists 70 offices.
FORVIS ranked No. 8 last year on Inside Public Accounting's list of the top U.S. accounting firms. The company reported nearly $1.5 billion in revenue after the firm formerly known as BKD merged with North Carolina-based DHG, according to past reporting.
