Houston, TX (January 4, 2021) – Calvetti Ferguson, a Texas accounting and advisory firm, has acquired CPA firm Larkin, Ervin, and Shirley, LLP (“Larkin-Ervin”).

The deal expands Calvetti Ferguson’s expertise in serving both individuals and corporations with expatriate tax services. Based in the Woodlands, Texas, Larkin-Ervin has joined Calvetti Ferguson effective January 1, 2021. This transaction continues Calvetti Ferguson’s M&A strategy in Texas, expanding its headcount to 140 across Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

“With this acquisition, we are even more well equipped to address the complex tax needs of our clients with a full portfolio of services. As a full-service regional CPA and advisory firm, we are always looking for ways to better serve our clients,” stated Jason Ferguson, Managing Partner.

Patricia Snyder, Tax Director, added “Most Americans living and working abroad are completely unaware they still need to file a U.S. tax return, even if they are paying taxes in the new country. There are many tools that can be used to minimize or eliminate double taxation.”


James Larkin, now a Partner at Calvetti Ferguson, added, “I am pleased to join Calvetti Ferguson’s growing team and continue to advise on expatriate tax services. It was an easy choice to transition my clients to Calvetti Ferguson knowing they will continue to receive excellent client service and have access to a wider array of service offerings.”
