About Moss Adams LLP

Seattle-based Moss Adams is one of the nation's 15 largest accounting firms by revenue. It has 25 offices, located primarily in the western United States, and its clients include public, private, and not-for-profit enterprises. The firm operates through three main service lines (assurance, consulting, and tax) and serves industries including apparel, communications and media, construction, automotive, financial services, agribusiness, forest products, wine, health care, life sciences, manufacturing and consumer products, not-for-profit, government, real estate, hospitality, restaurants, technology, tribal and gaming, and utilities. It also offers services to private clients and high net worth individuals, providing investment banking and asset management services through two affiliate companies: Moss Adams Capital LLC and Moss Adams Wealth Advisors LLC. 

The firm's history dates back to 1913, when Seattle accountant John G. McIntosh opened a small firm that provided services to the region's lumber industry. Six years later, McIntosh partnered with Albert Moss and Edwin Adams. Moss Adams, as the firm became known, spread beyond the Pacific Northwest-Washington and Oregon-in the 1960s, when it opened several offices in California. It later expanded to Arizona, New Mexico, Kansas, and, most recently, Texas. 

The largest accounting and consulting firm headquartered in the West, Moss Adams has more than 2,900 personnel, including more than 280 partners. It booked approximately $527 million in revenue in its latest fiscal year. It is led by Chris Schmidt, its chairman and CEO. Moss Adams is a founding member of Praxity, aisbl, a global alliance of independent accounting and auditing companies with a combined total of more than 40,000 professionals spread across more than 100 countries and territories.
