About Moss Adams LLP

It has 28 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 approximately 2,300 personnel, including nearly 270 partners. It booked approximately $477 million in revenues 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 more than 100 independent accounting and auditing companies with a total of more than 35,000 professionals spread across more than 102 countries and territories.
