Founded in 2009 by a husband-and-wife team who exited Big 4 accounting, Lanphier LLP specializes in the small-to-mid-sized company sector. The opportunity was to work with the many exciting and dynamic companies in this space, businesses that were often underserved in their current accounting firm relationships.

In 2016, the team attended an industry conference. Among the takeaways was an emphasis on a different approach to running a firm that focused on tax planning and advisory services, rather than tax preparation and bookkeeping. The firm shifted its focus to advanced tax advisory and planning services. “This has allowed us to serve clients at a higher level, take on broader and more profitable relationships, fund growth, retain staff, and surmount most of the challenges faced by our peers in the industry,” said Brittany Lanphier, CPA and managing partner.

The firm has been an early tech adopter with multiple software programs, and has always looked for ways to automate and improve the efficiency of processes. Its embrace of technology, and its focus on higher level advisory services and fewer clients, has helped Lanphier LLP recruit talent. “We have flexible schedule options for our staff,” Lanphier said. “When overtime hours are necessary, it can always be done from home on the employees’ schedules.”
