(Gurnee) – Eder, Casella & Co., Certified Public Accountants, announces the merger of Milburn Cain & Co. with Eder, Casella & Co. as of July 1, 2017. The combined firm will conduct its practice as Eder, Casella & Co. Eder, Casella & Co. began its professional practice in 1989. “Our growth over that time has been largely internal, stemming from the referrals of our client base and those of other professionals who know and trust our work. We intend to bring these same qualities to the Gurnee area through this merger,” said Shelly Casella-Dercole, Managing Partner of Eder, Casella & Co. “Both firms are extremely proud of the quality of their professional staff, their work product, their advice and counseling, and their service. Eder, Casella & Co. exceeded our hopes for a firm we could combine with and continue the tradition we have for excellent service, deep expertise, and an environment our clients and associates want to be a part of,” said David Cain, Managing Partner of Milburn Cain & Co. The combined offices currently have 39 employees. In addition, all three locations (Gurnee, McHenry and Barrington) will remain open to best serve the clients.

The services that will be offered by the newly combined firm include, but are not limited to, tax planning and preparation services, accounting/bookkeeping services, audits, reviews, compilations, payroll and accounts payable services, consulting services, and governmental and not for profit services.
