Lawrence began his career as a utilities analyst more than 25 years ago, transitioning to public accounting in 1992. Lawrence lives by the philosophy that accountants are storytellers—accountants tell the story of where an individual, family or business has been. However, as trusted advisers, they are also uniquely positioned to tell the story of where that individual, family or business will go.
Lawrence works with professional service companies, trade associations, construction companies, retail stores, manufacturers, real estate companies, restaurant/caterers and individuals to assist with accounting and tax compliance and planning issues, and to provide proactive advice on a consulting basis. Additionally, Lawrence is able to assist clients with valuation issues such as: buy/sell agreements, merges and acquisitions, and exit planning to name just a few Over the years, he has written policy and procedures manuals, developed databases and modeling spreadsheets, and assisted clients with life and business transitions. Lawrence was a sole proprietor for five years, which gives him a unique perspective of the issues facing today’s business owners.
