Who We Are
Maintaining double-digit annual growth in a challenging economy when many New England accounting and tax firms are realizing lower, single-digit growth rates is an achievement that BlumShapiro is proud to have earned. Our commitment to value people, relationships and professional integrity is what distinguishes us inside and outside our firm.
Formed in 1980 with the merger of Hartford’s Blum, Gavens & Kaplan and Shapiro, Rosenthal & Company, P.C., the firm has a rich Hartford legacy. We maintain a philanthropic culture and civic commitment to the Greater Hartford region, even as the firm has grown beyond those borders into southern Connecticut’s Fairfield County, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
With a staff of over 500 working from our primary offices in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, BlumShapiro has grown to become the largest regional accounting, tax and business consulting firm based in New England. BlumShapiro serves as business advisors for today’s leading companies, non-profit organizations and government entities.
Actively involved in our community, we are a major supporter of the United Way and the Greater Hartford Arts Council, contributing nearly $75,000 to each over the last two years alone. We also support Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross and countless local and national civic and human services-related charities. Annually, the BlumShapiro Foundation donates more than $100,000 to support non-profit organizations in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
