Established in 1946, LaPorte is one of the largest independent accounting and business consulting firms in the region, with over 160 personnel in New Orleans, Houston, Baton Rouge, Covington and Houma.
Serving the financial services industry has long been a focus of our firm. This commitment has translated into a significant client base and recognition as a leader in serving community-based financial institutions, broker-dealers, investment companies, and insurance providers. While many firms have industry concentrations, LaPorte’s financial services group comprises 14 multi-disciplinary professionals who meet monthly to cross-train, identify best practices, review industry trends, and work together to reach collective solutions for our clients. In addition, our affiliation with the RSM US Alliance provides immediate access to other professionals serving financial institutions across the nation.
Our clients benefit from our local experience as well as from the boundless resources available to us. A few of our services include financial statement audits, internal audits, internal control evaluations, benefit plan audits, deferred compensation plans, tax consulting and return preparation, cost segregation studies, multistate issues, SSAE 16 (SOC 1) reports, and IT risk and controls assessments.
