The firm provides tax, accounting, business consulting and financial planning services. This includes developing tax minimisation strategies, asset protection plans and investment strategies that build a solid financial foundation.
"We are very excited about this merger," said Edward M. Polansky, CPA/PFS, Weaver's San Antonio executive partner. "Expanding our presence in San Antonio allows our firm to offer more services to our clients who base their business or have offices in this area. Merging with Edelman Arnold supports the growth of our tax and audit practices, as well as our wealth advisory practice."
Edelman will join Weaver as a senior managing director, Arnold as a partner and Karen Vescio as a senior manager. All of the firm's employees, including six certified public accountants join as well. The combined firm will use the Weaver name.
