LBMC is the largest professional service solutions provider based in Tennessee, serving nearly 10,000 clients with diverse needs across a spectrum of industries; however, we didn’t start that way. LBMC was founded in 1984 as a traditional accounting firm with a simple mission: to serve a great group of clients and enjoy doing it.

More Than An Accounting Firm

More than 30 years later, loving what we do and who we do it for has taken us a long way. LBMC has been named a top 50 firm in the country. We’ve become industry leaders in accounting and finance, human resources, technology, information security, and wealth advisory services backed by more than 500 employees – not because a business plan told us to be, but because we’re entrepreneurs and our clients asked us to be.

As illustrated by our “Best Places to Work” recognition, LBMC is committed to attracting and retaining the nation’s best talent, positioning ourselves to best serve clients with the industry’s brightest minds.

So, who is LBMC? Whether you need to supplement or outsource a single function, need an ally you can trust for your taxes, or are in the market for a comprehensive business solutions partner, LBMC is what your business needs.
