About Us: HA&W exists to help clients build value by providing an unmatched quality of accounting services while being mindful of our responsibility to the public interest. We are dedicated to providing our staff a working environment that helps them to achieve their maximum potential.
Isaac Habif and Jimmy Arogeti started the Firm in 1952. Merrill Wynne joined the firm in 1962 and became a partner in 1970, and the firm name was changed to Habif, Arogeti & Wynne.
Since then, we have steadily expanded our services to meet the needs of our clients and HA&W has grown to be one of the 100 largest accounting firms in the country and the largest independent accounting firm in Georgia. While most of our clients are headquartered in the Southeast, we also serve a number of companies nationwide and internationally. With 48 partners and over 300 employees, HA&W continues to grow and expand services to meet the changing client needs. We have organized the firm into industry groups so our people know the particular regulations and special issues of the companies they advise. We have developed functional specialties in areas such as employee benefits, financial staffing, litigation consulting services, international tax, mergers & acquisitions consulting, asset management and many others, transforming our firm into a single source for all your financial needs.
In addition to traditional accounting and tax services, we also provide a wide array of financial solutions including management consulting, financial planning, technology consulting and financial staffing to clients in a variety of industries.
As a member of Baker Tilly International, we support our clients wherever they want to be.
