Bell Nunnally Partner Larry L. Shosid and associates Vikram Kadiri, Khaki Scrivner and Joshua Smith led the firm deal team representing Dallas-based global tax services and software provider Ryan, LLC in its July acquisition of Dallas-based Paradigm Tax Group (PTG). PTG provides taxpayers with a full suite of services, including real and personal property tax appeals, pre-acquisition planning due diligence, complex property consulting and business personal property tax compliance.
With the acquisition, Ryan bolstered its property tax practice, adding Paradigm’s 175 professionals in 20 locations across the United States.
“Adding one of the largest pure-play property tax firms in the United States further cements Ryan as a leader in property tax management services across the country,” said Ryan Chairman and CEO G. Brint Ryan in a Ryan-issued press release. “Combining PTG’s specialized knowledge, national network, and innovative technology platform with our current service and software offerings benefits clients from both firms and ensures a seamless property tax management solution moving forward. This acquisition is consistent with Ryan’s strategy to hire and acquire the industry’s top professionals and positions us well as we continue our mission of becoming the number one global brand in tax.”
The Dallas Business Journal in covering the PTG acquisition reported, “Last year, Ryan closed six deals to break its then-record for M&A, but its purchase of Paradigm puts the firm at seven deals in 2022.” Notably, Shosid and Scrivner also served as Ryan’s deal team for the company’s February acquisition of Marvin F. Poer and Company, as well as a number of other property tax companies acquired by Ryan.
