March 15, 2016

Firm offers business services to help agents, underwriters and lenders grow revenue and manage risk

March 15, 2016- HA&W, LLP, a nationally-recognized tax, accounting and business consulting firm, announced today that it has launched a dedicated title industry services group to address the business needs of industry participants. Drawing on team members with over 20 years of title industry experience, the group tailors existing HA&W services and subject matter expertise for use by organizations to address their business requirements.

HA&W’s title industry offerings provide practical solutions for agents, underwriters and lenders to profitably grow their businesses by managing risk and enhancing business operations. The firm’s title industry services include enterprise risk management programs, forensic investigations, internal audits, cyber security planning, vendor management, business valuations, merger & acquisition due diligence, succession planning and wealth management, as well as traditional tax and accounting services.

HA&W began serving the real estate industry in 1952. With the birth of ALTA Best Practices in 2013, HA&W pioneered how independent, third-party testing and reporting is performed through its ComplianceSuccess® Program. Today, HA&W works with over 400 title agents across the country to provide them with the compliance testing and reporting services their businesses need to meet their internal risk management needs, as well as lender requirements.

As HA&W developed relationships with organizations in the title industry, the firm recognized the need for more comprehensive business solutions beyond compliance with ALTA Best Practices.

Clients have engaged HA&W to:

  • Perform forensic investigations to identify and contain fraud within their organizations;
  • Guide them with strategic advice and tactical actions to minimize their company tax liability, while staying in compliance;
  • Complete due diligence on multi-state title agency mergers; and
  • Measure profitability and overall financial performance by leveraging HA&W’s CEO Tools, which identify business areas that are being done well and those that need improvement.

“Over the last several years, HA&W has become deeply rooted in the title industry. During that time, our clients have communicated similar business needs that HA&W’s industry expertise can address,” said Lee Fields, managing director of Business Consulting Services at HA&W. “The services we are offering to the title industry are the same services that HA&W has offered to businesses across the country for more than 60 years, but they have been customized to meet the unique business needs of the organizations in the title industry.”
