Houlihan, LLP's origins date back to 1952 when James J. Houlihan Sr. returned to his hometown of Fort Wayne after several years on the audit staff with Price Waterhouse (now PriceWaterhouse Coopers) in Chicago. Starting with a mere one client, he built a firm through steady growth and remained independent until his retirement and sale of the firm in 1989 to two of his sons, James Jr., and Patrick who joined the firm after years working in the Atlanta offices of Arthur Andersen and Price Waterhouse, respectively.
In over sixty years of practice, the firm has grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of our small business clients. However, one thing has remained constant: Our dedication to our clients and our work. We still maintain the same focus as being the business advisor of choice for the small business and individuals we serve throughout this region.
