RubinBrown entered the Las Vegas market in 2017 when it combined with Stewart Archibald & Barney (SAB). Steven J. Brown, CPA
, partner and chairman of the firm’s Tax Services Group, was instrumental in RubinBrown’s entrance into the Las Vegas market after years of working alongside SAB partners to advocate for the accounting profession at the American Institute of CPAs. “Our firm’s values were closely aligned and since the combination the firm has grown substantially, particularly in the gaming sector,” he said.
RubinBrown is well known throughout the gaming industry in part because of its popular RubinBrown’s Gaming Stats

“Bradshaw Smith has served a diverse range of clients in the gaming industry since our inception and we are proud of our strong reputation for the specialized services we provide. We are thrilled to combine our resources and work together to serve the industry nationally at the highest level,” said Jeff Cooper and Jeff Pero, both gaming partners with Bradshaw Smith.
