Simply put, Tom is the guy to call. We are fortunate to have Tom in our corner supporting the integrity of the profession and the MNCPA’s efforts.”

Tom has served as Moss & Barnett's Chief Executive Officer since 2000 and chairs Moss & Barnett’s nationally acclaimed accountant law team. He represents several national, super-regional, and regional accounting firms, national corporations, businesses in the Midwest, and professionals. Tom defends CPA firms of all sizes on malpractice claims in federal and state courts throughout the United States, while also advising them on loss prevention, risk management, mergers and acquisitions, partnership and operating agreements, and employment matters. He has twice been selected as a Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” in Minneapolis for Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants, and has repeatedly been listed in Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers.
