LINCOLN, NE (August 7, 2015) – HBE Becker Meyer Love LLP (HBE) and Gaines & Associates PC are pleased to announce the expansion of HBE in Norfolk, Nebraska, effective August 1, 2015. Serving as HBE Partner, Bill Gaines will continue to manage the HBE office in Norfolk and serve clients from the existing office location at 1314 Andrews Drive.


“HBE has enjoyed working with Bill Gaines in a professional capacity for many years. We’ve always admired his service philosophy and commitment to his clients,” said Scott Becker, HBE Managing Partner. “The combination of our two firms will allow Bill and his team to not only continue the close client relationships they’ve built, but further enrich those relationships through access to a deeper pool of resources and expertise.”


Bill Gaines founded Gaines & Associates PC in 1994. His vision for his practice was based on a service approach and values that mirror HBE’s—integrity, trust, open and honest communication, and a commitment to exceeding expectations.


“From the time I opened my practice, my focus has always been to serve as a trusted advisor and partner in my clients’ success,” stated Gaines. “In planning for the future of my practice, I recognized that HBE’s reputation for excellence combined with their values—which reflects a culture that is important to me, my staff, and my clients—made the firm an ideal partner for enhanced professional services. Although nothing will change for my clients except for the name on my door, I couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter to begin and for the expertise and diversity it will bring to the Norfolk area.”


This expansion is a significant milestone for HBE as it establishes the firm’s second office location and signifies the firm’s growth outside of the Lincoln community. While embracing this opportunity, HBE’s core values will ensure personalized, hands-on client service that will remain unchanged by size or location.
