1991

On July 15, 1991, Chris F. Collis and G. Brint Ryan launch Collis & Ryan, P.C., the predecessor to Ryan & Company, after leaving Big Six accounting firm Coopers & Lybrand. The Firm is founded as a CPA firm and will operate as a CPA firm until 1998.

The Firm is founded to provide tax audit defense and recovery services for clients seeking assistance with state & local tax audits on a turnkey basis. Located in Dallas, Texas, the first office consists of 900 square feet of leased office space in a two-story office park. The Principals rely on credit card accounts to fund the start-up of the Firm.

At this early date, the Firm establishes its hallmark of capitalizing on state & local tax litigation by aggressively pursuing Texas franchise tax refunds created by the Texas Supreme Court’s decision in House of Lloyd v. Bullock.

The Firm ends 1991 with 5 employees, including December hire and future Principal Gerry L. Ridgely, Jr., and $156,000 in annual revenue.
