About Us

A Legacy of Loyalty

Our clients range from individual tax clients to closely-held businesses to medium-cap public companies, some of whom we have served for decades over multiple generations of ownership or leadership.

That tenure speaks to our ability to consistently deliver insights and value over time—part of our legacy.  Today, Briggs & Veselka serves some of Texas’ most iconic brands—many of which are market leaders in their respective areas.

Our clients tell us they have great confidence in our work, that we demonstrate an acute business sense beyond compliance issues, and that we are genuine and real in our interactions with each other and our clients. That’s how we engender a sense of loyalty.

The Backstory: Our Legacy of Loyalty Branding

The idea behind our branding approach is rooted in the firm’s values of Excellence, Dedication, and Compassion, and inspired by the WPA-era murals of John Rush found at the Hoover Dam. We believe this approach reinforces the concept of “Legacy of Loyalty” that was evident among American workers during and after the Great Depression, and continues with the entrepreneurs we serve today.
