Prior to joining Moore Colson, LaMontagne was an Audit Partner and leader of the Southeast Real Estate Practice with the international accounting firm of KPMG. He joined KPMG in 1983 and became the leader of KPMG’s Atlanta Real Estate Practice in 1997, and shortly thereafter became the Director of the Real Estate Practice for the entire Southeast. He also served on several national committees utilizing his expertise in the area of real estate finance including leasing, mergers and acquisitions, financings, public offerings and sales of real estate.
