Orangewood Partners, a private investment firm, has made a strategic investment in DLA LLC, an internal audit and accounting advisory firm.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Fairfield, N.J., DLA’s professionals serve public and private companies, as well as individuals, across sectors. Through this partnership, DLA looks to drive growth across its business lines while maintaining its culture as a boutique advisory firm with a focus on serving its clients. DLA’s founder and chief executive officer, David Landau, will continue to lead the business alongside the existing leadership team, who will maintain a majority ownership in the company.

“By partnering with Orangewood, DLA will have the additional strategic and financial resources so that we can continue to invest in our people, hire top talent, and expand our service offerings,” comments Landau. “Further, we will also seek to leverage Orangewood’s deep experience and network to enter new markets and execute on our strategy to acquire firms in targeted cities.”
