Fisher, P.A. - Charlotte Boutique Accounting Firm


The original practice was founded in Charlotte almost 30 years ago. Emily Fisher, Principal and Business Advisor of Fisher, P.A. transitioned into the public accounting world in 2007 from a corporate finance career and an entrepreneurial period in the wine and food world. A succession plan was in place for the existing practice and in October of 2014 Emily transitioned into her next career path building a certified public accounting firm for the future.

Three years after Emily’s transition to Principal, Fisher, P.A. announced their new corporate office on 1108 East Boulevard in historic Dilworth.
