Heaton's 31 employees will join Katz's 30 partners and 215 staffers at Katz's current headquarters, 800 E. 96th St. No jobs will be cut as a result of the merger, company officials said.

"Joining forces with Katz, Sapper & Miller serves to strengthen this focus and enables us to continue serving our clients at a high level with extended expertise."
