New York accounting firms merge

J.H. Cohn LLP, the largest independent accounting and consulting firm headquartered in the Northeast, has combined practices with Frederic Kantor & Co. PC, a Manhattan-based public accounting firm serving high-net worth individuals and families working in entertainment and the creative arts, effective immediately.

The addition follows that of Good Swartz Brown & Berns, which announced its combination with J.H. Cohn on June 11 and primarily serves the Southern California market. The addition of Frederic Kantor & Co. supports J.H. Cohn's continued commitment to the New York metropolitan area and substantiates the firm's role as a leader in the entertainment and creative arts industries, while further confirming J.H. Cohn's notable bi-coastal and international growth.

Frederic Kantor's staff — which includes one partner and 35 professionals — will relocate from its current West 36th Street location to J.H. Cohn's New York headquarters, located at 1212 Avenue of the Americas. The firm will operate as Frederic Kantor & Co. PC, a Division of J.H. Cohn, and will benefit from Rick Kantor's extensive business management expertise specifically focused on a host of industries including talent, PR, and advertising agencies; photography; modeling; architecture and interior design; and fashion.

"Frederic Kantor & Co. is a perfect compliment to J.H. Cohn's core values, and the capabilities and talent we've gained enhances our ability to provide the highest level of partner-level service and personal attention to our clients in the entertainment and creative arts industries," said Robert DeMeola, managing partner of J.H. Cohn's New York office. "By expanding this unique skill set in the New York office specifically, we've set the stage to further grow our New York presence."

"Our clients face unique accounting and tax issues, and we're committed to providing expert, personalized and trusted counsel to them," said Rick Kantor, managing partner, Frederic Kantor & Co. PC. "With J.H. Cohn's vast knowledge and resources on the East and West coasts, as well as internationally, we can now concentrate on increasing capacity while continuing our laser focus on our valued clients."
