About CohnReznick LLP

New York-headquartered CohnReznick is the 11th-largest accounting firm in the U.S. by revenue, according to Accounting Today's 2015 Top 100 Firms ranking. The firm is the result of the 2012 combination of Reznick Group and J.H. Cohn. Today, CohnReznick provides accounting, advisory, and tax services to companies in numerous industries, including affordable housing, commercial real estate, renewable energy, private equity, financial services, hospitality, apparel and fashion, construction, entertainment, healthcare, government, manufacturing and wholesale distribution, not-for-profit, law firms, retail and consumer products, government contractors, and technology and life sciences. CohnReznick employs more than 2,700 people, including approximately 300 partners. 

Reznick Group's roots go back to 1977 when three friends-David Reznick, Stuart Fedder, and Ivan Silverman-opened an accounting practice together in Washington, D.C. Reznick, Fedder & Silverman soon moved to Bethesda, Md., and from there expanded to a second office in Baltimore. Further growth added locations in Charlotte, N.C.; Atlanta, Ga.; and Sacramento, Calif. The establishment of the federal low-income housing tax credit program in 1986 changed the trajectory of Reznick Fedder & Silverman. Realizing the opportunity the program presented to its real estate clients, the firm developed a specialty in the affordable housing arena. 

J.H. Cohn's roots can be traced to 1919, when one of the first CPAs in the U.S., Julius H. Cohn, founded an eponymous accounting firm in Newark, N.J. Julius Cohn ran the firm for 40 years, after which his son, Ted, took over. Ted was responsible for widening J.H. Cohn's reach, opening an office in San Diego, Calif., as well as expanding the firm's services to include management efficiency, technology consulting, and reporting and compliance advisory services for SEC-registered companies. 

Beginning in the 1990s, both J.H. Cohn and Reznick Fedder & Silverman-eventually renamed Reznick Group-went through a period of growth. In 2012, the two firms, recognizing their similar cultures and the complementary nature of their capabilities and geographic presence, combined. Today, CohnReznick has offices from Boston to Los Angeles (as well as in the Cayman Islands and Chennai, India) and provides a wide range of services to public and private companies across numerous industries.
