ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Short and sweet
In 1955, Norman S. Rachlin opened an accounting practice in Miami Springs, Fla. When his workload grew, he hired his first employee: his wife. By 1961, business was going strong, so the Rachlins moved to Coral Gables and hired another accountant, Harvey Miller. Norman S. Rachlin & Company expanded to Fort Lauderdale in 1965 and changed its name to Rachlin and Miller shortly thereafter. A merger with Stanley L. Cohen & Company in 1976 changed the firm name to Rachlin & Cohen; at the time, it had 75 employees and a client list that spanned Dade County. Tax law specialist Lawrence Blum, who’d come onboard in the early 1970s, was a pioneer of litigation consulting, and helped build up work with municipalities and utility companies. By 1983, Rachlin & Cohen was one of the top 25 firms in the Florida region.
Norman Rachlin and Stanley Cohen both retired by 1990, leaving the firm in the Larry Blum’s hands. Under Blum’s leadership as managing partner, Rachlin & Cohen’s headcount passed 100, and the firm merged with Holtz & Company in 1995. As Rachlin, Cohen & Holtz its earnings surpassed $10 million, and in 1997, the firm combined with Mukamal, Appel, Fromberg & Margolies. In February 2008, the firm’s name was edited down to simply Rachlin LLP, which has over 225 employees in five offices throughout Florida.
