New York City, NY - December 19, 2011
EisnerLubin llp, a New York City-based Certified Public Accounting firm, has merged its practice with regional CPA firm WithumSmith+Brown, PC (WS+B). With an effective date of November 1, 2011, the union adds 55 professionals to the WS+B roster, including nine partners. The EisnerLubin staff currently based in the office located at 1411 Broadway between 39th and 40th Streets will remain at that location, under the WithumSmith+Brown name.
Robert Simon, former managing partner of EisnerLubin who will continue to be the partner in charge of the NYC office within the merged firm, commented, "We are very excited about the opportunities this merger means for both of our firms and our clients. It has been EisnerLubin's goal to expand its presence in New Jersey and by joining WS+B, we now have offices in seven New Jersey towns as well as Pennsylvania, Maryland, Florida and Colorado. EisnerLubin clients will maintain the same personal relationships they have enjoyed with our firm's professionals but now will have access to a much broader array of service offerings and expertise to assist them in meeting their goals."
William R. Hagaman, Jr., CEO and managing partner of WS+B, is equally enthusiastic about the merger. "We have been seeking a NYC-based partnership for a long time to solidify our position in Manhattan in order to better serve - and expand - our Metropolitan NY client base. The EisnerLubin team is a great fit given the natural synergy between our two firms in terms of work ethic, growth strategies and culture. Both firms share a common commitment to excellence, putting our staff, our clients and our communities in a position of strength. The possibilities resulting from this merger are endless."
