Prager Metis, a Top 100 Firm based in New York, has combined with William J. Keephart CPA, PA, a firm in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
The Keephart team will continue to operate remotely at this time but will eventually work out of Prager Metis’s office in Cranbury, New Jersey.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Prager Metis ranked 39th on Accounting Today

“We welcome their addition,” said Prager Metis national managing partner Lori Roth in a statement Thursday. “Their entrepreneurial culture and dedication to exceptional client service mirrors our own.
