Camarillo-based Farber & Hass LLP has merged with Granada Hills-based Hurley & Co. CPAs to solidify both firms' Securities and Exchange Commission audit practice.The new entity will be called Farber Hass Hurley & McEwen LLP. Terms were not disclosed. Both of the combined firms' office locations will remain open.

Farber & Hass's trio of partners - Patricia Farber, Jeff Hass and Larry McEwen - all spent time with Big Four firms before opening their own practice in 1990. Their office has a current staff of about a dozen.

Mike Hurley, who founded Hurley & Co. in 1986, will continue to head up the Granada Hills office with a smaller staff.

The Web site for the new firm claims that it is one of the only CPA firms in Ventura, Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo Counties approved to practice before the SEC, and, combined, will now have one of the largest SEC practices in the state.
