Accounting and business consulting firm Citrin Cooperman & Co. has plans to merge Brewster, N.Y.-based CPA firm J.P. Bryan & Co. into its fold.

The deal will add revenue of $600,000, one partner and three staff to Citrin Cooperman's White Plains office effective Jan. 1, 2005. J.P. Bryan & Co. founder John Bryan joins the firm as a partner.

J.P. Bryan & Co. specializes in serving the financial services industry and professional medical and dental practices.

"John and his staff will blend well into the fabric of our partnership," said Citrin Cooperman managing partner Joel Cooperman. "We already have strong ties to the financial industry and professional service practices, and I expect his practice to expand and grow once he begins to take advantage of our resources."

Citrin Cooperman boasts revenue of $35 million, three offices and 170 employees, including 35 partners. The firm, which ranked No. 45 on the 2004 Accounting Today Top 100 Firms List, specializes in serving the real estate industry, entertainment, food services, staffing and executive search, and professional services firms.

Last month, Citrin Cooperman expanded its offerings to include corporate governance services. The new practice will focus on offering Section 404 compliance and other corporate governance services to public, private and nonprofit companies.
