Accounting firm Holtz Rubenstein Reminick plans to hold a town hall-style meeting for New York-based individuals or businesses that were defrauded by Bernard Madoff's investment scam.

The meeting is scheduled for Jan. 21 at the Jumeirah Essex House in Manhattan, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.

"The firm is making this gesture because of its commitment to help New Yorkers and their business community through one of its toughest economic times," said managing partner Francis J. Candia (pictured) in a statement. "The fallout from the Madoff scheme is simply compounding an already bad economic environment in the New York metropolitan area."

An HRR Response Team has been assembled to handle the accounting, tax and business fraud issues resulting from the scheme. The team consists of Timothy W. Mulcahy, partner-in-charge of taxation services; Joel R. Podgor, partner-in-charge of white collar crime and tax fraud services; and Gordon Siess, partner-in-charge of not-for-profit services.
