Regional audit and tax-consulting firm Holtz Rubenstein & Co. LLP and New York-based Reminick, Aarons & Co. have merged their practices, effective Oct. 1.

The combined entity will operate under the brand of Holtz Rubenstein Reminick LLP and will have a combined staff of roughly 150, with 21 partners and revenues in the $22 million-to-$25 million range.

"First and foremost, it seemed like a good fit," explained Frank J. Candia, managing partner of Holtz Rubenstein Reminick. "Their culture was similar to ours and there were a lot of practice compatibilities. But they also had expertise in areas we wanted to strengthen."

Candia added that the merger also gives the firm a strong presence in Manhattan. Talks between the two firms began last fall before picking up in earnest after tax season.

Andrew H. Weiss, former managing partner at Reminick, Aarons, will serve as partner-in-charge of the HRR office in New York City. Reminick's client niches include financial services for high-net-worth individuals, as well as trust and estate services, and litigation and law firm support. In addition to audit and tax consulting to the middle market, Holtz Rubenstein has an established niche in the nonprofit arena.
