Accounting firm J.H. Cohn LLP has combined its services with Marden, Harrison & Kreuter to build its presence in the New York area and expand its construction practice.

MHK will operate as a division of J.H. Cohn, but the firms do not consider the deal an acquisition because no financial transaction took place, according to Amy Koeppl, director of marketing at J.H. Cohn.

The deal is J.H. Cohn's third strategic expansion in the Northeast this year, following deals with Berenson LLP in May and Haggett Longobardi in June. Like the Berenson deal, the MHK combination expands the firm's foothold in the New York metropolitan area.

Under the terms of the deal, two of MHK's founders, Arnold I. Marden and Stephen J. Harrison, will serve as co-managing partners of the White Plains office, where MHK is based, and the firm's Long Island office will relocate to J.H. Cohn's office in Jericho.
