Accounting firm J.H. Cohn said it plans to combine practices with Good Swartz Brown & Berns, a firm based in Woodland Hills, Calif.

After the deal, GSBB will retain its name but will operate as a division of J.H. Cohn. The merger will add approximately 125 employees to J.H. Cohn. The Roseland, N.J.-based firm has most of its offices in the Northeast, but this isn't its first office in California. The firm's San Diego office celebrated its 30th anniversary this month. The addition of GSBB will increase J.H. Cohn's employee count to more than 1,300. The firm had annual revenue of $221,371,000 in the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2008 (see J.H. Cohn Revenue Rises 26%).

GSBB provides a range of accounting, tax and business advisory services, including SEC consulting, internal audit and business risk consulting, tax planning and compliance, cost segregation, business valuations and personal financial planning.

Last year, J.H. Cohn merged with several firms, including Berenson of New York City; Haggett Longobardi of Glastonbury, Conn.; and Harrison & Kreuter of White Plains, N.Y.
