J.H. Cohn combines services with Charles Brucia & Co.

Details: J.H. Cohn LLP, one of the top 15 accounting and consulting firms in the United States, has combined practices with Charles Brucia & Co., a Manhattan-based public accounting firm that offers business management services to the television, motion picture and music production industries.

Charles Brucia & Co., which will operate as Charles Brucia & Co., A Division of J.H. Cohn, was founded in 1976 by Charles J. Brucia, who has joined J.H. Cohn as the division's managing director and as a partner in the firm. Brucia is well known throughout the television industry for his ability to create and preserve wealth for the firm's corporate and high-net-worth individual clients. He began his career at Arthur Young & Co. and Oppenheim, Appel, Dixon & Co., and has extensive knowledge and experience in the accounting-, audit- and tax-related issues impacting the television, motion picture and music production industries, including financing, licensing and distribution.

"By combining with Charles Brucia & Co., we reiterate our commitment to further establishing ourselves in the New York and Los Angeles markets and in the area of client business management, the stage for which was set when we combined with Frederic Kantor & Co. in 2008," said Robert DeMeola, office managing partner of J.H. Cohn's New York office.

Under the terms of the business combination, the firm's staff - which, in addition to Brucia, includes four professionals - relocated from its Madison Avenue location to J.H. Cohn's New York headquarters, located at 1212 Avenue of the Americas.

"J.H. Cohn's bench strength in both New York and Los Angeles affords us the opportunity to increase the breadth of services to clients on both coasts, and enables us to concentrate on increasing capacity while maintaining our focus on our valued clients," said Charles Brucia. "For more than 30 years, we've dedicated ourselves to helping our clients improve their business through our core belief in providing quality, reliable, consistent and personalized service, and are pleased to have associated ourselves with a firm that operates the same way."
