Roseland, N.J. (Feb. 19, 2004) -- Rothstein Kass, a top-ranked accounting and consulting firm headquartered here, has relocated its New York City offices to a 19,000-square-foot venue -- a move that more than doubled the size of its previous New York space.

The firm said the new offices house its traditional practice areas like accounting and auditing and tax, as well as such specialty niches as business entertainment and financial planning. It will be staffed by about 80 people.

“This allows us to service our clients in a more personal way, and especially expand our Wall Street practice,” said Maury Cartine, vice president of Rothstein Kass and head of its worldwide tax practice. “It also allows us to draw from a large and diverse employment pool. Because of our growth over the past several years, we knew early on that we would have to get larger space in New York.”

The New York relocation, which is a 12-year lease, follows a series of growth and new office openings for the 45-year-old firm, including expansions to its units in Dallas and Walnut Creek, Calif., and the debut of its Denver location last fall.

Over the past 10 years, Rothstein Kass, which also has offices in San Francisco, Beverly Hills and the Cayman Islands, has boosted revenue by more than $60 million, doubled the number of principals and quadrupled its number of professional staff. In 2003, Rothstein Kass generated $72 million in revenue.
