KH&H will operate under the name Kahn Hoffman & Hochman LLC, a Division of RSSM LLP. The merger adds 40 accountants to RSSM, including four partners, increasing RSSM’s total manpower to over 225. The firm will continue to serve KH&H’s clients from its existing offices in New City and White Plains, N.Y. Michael Hochman will be the partner-in-charge of operations in the New City office.

Financial terms were not disclosed. RSSM ranked 72nd on Accounting Today’s 2010 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $42.1 million.

KH&H was founded in 1974 by Gary Kahn. Under his guidance, the firm has enjoyed substantial growth while emerging as a leading force in the Rockland County business community. It is now the largest accounting firm in Rockland County, providing tax and business consulting services to over 600 businesses and 1,200 individual clients.

“We look forward to having KH&H’s partners and staff join the RSSM family and making RSSM bigger, better and stronger as the premier accounting firm servicing the tri-state metropolitan area,” said RSSM managing partner Martin L. Greenberg in a statement. “We are enthusiastic about continuing the high level of service and expertise Gary Kahn, Enid Hoffman, Michael Hochman, Richard McGuinness, William Hughes, Maryann Schugmann and all of KH&H’s excellent staff have provided their valued client base.”

“KH&H will now be able to offer their new and old established client base expanded premiere accounting, auditing and tax services along with specialty services,” he added

“We are very proud of our long tradition in Rockland County,” said Hochman. “However, we also recognize that the next step for our team and our clients was to merge with a firm committed to quality and that has the expanded capabilities RSSM has. This merger will enable us to significantly expand the services to our clients in Rockland and Westchester counties, as well as in the New York metropolitan area.”

He noted that RSSM shares his firm’s philosophy of helping clients grow and succeed. “The merger will broaden and deepen our service offerings, enabling us to offer more comprehensive business advice tailored to our clients,” Hochman added.
