Our History


CohnReznick’s history dates back almost as far as the profession of public accounting in the United States. In 1919, Julius H. Cohn, one of the country's first certified public accountants, founded the firm J.H. Cohn in Newark, New Jersey. His central belief was that providing consistent, excellent service and serving your community and people would bring success for both the firm and its clients. For more than forty years, he guided the firm through successive periods of growth.

The 1970s were a period of considerable expansion for J.H. Cohn. The decade also brought the founding, in 1977, of Reznick Fedder & Silverman, in Washington, DC. The small firm, which specialized in real estate, quickly outgrew its early offices, relocating to Bethesda, Maryland and opening additional offices.
The establishment of the federal low-income housing tax credit program in 1986 dramatically changed the trajectory of Reznick Fedder & Silverman. Quickly realizing the opportunity the program presented to its real estate clients, the firm soon established itself as a national leader in the affordable housing arena, as well as the commercial real estate industry, representing clients throughout the capital stack . This growth allowed the firm to expand and add offices across the country.

Beginning in the 1990s, both J.H. Cohn and Reznick Fedder & Silverman—eventually renamed Reznick Group—went through a period of intense growth, acquiring smaller firms and establishing themselves as two of the country's major independent accounting firms. In 2012, the two firms, recognizing their similar cultures and the complementary nature of their capabilities and geographic presence, combined to create what is now one of the top accounting firms in the United States.

Today, CohnReznick, with headquarters in New York City, has offices from Boston to Los Angeles (as well as in the Cayman Islands and Chennai, India) and provides a complete range of services to both public and private companies across numerous industries. While the Firm has grown greatly since its beginnings, its central philosophy of world-class client service and a commitment to the community and its employees continues to this day.
