    New York, NY – January 15, 2024 – CohnReznick LLP, one of the leading advisory, assurance, and tax firms in the United States, today announced that it has created a new level of leadership within its expanding Commercial Real Estate practice, elevating three partners to U.S. regional leadership positions.

    As one of the largest industry practices within the firm, commercial real estate is foundational for CohnReznick. The firm provides comprehensive services to developers, property owners and operators, REITS, private equity funds, and other key stakeholders across the commercial real estate ecosystem. CohnReznick has its deep expertise in all asset classes and provides guidance to clients in helping manage and grow their businesses.

    Emily Butler, CPA, Partner, will lead the Mid-Atlantic region. A long-time CohnReznick employee and member of the Assurance practice, Butler advises real estate funds, developers, owners, and operators of multiple asset classes including hotels, office, industrial, multifamily, and condo development. She is based in the firm’s Miami office.

    Paul Jhung, CPA, Partner, will lead the Northeast region. Based in CohnReznick’s Manhattan office, Jhung provides assurance and attestation services throughout a real estate entity’s life cycle, from start-up through dissolution.

    Wesley Prato, CPA, Partner, will lead the South/West region. An assurance partner, Prato works with developers and private equity investors in commercial real estate companies, often helping developers attract investors into their next fund or project or assisting them in the transition from first project to first portfolio. Prato is based in the Chicago office.

    More than ever, commercial real estate market issues and opportunities are varying greatly from region to region – and even among cities within a region,” said Ronald Kaplan, CPA, Partner - Commercial Real Estate Industry Leader. “Given this, along with the continuing growth of our practice, we felt that our clients would benefit from an added layer of leadership with expertise in specific regional commercial real estate dynamics and issues. The talent and marketplace knowledge that Emily, Paul, and Wes bring to the table will play an integral role in the advancement of our client service excellence and practice across the U.S.”
