    “CohnReznick has been serving Florida businesses in many different industries for years,” said CohnReznick CEO David Kessler. “Establishing an office in Miami allows us to bring our full capabilities to meet the expanding needs of the South Florida marketplace and, in particular, to build upon our expertise and market growth in our Real Estate, Financial Services, and Government practices, and support the capital markets with transaction advisory and restructuring services.

    Notes Micholas, “Miami is so well known for its diverse population, exciting attractions, and beautiful beaches. But just as impressive is the flourishing business community the city has created.” He adds, “I’m honored to lead our Miami office and to help add a new chapter to our firm’s growth strategy.”  

    CohnReznick has leased more than 4,100 square feet in the 1221 Brickell Building, a Class A, Gold LEED certified building. With stunning views of the Miami skyline and easy access to Coral Gables. Downtown Miami, and the Miami suburbs, the building offers a daycare center, fitness center, café, and an outdoor terrace. CohnReznick worked with its national broker Gregg Metcalf (JLL) and Miami-based broker Adam Talbot (Cresa) in securing the space.
