    New York, NY – November 14, 2023 – CohnReznick LLP, one of the leading advisory, assurance, and tax firms in the United States, today announced that Phil Langenderfer has joined the firm as an assurance partner focusing on the firm’s expanding Financial Sponsors & Financial Services industry practice. Based in Chicago, Langenderfer specializes in advising investment management clients including mutual funds, private equity funds, alternative investments funds, hedge funds, and investment advisers.
