Newly Formed CohnReznick to Create Growth Opportunities for Renewable Energy Practice


Combination of firms brings the international strength and expanded networks of
J.H. Cohn LLP to Reznick Group’s successful Renewable Energy Practice

October 15, 2012 (New York, NY) – CohnReznick LLP, which was formed by the combination of the two top 20 public accounting firms, J.H. Cohn LLP and the Reznick Group, P.C., today highlighted the new opportunities for the firm’s renewable energy practice as the company expands its capabilities in the U.S. and internationally.  Now the 11th largest accounting, tax and advisory firm in the country with 25 offices and 2,000 employees throughout the world, CohnReznick’s renewable energy practice will be led by Reznick Group principals Timothy Kemper, CPA, and Anton Cohen, CPA, and will have increased opportunities for growth as a result of J.H. Cohn’s international networks and well established construction and manufacturing practices.

“The experience and network that J.H. Cohn brings to the table will expand opportunities for the renewable energy practice as we work to continue to grow,” said Kemper. “There is a large international market for renewable energy, particularly in structuring renewable energy finance deals which is our area of expertise. This combination will play a significant role as we work to expand our networks and take advantage of those opportunities.”

Prior to the combination, Reznick Group had established a successful energy practice with a track record of providing accounting, tax and business advisory services to the renewable energy industry. Its experts helped their clients leverage renewable energy incentives and navigate through complex regulations. Under the newly formed CohnReznick, this practice will continue to offer the same high-quality expertise along with a newly expanded network of resources that will increase opportunities for the practice.

Energy practice co-leader Cohen said, “Through this combination, our renewable energy practice will be exposed to a worldwide network of independent accounting and consulting firms, so we expect there to be good opportunities; similarly, our energy expertise will be a welcome resource for the J.H. Cohn construction and manufacturing practices. This is an exciting combination that will afford many new opportunities for us to deliver real value as we further build our renewable energy practice.”
