Citrin Cooperman Acquires Connecticut Firm

New York-based Citrin Cooperman (FY09 net revenue of $90 million) acquired Schwartz & Hofflich (net revenue of $4 million), Norwalk, Conn., effective Nov. 1, continuing CC’s expansion and growth in Connecticut. 

Joining CC are partners Neil Bayer, Lawrence Feldman, Barry Newman, Eric Prescott, Pasqualino Spagnoli and Gilbert Watkins, in addition to 14 staff.   

The firm announced that it will close its Southport, Conn., office and will move into the S&H office in Norwalk, Conn.  CC has offices in New York City, White Plains, N.Y, Springfield, N.J., and Philadelphia. The Connecticut office now has seven partners and 20 staff.

“Connecticut is a very important market to our overall growth strategy and we will continue to expand the resources we offer to companies in the region,” says Alan Badey, the partner, who together with Mark Fagan, will oversee the Connecticut operations.
