Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow Announces Merger

Melville, N.Y.-based Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow LLP (NYBKW) and Want & Ender PC of New York announced the merger of the two firms, effective Jan. 1. The name of the combined firm will be Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow LLP.

NYBKW concentrates its practice in accounting, auditing, tax and business advisory services. The merger with Want & Ender, a boutique New York firm, will further the combined firm’s reputation in service to high-net-worth individuals and family groups in the New York metropolitan area.

“We’ve been looking for the right merger partner in New York and we found a complementary firm in Want & Ender,” says NYBKW MP Barry Berg. “They share our commitment to client service and technical excellence. Our combined strength and increased depth of resources will be an asset to current clients and an enticement to future clients.”

“The ability to offer an international reach to our clients was a major incentive as well,” says Want & Ender MP Stanley Want. “The firm is a member of the McGladrey Alliance, one of the largest national accounting associations, and a benefit to our clients with international interests.”

In addition, the firm is proud to welcome as a partner Philip Kanyuk, formerly of Baker Tilly. Kanyuk brings more than 20 years of experience in investigative and forensic accounting services for the public and private sector.

“What attracted me is the firm’s commitment to providing superior service for clients,” says Kanyuk. “In addition, a growing and expanding firm offers more opportunities to current and future employees.”

The firm also announced that Michael Corkery has been admitted as partner, after nearly 15 years of accounting experience. With these additions, Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow grows to 60 people, including 13 partners.
