Bernstein & Pinchuk LLP Expands to West Coast

New York-based Bernstein & Pinchuk announced that it has expanded to the West to merge with two firms, ACCellence LLP and Henry I. Somerfeld CPA. The office will be located on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Bernstein & Pinchuk provides tax and accounting services to high-net-worth individuals and small and mid-market businesses with a particular focus on China.

This expansion positions the firm to better serve clients who are either based in the West Coast or making investments there. The merger also strengthens the firm’s position servicing clients in the entertainment industry, including movies, television, music and talent management, the firm announced.

“Having a strong local presence will enable us to efficiently service their accounting, audit, tax and business consulting needs,” says Drew Bernstein, co-MP. “This merger also brings us strong expertise and client relationships in the entertainment industry, which is an increasingly active area of cross-border collaboration and investment.”

The office will provide a range of services, including tax preparation, international tax strategy, accounting, audit and assurance, estate planning, business advisory, business management, EB-5 support, and real estate transactions and consulting services, with Chinese-English bilingual support.

Leading the West Coast office will be two senior-level partners, Henry Somerfeld and Winston Yen. “Like us, they are focused on improving their client’s financial well being and effectively managing risks. I anticipate a smooth transition for our clients and am excited about the prospects of working together,” Somerfeld says.
