Citrin Cooperman Expands to West Coast

New York-based Citrin Cooperman (FY17 net revenue of $244 million) has announced that the firm has expanded to the West Coast with the addition of Shuwarger & Company LLP of Los Angeles, a boutique CPA firm with a staff of 10.

Partners Robert Shuwarger and Richard Dettorre and the team joined Citrin Cooperman on June 1.

“A significant number of our clients, particularly our entertainment clients, are located on the West Coast, and we’ve searched long and hard for a firm in L.A. that would be the right fit for them and for our firm,” says CEO Joel Cooperman. “Shuwarger & Company LLP is a terrific addition with a history of excellent client service and long-term relationships.”

The firm provides strategic tax planning and compliance, trust and estate planning, litigation support services and business management services to high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs, closely held and family-owned businesses, private foundations, the entertainment industry and families.

Shuwarger says, “Our clients will benefit from an expanded service line while retaining the high level of client service they’ve been accustomed to. Citrin Cooperman is a strong firm with great leadership and a talented team.”

With the addition of the Los Angeles office, Citrin Cooperman will transform their U.S. practice from a regional firm to a national firm, with 12 domestic offices. The firm also has three international locations.
