NYC Accounting Firm, specializing in Family Office Services to Join Forces with Prager Metis.

 Prager Metis CPAs, a top 100 public accounting and consulting firm with offices in the U.S. and London, announces the merger with Polakoff & Michaelson, CPA, P.C., a boutique accounting firm based in New York City, which focuses on Family Office Service. The combined firms will offer a wider breadth of services to family office entities and high-net worth individuals as well as accounting services. The merger is effective immediately.

Craig Michaelson is the Chairman and CEO of P&M, a firm founded more than 75 years ago. What sets aside P&M from other Family Office Service firms is that his team works very closely with their clients to learn about their lives and care for their issues. He says, “They are more than just clients, they’re like our family.” Michaelson also added, “We are thrilled to be joining such a dynamic firm with Los Angeles, London and New York offices, and their additional services and technological capabilities. They provide the depth and scale that we were looking to provide for our clients.”

“We are very excited with their addition of Polakoff & Michaelson,” says Glenn Friedman, CEO of Prager Metis CPAs.  “We wanted to expand our service capabilities by increasing our family office services. Polakoff & Michaelson’s bring a tremendous breadth of experience as well as a shared value of hands-on client service. It is the perfect fit.”
