New York, NY (July 6, 2016) – Leading accounting, tax and advisory firm, Marks Paneth LLP, announced today that the personnel of New York-based Kranz & Company LLP joined the firm, effective July 1, 2016. The addition brings thirteen new professionals to the firm – deepening its talent base across the high-net-worth and corporate tax practices.

Since 1973, Kranz & Company has provided high-net-worth, corporate tax and family office services to its diverse client base – which includes high-net-worth and self-employed individuals, privately-held businesses, private foundations, and trusts and estates.

“We are delighted about bringing on Kranz & Company’s talent. Our combined client base will benefit tremendously from our depth of expertise,” said Steven Eliach, Principal-in-Charge of the firm’s Tax Services. “The combination also serves as a testament to one of the key pillars of our firm’s strategic vision: being the best, not necessarily the biggest, in our primary markets – and this addition to our Private Client Group certainly moves us forward on that front.”

Diane Kranz, Managing Partner of Kranz & Company LLP, stated, “Marks Paneth’s proven commitment to excellence in client service, their genuine devotion to the community and their dedication to professional development align perfectly with Kranz & Company’s values.
