Citrin Cooperman Expands to West Coast

Citrin Cooperman is pleased to announce that the firm has expanded to the West Coast with the addition of Shuwarger & Company LLP (‘Shuwarger’), a boutique CPA firm.  Partners Robert Shuwarger and Richard Dettorre of the Los Angeles-based firm joined Citrin Cooperman effective June 1, 2019.

“We are extremely pleased to have Bob Shuwarger and his team come on board, and to officially open an office in West Los Angeles,” said Citrin Cooperman CEO, Joel Cooperman.  “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.  Shuwarger & Company LLP is a terrific addition with a history of excellent client service and long-term relationships.  We are looking forward to having them become part of our team.”

Shuwarger provides strategic tax planning and compliance, trust and estate planning, litigation support services and business management services to ultra high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, closely-held and family-owned businesses, private foundations, the entertainment industry, and families that want to preserve and grow their wealth.

“We’re thrilled to be part of the Citrin Cooperman team,” said Shuwarger’s Managing Partner, Bob Shuwarger.  “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 regionally-based firm into a national firm, with 12 domestic offices.  The firm also has locations in London, England; Ahmedabad, India; and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.  Citrin Cooperman was ranked 22nd largest CPA firm in the United States and is the fastest-growing, first-generation CPA firm in the country.
