"I want to welcome Michael Kane and his staff to E. Cohen and Company, CPAs. Our new affiliation will result in significant growth for the firm, and provide a wider array of new services and more depth of expertise in our practice," said Eric Cohen, Managing Partner of E. Cohen and Company, CPAs.

Kane Chartered Accountants began its professional practice in 1995, and provides accounting, tax, estate planning and business advisory services for real estate, high net worth individuals and closely held businesses. The firm's growth over the past 17 years has been predominantly internal, stemming from the referrals of the client base and those of other professionals; and its success has been in no small way also directly related to the success its clients have had in their business and personal pursuits.
