EisnerAmper, a leading global business advisory firm with a heavy presence in New Jersey, on Thursday announced it has combined with Boston-based CPA firm Edelstein & Co. LLP.

The merge is expected to close in June.

Founded in 1968, Edelstein has 11 partners and a staff of more than 150 professionals. Edelstein offers accounting, tax and advisory services for the food & beverage, health care, financial services, nonprofit, real estate, professional services and other sectors.

“For 50-plus years, the professionals at Edelstein have been trusted business advisers. That type of longevity is a powerful testament to Edelstein’s leadership, practitioners and approach,” Jay Weinstein, EisnerAmper vice chair of industries and markets, said. “We warmly welcome our new colleagues from Edelstein, and we’re extremely excited about the opportunities in the ultra-critical Boston market.”

“Clients want their financial issues solved, concerns lessened and lives made easier. This spurs us to go the extra mile, because our clients’ success is completely interconnected with our own,” Scott Kaplowitch, Edelstein managing partner, said. “EisnerAmper is also a ‘go-the-extra-mile’ type of firm. We welcome the opportunity to leverage EisnerAmper’s vast resources in expertise and technology to help take our client service capabilities to the next level.”
