Tracey, David, and their partners have done a remarkable job building their firm and its reputation. Besides their technical skills, Tracey, David, and many of their people will play a significant role in our firm’s leadership.”

Untracht Early’s strong foundation in hedge fund and alternative investment work, dovetails perfectly with Citrin Cooperman’s firmly established financial services practice. Additionally, Untracht Early also brings a significant individual tax practice focused on serving high and ultra-high net worth clients and their closely held businesses.
