A Different Kind of Audit Experience

Access to national SEC specialists

Face-to-face discussions throughout the audit process are critical to addressing key issues. Our engagement partner, engagement quality reviewer and director will work closely with your team in the field throughout the audit to facilitate timely delivery of services and communications. Our partners and clients will have direct access to our national SEC leaders and specialists to promptly assist with complex or unusual transactions.

Our national office partners’ involvement and relationships with the SEC and FASB as well as other regulatory bodies and committees enable us to provide quick insight on a wide range of matters.
