Technical accounting consulting

What do you want to accomplish?

Whether it’s preparing compliant financial statements for an initial public offering or properly recording a business combination resulting from a merger or acquisition, accounting can be complex. It often requires the focused attention of professionals with significant expertise and seasoned judgment.

We can provide ongoing technical accounting and financial reporting services, including:

  • On-call technical accounting consulting

  • In-depth reviews of technical accounting memoranda and conclusions
