Our Approach to Client Service

Our engagements include multiple internal reviews and we’ve implemented an annual internal inspection process to review selected engagements to ensure they adhere to professional standards and firm policies.

We undergo peer review by another major accounting firm and PCAOB examination. Our firm is also subject to routine inspection by regulatory agencies such as the Auditor of State of Ohio, the Office of the Inspector General and Department of Labor. We continue to receive an unqualified “clean” opinion.

Our experts can help you stay compliant, manage risk, and make smart decisions. But we also respond promptly, deliver quality and truly care about your success.
