Since 1917, Berdon’s professionals keep to the highest standards, deliver technical excellence, and exhibit professionalism in all that they do, in a culture that fosters teamwork and innovation. These principles align to our mission and have been the cornerstone of Berdon since its founding.
There are no technical silos at Berdon, and with a teamwork-oriented approach we bring our collective expertise to advise clients—in a wide array of industries and on a variety of matters—to help them achieve their strategic and financial goals. With two offices—Manhattan and Long Island—we maintain a balanced concentration of talent, as well as a collegial atmosphere, to ensure that client needs and challenges are addressed in a timely fashion.
Berdon is consistently ranked by trade and consumer publications among the nation’s top accounting and advisory firms. With more than 400 professionals and staff, clients access specialized expertise and dedicated service teams advising on nearly every aspect of a business at any stage of development—from startup, through growth, diversification, and succession.
In addition, there are several other defining factors that separate us from our peer firms:
- We sell no products and manage no assets. Instead, we advise each client by examining their unique situation from all perspectives and introducing them to other service providers and industry professionals that we consider will best serve our client’s interests.
- The majority of our Tax Partners and other professionals are CPAs holding advanced degrees—among them, masters in law or taxation, frequently both—to bring a unique perspective to our clients that few accountants provide.
- Our auditors bring an entrepreneurial perspective to clients to advise on operational, business, and financial issues.
With Berdon, clients work with some of the leaders in the accounting profession who take pride in finding the right solutions to help them achieve continued growth and success. Clients tap into Berdon resources for strategies and techniques to minimize taxes, maximize profits, grow their businesses, enhance net worth, preserve and transfer wealth, and prepare for a financially secure retirement. Berdon professionals recognize and plan for the complex interplay between the needs and goals of businesses, families, and individuals, and truly understand the value of all stakeholders.
To successfully compete in today’s complex marketplace, the Berdon Team helps clients anticipate market changes—enabling clients to stay ahead of the latest trends and insights affecting the business environment, as well as the industries, in which they operate.
Our difference lies in the relationships we cultivate with our clients, which are both strong and lasting—often for generations. The reason our clients come to us again and again is due, in part, to our Firm’s faithfully executed mission and core values.
For all these reasons, assurance and accounting services provided by Berdon should never be viewed as commodity services. We deliver a meaningful report and management letter that help organizations move forward and give confidence to boards of directors as well as lenders.
