Member Spotlight

 

Berdon is consistently ranked by trade and consumer publications among the nation's top CPA and advisory firms. With professionals and staff at offices in Long Island and Manhattan, clients access a comprehensive array of accounting, tax, financial, and management advisory services. Through our specialized expertise and dedicated service teams, we advise on almost every aspect of a business at any stage of development – from startup through growth, diversification, and succession.  

Why Berdon? Three simple words say it all: Listen. Solve. Do. That's why clients choose Berdon and that's why clients stay with us, many for decades and across multiple generations. Our clients know, as do the many bankers, attorneys and other professionals who refer their clients and colleagues to us, that the Berdon team will listen to their issues, solve their problems, and execute the solution to the highest degree. With that mantra of Listen, Solve, Do, Berdon's professionals keep to the highest standards, deliver technical excellence, and exhibit professionalism in all that we do, in a culture that fosters teamwork and innovation. These principles have been the cornerstone of Berdon since our founding in 1917 and have propelled Berdon to national prominence. There are no technical silos at Berdon. Our professionals work as a team in the best interest of the client. With two offices, we do not wait for answers or experts from distant offices to respond to a client issue. This concentration of talent, combined with the collegial atmosphere of the firm, allow us to be nimble and responsive to client issues.

In addition, there are several other defining factors that separate Berdon from our peer firms: We sell no product and manage no assets. We advise you by examining your situation from all perspectives and introduce you to individuals whom we feel will best serve your interests. While other firms have launched insurance or wealth management arms, Berdon has steadfastly stayed away from these related practices. Our independence makes us more valuable to our clients; our independence makes our advice more honest.

The majority of Berdon's tax partners, in addition to being CPAs, also hold the J.D. and LL.M. degrees. This advanced education and knowledge of tax law allows us to bring a perspective to our clients that few accountants can provide. Simply put, we are a firm of over-achievers and we are proud of it. Our auditors bring an entrepreneurial perspective to their clients. They are big picture thinkers who think and act like business owners, not bean counters. They look behind the numbers at processes, procedures, policies, and more, to advise clients on operational and business issues as well as financial issues.
