About BDO Consulting

BDO and friends
New York City-based BDO Consulting provides litigation, investigation, restructuring and risk advisory services to corporations, law firms, insurance companies, financial services companies and government organizations in a wide range of industries, including banking, insurance, subprime lending, hedge fund, broker dealer, retail, technology and software.

BDO Consulting is a division of BDO USA, LLP, which is one of the United States’ largest providers of assurance, tax, financial advisory and consulting services.  BDO is also the U.S. member firm of the larger BDO International, a global network of accounting and consulting firms that operates in more than 100 countries.  Each BDO member firm is an independent legal entity.  BDO Consulting prides itself on its access to the international BDO member firm network, as well as to the BDO USA network, which includes 37 offices and more than 400 independent alliance locations throughout the U.S.

Service rules
Since July 2007, BDO Consulting has been led by Carl Pergola, who was previously the head of the firm’s litigation and fraud investigation practice.  He has carried on the firm’s mantra of “service rules,†which in BDO’s terms means focusing on long-term client relationships and top-notch service.  Senior professionals at BDO Consulting are actively involved in each client engagement, from inception to conclusion.  To avoid sticker shock, the firm also says it communicates regularly with its clients about the scope of each engagement and discusses fees up front to “avoid surprises.† Boasting a structure that's more nimble than the Big Four firms and claiming to have virtually no voluntary employee turnover, BDO Consulting has undertaken some high-profile engagements, including work for AOL Time Warner, Enron, American Express, Bayou Funds, Lipper Hedge Funds and Fannie Mae, to name a few.
