Professional Services

As an increasing number of companies seek out legal, business process outsourcing and other services, the professional services market is getting more complex. Professional services firms need to carefully consider their strategy, structure and investment, and must continue to differentiate themselves from the competition.

Bederson works with professional service firms in a number of industries ranging from architectural, engineering, interior design to environmental service firms. We understand the unique operating environments and challenges each face.

We help clients in professional service industries with accounting, audit, tax compliance and planning, merger-and-acquisition, owner transition, due diligence and other complimentary services.

Medical Services

Healthcare industry executives are facing unprecedented challenges as they contend with delivering higher levels of patient care in the face of rising costs and declining reimbursement rates. Add to this an uncertain regulatory and compliance environment and complex Federal, Medicare and Medicaid requirements.

Our highly trained medical services practice works with a wide range of healthcare providers – including ophthalmologists, dentists, physical therapy, and ambulatory centers – offering audit, tax and consulting services that help them to navigate change and reduce costs, while maintaining the high-quality infrastructure and investment that propels long-term success.

Retail

The transparency of the internet has given consumers unprecedented leverage, while presenting new competitive challenges to retailers, who also face issues like shifting markets, rising costs and reduced profits.

Our team of experienced professionals can offer valuable assistance with issues like pricing strategies, management and operational issues,  helping you address issues such as employee benefit plan costs, technology, succession, and inventory control.
