As your peer reviewer, Brown Smith Wallace will ensure your peer review is an investment in your future and not a simple compliance task.

We have established a peer review practice serving more than 30 firms across the nation. As the Firm for Growth, we have developed expertise in many industries unique to most firms as well as continued to expand in all “must select” industries as defined by the AICPA peer review program.

Our success has been the result of our own system of quality control (QC) and our peer reviews. We have looked to our peer review firm for guidance on how to continually improve and adapt to the ever-changing business landscape. This has benefited our personnel and our clientele. We are a top 100 firm that has grown organically to more than 300 personnel, including 30 partners, with expertise across a number of industries. We benefited from partnering with a peer review firm larger than our own to learn how to implement best practices consistently and to continually improve the quality of our work product.

Providing Value Beyond Compliance

Brown Smith Wallace will meet your essential peer review needs, but we will also bring value beyond compliance.

To receive the best feedback and advice, you need a firm that offers the same services and industry specializations that you do. We provide exceptional value because we offer expertise in “must-select” areas at Midwest professional rates. We offer knowledgeable feedback because of our extensive experience with financial services, insurance, construction, health care, employee benefit plans, not for profit, the public sector, service organization reporting, UG 200 entities and more.

You need someone who can help your firm grow by offering quality feedback on many aspects of how you do business. As your peer reviewer, we will develop an in-depth understanding of your firm, processes, personnel, and system of quality control. Communication is an essential aspect of our service: we will keep you up to date on performance and share any matters that come to our attention. We believe dialogue is essential to offering you the best peer review services that address your firm’s needs. Two of our firm core values are Excellence and Improvement. We persistently seek out new knowledge, understanding and insight in order to pursue the right choice – not just the convenient choice – for our clients.

Synergetic Co-Sourcing as Needed

Our national and global reach is extended by our affiliation with Moore Stephens North America, an independent and global accountancy and business advisory association of affiliated CPA and financial services firms throughout the United States and the globe. We have established strong, working relationships with firms that have expertise outside our own services and industries, which means we can minimize co-sourcing; maximize expertise; and maintain seamless, exceptional service.

Brown Smith Wallace consistently receives the “pass” rating, the highest rating possible, in our own peer reviews. View our most recent letter on our website. 

We are registered with the Government Audit Quality Center (GAQC), the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Center for Public Company Accounting Firms and the AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Quality Center.
