We have decades of experience auditing and providing advice to companies that require application of US accounting and auditing standards.

We support companies that require application of US accounting and auditing standards.


Our audit teams are equipped with a high level of technical skills in the areas of US GAAP, IFRS, Swiss Code of Obligations, US GAAS, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations and PCAOB auditing standards and empowered with professional skepticism to deliver high-quality audits, which are vital for maintaining trust in the financial reporting process and the integrity of financial information.

Our US GAAP team performs audits efficiently using a multidisciplinary approach which means that audit engagement teams have access to professionals in Switzerland and abroad in such areas as forensics, tax, information risk management and valuation, providing them with a broad understanding of an organization, and enabling teams to focus on key areas of risk, adequacy of internal controls, and potential fraud. Our extensive experience is vital to both public and private entities as well as companies that are considering going through the initial public offering process in the US.
