The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2013 listing of the top firms in Atlanta for Employee Benefit and Compensation Consulting revealed that Frazier & Deeter has moved up in the rankings to become the #5 firm in the region, and the only CPA firm within the top ten providers.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle ranking of firms is published annually. Firms are ranked based on the number of professionals providing services related to employee benefits and compensation.
“We are delighted with the growth of our Employee Benefit Plan practice,” said Seth McDaniel, Managing Partner of Frazier & Deeter. “As one of the few regional firms with a dedicated practice for employee benefit plan audits, it is an honor to be the only CPA firm ranked among the biggest providers.”
Jeff James, Partner, Employee Benefit Plan Services Group, noted, “Our practice continues to grow as employers recognize the need for CPA firms who not only perform plan audits but also have an in-depth understanding of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and the implications of the myriad of regulations issued by the Department of Labor and Internal Revenue Service.”
“This annual ranking represents firms with the level of expertise to deliver superior performance for some of the largest employers in the Southeast,” said Chris Etheridge, Partner, Employee Benefit Plan Services Group. “Employee benefit plan audits are highly specialized situations with unique legal requirements, and our focus in that area has enabled us to build an exceptional team.”
Frazier & Deeter’s employee benefit plan practice assists clients with retirement plan design issues, plan operation and compliance, and other general employee benefit areas in addition to plan financial statement audits.
