Client feedback fortified the Firm’s ranking for the second consecutive year

SAN FRANCISCO — BPM LLP, one of the 50 largest public accounting and advisory firms in the country, has been recognized on Forbes America’s second annual list of the “Best Tax and Accounting Firms,” marking the Firm’s second appearance on the list and underscoring the success of its client service offerings and resources across its geographic reach.

For its “Best Tax and Accounting Firms” list, published Dec. 1, Forbes partnered with research company Statista to develop a list of the most recommended firms for tax and accounting services across the nation. In 2020, the publication included 227 firms, counting BPM, on its list. The data is gathered through peer and client participation in an independent survey. Participants submitted their recommendations according to specializations, services and professional experiences.

“While 2020 has been a year of change, our commitment to our clients’ growth and sustainability has not wavered, and we are honored to be ranked among the top in the country by the clients we serve,” said BPM CEO Jim Wallace. “This national recognition confirms our ‘Because People Matter’ culture makes the difference in our profession – and that is truly rewarding.”

This is the latest accolade the BPM team has garnered in 2020 and confirmation of the Firm’s consistency in building out and delivering robust services to support its clients. The Firm has been recognized on INSIDE Public Accounting’s “Top 100 Firms” list, received ClearyRated’s “Best of Accounting Diamond Award” for client service excellence and ranked #22 on Vault’s 2021 “Accounting 50” list.

“These awards underscore the true talent and depth of our colleagues,” said Wallace. “We look forward to serving our communities and supporting our clients, as they grow and thrive in the years ahead.”
