BWB Joins BDO Seidman Alliance

Buffamante Whipple Buttafaro, P.C., a Western New York regional certified public accounting firm, has announced that it has joined the BDO Seidman Alliance, a nationwide association of independently owned local and regional accounting, consulting and service firms with similar client service goals. BWB remains an independent, privately owned firm.

As an independent member of the BDO Seidman Alliance, BWB can expand the services offered to clients by drawing on the resources of BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional service firms, and other Alliance members. BDO USA serves clients through 52 offices and over 400 independent Alliance firm locations nationwide. As an independent member firm of BDO International Limited, BDO serves multi-national clients through a global network of 1,264 offices in 144 countries.

“Our relationship with the BDO Seidman Alliance presents us with a great opportunity to access a broad range of technical knowledge and specialty services that can be used to assist our clients. Within the BDO network there is also a tremendous opportunity for member firms of BDO to align with us as strategic partners,” stated Jack Whipple, CPA, managing partner of BWB. “Our clients appreciate the technical resources and abilities of a larger firm, but prefer the autonomy, agility and fee structure of an independently owned organization. This alliance gives us the ability to offer them both.”

The BDO Seidman Alliance enhances member firm capabilities through the availability of supplementary professional services, comprehensive management consulting services, focused industry knowledge, customized state-of-the-art computer systems, and internal training programs.

“We believe the professionals of BWB share BDO’s commitment to exemplary client service and we want to welcome them into the BDO Seidman Alliance,” said Michael O’Hare, BDO USA, LLP Partner and executive director of Alliance Services.
