Our accounting firm team at MDP

Big 4 Expertise, Small Accounting Firm Approach

The MDP client service philosophy has evolved from our understanding that each client is a unique organization with its own set of opportunities and challenges. We respond by drawing on our professional knowledge, our past experience with other clients, and our proven capabilities for creative problem solving.

We believe that extensive partner involvement builds a mutually beneficial relationship. In most cases, clients receive personal attention from two of our partners: the engagement partner and the colleague partner.

The engagement partner is responsible for all aspects of services rendered. The colleague partner becomes acquainted with key members of the client’s organization and becomes familiar with its operations, plans and objectives. In addition a senior member from the MDP tax group is assigned to each of our clients to ensure that all tax planning opportunities have been explored.

This arrangement gives clients the added assurance of accessibility to partners and senior personnel with an additional layer of business maturity and good judgement

MDP LLP employs over 35 professionals across a magnitude of backgrounds. Our team is comprised of Engagement Partners supported by Consulting Partners, many of whom have obtained their training and experience from major national and international accounting firms.
