Public Company & SEC Services

SEC Audit & Related Services

RotenbergMeril is recognized as one of the Top 100 SEC Audit Firms in the United States and is one of the fastest growing SEC audit firms in the NY/NJ metropolitan area. Our firm is registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) and the Canadian Public Accountability Board (CPAB), and is qualified to audit companies throughout North America. RotenbergMeril is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Center for Audit Quality which requires member firms to have specific quality control policies and procedures in effect.

Our SEC Services Group focuses on serving publicly traded mid-sized and emerging-growth companies in a wide variety of industries. We have also been auditors of Business Development Companies registered under the 1940 Act. Our audits are specifically designed with consideration for your company’s internal controls, systems and personnel.

Our audit approach is designed to minimize business and audit risk associated with the audit process of public entities by maintaining high quality client acceptance standards. Our policies seek out relationships with company management who have a high degree of integrity and competence. Each engagement is reviewed by a partner who is not part of the engagement team in order to provide an objective assessment of the audit and accounting issues and financial statements before they are finalized.

We regularly provide guidance to our clients with their prospectuses, proxy statements, Form S-1’s, and Form 10-Q’s and 10-K’s. We are also experienced with reverse mergers and Form 10 transactions as a way of going public. We can guide companies through the IPO process, working with you and your SEC counsel on your Form S-1 and prospectus and the audit of your financial statements under PCAOB audit standards. We continually keep our clients informed of the latest SEC and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) developments, and we maintain an active involvement with audit committees to ensure their participation.
