Have a passion for bold solutions and thinking outside the box? Look no further.

At Grant Thornton, our Audit Services practice is about more than high-quality financial statement audits. We look beyond accounting entries to analyze our client’s underlying activities and operations, leveraging state-of-the art tools and processes to conduct integrated audits of SEC issuers as well as financial statement audits for the privately owned.
