Based in Edmonton, Pennock Acheson Nielsen Devaney LLP (PAND) is a Chartered Professional Accounting firm, formed in 1995, comprised primarily of former partners and senior staff from large international firms. Our founding partners acquired a small list of clients and have grown this base into a practice that is now one of the most respected professional services firms in Alberta. PAND’s service areas include audit & assurance, private company accounting & advisory, taxation, and valuation & transactions.
When the Firm was initially founded, one of our prime concerns was the need for critical mass. We wanted to ensure that when opportunities for major assignments arose that we would have sufficient resources and expertise to deliver the services required by our clients. Today, with a team of over 50 professional staff, we have the required size and substance to meet the constantly growing and changing needs of our client base.
Our Service Philosophy
PAND prides itself in the close relationship and level of understanding established with each of our clients. Our people work hard to obtain a complete understanding of a client’s business, and work even harder to maintain their confidence in our services.
PAND’s ability to develop and maintain meaningful relationships with clients sets us apart from other professional services firms. In our business, size is not the important component of success but instead, bringing value to clients in a fun environment and being proud of who we are. We have grown steadily through new client additions and by providing extended and specialty services to our existing clients. In every new and existing client relationship, our objective is to be the client’s trusted advisor for all business and financial matters.
Our new clients are typically medium to large successful family-owned and privately-held companies who feel they have outgrown their previous advisors but want to stay with a local firm that provides hands-on professional service. We have also sourced new clients from the major international firms, where large independent businesses have made a choice to deal with a strong local practice.
