In the United States, Deloitte has 45,000 professionals with a single focus: serving our clients and helping them solve their toughest problems. We work in four key business areas — audit, financial advisory, tax and consulting — but our real strength comes from combining the talents of those groups to address clients’ needs. Fortune and BusinessWeek consistently rank our firm among the best places to work, which is good news for our talent and our clients alike. When the best people tackle the most compelling challenges, everyone wins.
“Deloitte” is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate to provide audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management and tax services to selected clients. These firms are members of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL), a UK private company limited by guarantee. Each member firm provides services in a particular geographic area and is subject to the laws and professional regulations of the particular country or countries in which it operates. DTTL does not itself provide services to clients. DTTL and each DTTL member firm are separate and distinct legal entities, which cannot obligate each other. DTTL and each DTTL member firm are liable only for their own acts or omissions and not those of each other. Each DTTL member firm is structured differently in accordance with national laws, regulations, customary practice, and other factors, and may secure the provision of professional services in its territory through subsidiaries, affiliates and/or other entities.
In the United States, Deloitte LLP is the member firm of DTTL. Like DTTL, Deloitte LLP does not provide services to clients. Instead, services are primarily provided by the subsidiaries of Deloitte LLP, including:
- Deloitte & Touche LLP
- Deloitte Consulting LLP
- Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP
- Deloitte Tax LLP
Deloitte LLP helps coordinate the activities of these subsidiaries. Deloitte LLP and these subsidiaries are separate and distinct legal entities. Each of these subsidiaries is organized under Delaware law, is separately capitalized, has its own Chairman and CEO and Board of Directors, and provides a distinct array of services.
When you contract for the provision of services with one of the subsidiaries of Deloitte LLP, only that subsidiary is responsible for the provision of those services and is the only entity with potential liability for any claims that may arise in connection with such services.
For more than 100 years, clients have relied on Deloitte LLP and its predecessor organizations for solutions to their ever-changing needs. We are a national and global leader today because we have sustained our clients’ trust and exceeded their expectations throughout our history.
Great leaders, such as William Welch Deloitte, George A. Touche, Charles Haskins and Elijah Watt Sells helped define and expand the foundations of our profession and the value of our service. As we embark upon our second century of achievement, the story of our forebears and the outstanding clients they served continues to motivate and inspire us. These great clients, great leaders and great moments shaped the culture of client service that distinguishes the organization today.
