Berman Hopkins Earns Recognition as a 2022 IPA Best of the Best Firm



Continuing a tradition that stretches back nearly 30 years, INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) unveiled its list of the Best of the Best public accounting firms in the nation for 2022, and Berman Hopkins CPAs & Associates was recognized. Ranked on more than 50 metrics, top performers within the industry produce superior results while planning for long-term sustainability and growth, offering clients and staff a successful future.


“It is an honor to be recognized as a 2022 IPA Best of the Best Firm,” said Chris McDirmit, Managing Partner. “This award is a testament to our team and their commitment to outstanding service and ability to bring unique solutions. We attribute our success to adding unparalleled value for our clients.”


We're Not Everyone's Firm... We're YOUR Firm

For the past 65 years, Berman Hopkins’ relative size, length of time within the community, and reputation have provided clients with the essential advice and necessary resources to support the ongoing needs of their business. We build value-added relationships with each client to understand their business structure to provide solid solutions, and our approach offers clients direct access to the firm's decision-makers.


We are one of the largest independently owned CPA firms in Central Florida, with offices in Melbourne and Orlando to accommodate our clients throughout the region. Our 12 partners and staff are highly qualified with the education and experience to support our clients with outstanding accounting and financial services.


We accept clients only in the areas where we are proficient, and we are not "everyone’s" CPA firm. This mentality has been a critical change in our business model and has enabled our team to focus on being more than just a compliance-oriented firm. We offer support in construction, manufacturing, real estate, government contractors, government entity, public housing authorities, non-profits, and SEC industries.


Our firm specializes in assurance, audits, reviews, compilations, tax planning, tax compliance, international taxation, tax mergers and acquisition, business advisory, business valuations, forensic accounting, litigation support, IRS negotiations and controversies, succession planning, ESOPs, and consulting on other significant industry matters.


Earning Outstanding Status

The 2022 IPA Best of the Best, chosen from nearly 600 firms that were eligible for this prestigious accolade by participating in IPA’s 32nd Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms, are scattered across the U.S. and Canada and come in all sizes, ranging from 26 employees to nearly 5,400.


“Managing and leading through an ever-changing environment while achieving best-in-class results is an accomplishment worth celebrating,” says Mike Platt, principal with INSIDE Public Accounting. “Despite economic challenges and staffing shortages, this year’s class of Best of the Best firms continue to shine and excel, leading by example and showing others what is possible.”


By securing a spot on IPA’s 2022 Best of the Best Firms, Berman Hopkins continues to distinguish itself as one of the most capable, robust, and high-quality accounting firms.
