Firm Overview

FORVIS company logo

FORVIS, LLP ranks among the nation’s top 10 professional services firms. FORVIS is driven by the commitment to use our forward vision to deliver unmatched client experiences. FORVIS was formed in 2022 through the combination of two firms with more than 150 years combined experience, both committed to providing high-quality personal service – BKD, LLP (BKD) established in Kansas City and Joplin, Missouri, in 1923, and Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP (DHG), established in High Point, NC, in 1959.

BKD and DHG each bring a distinct legacy of what it means to provide professional services that go above and beyond. By joining forces to become FORVIS, we are embarking on a bold path with forward vision. With more than 5,400 dedicated professionals who serve clients in all 50 states, as well as across the globe, FORVIS offers comprehensive assurance, tax, advisory, technology, forensic and valuation services, and wealth management services.
