Deloitte is the brand under which approximately 169,000 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 (DTT), a Swiss Verein. 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. DTT helps coordinate the activities of the member firms but does not itself provide services to clients. DTT and the member firms are separate and distinct legal entities, which cannot obligate the other entities. DTT and each DTT member firm are only liable for their own acts or omissions, not those of any other entity. Each DTT 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 their territories through subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or other entities.
In the United States, Deloitte LLP is the member firm of DTT. Like DTT, 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. Deloitte's Special Programs service line provides cross-functional support and consulting services to Federal Intelligence Agencies.
In March 2009, BearingPoint announced a plan to sell substantially all of its businesses to a number of parties: Deloitte acquired the majority of BearingPoint's North American Public Services business. BearingPoint's history reaches back more than 100 years to Peat Marwick. After completing an initial public offering in 2001, the company changed its name from KPMG Consulting to BearingPoint in 2002. The Department of Defense generated about 11% of BearingPoint's sales; overall, U.S. government agencies accounted for nearly 30%.
