Upcoming Peer Review: Is Your Firm Ready?

What does it take to have an effective quality control system that leads you to a clean, unmodified peer review report? Find out how to prepare for your next review and what can be done on a daily basis to create a strong quality control environment for your firm. Identify the most common significant deficiencies that peer reviews uncover and what you can do to prevent them from occurring in your firm.
