We strive to build a long-term relationship of trust with every client and place each client's interests ahead of ours.


We represent our capabilities honestly. We observe appropriate confidentiality of client information. We do not misrepresent our purposes in seeking information. We only make promises we can keep. We take the time to develop our recommendations and consider whether they can be defended upon challenge.

We are also committed to an environment where all individuals have an opportunity to flourish and succeed, regardless of their background, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.

Client First

We measure our success by our clients’ success. We make all of our resources available to our clients and commit ourselves wholeheartedly to their success. We seek to identify our clients' needs, not just deliver good work.


Our approach is to consider the dynamics of our clients' business and analyze the business as a whole. We identify multistate tax trends that may affect a client's current multistate tax approach and advise on alternatives and best practices.  Objectivity is crucial. Valid data, rigorous analyses, external perspectives and root causes serve as our foundation for objective decision making.

We take a long-term view of our relationships. We strive to build bonds founded on respect, honesty, mutual support and investment. We work together in a manner that is team oriented, constructive and challenging.  We respect our clients and fully appreciate the challenges they face. We value our clients’ knowledge and experience and gain an appreciation for their insight when developing multistate tax solutions. We want to provide solutions that strengthen our clients’ multistate tax capabilities.

We believe the most effective way to bring sustained value to a client is to become a partner with them. Each project gives us the opportunity to transform the client’s mindset as well as our own, thereby shaping the focus and priorities as it relates to their unique multistate tax issues.


We are committed to creating value for our clients that returns many multiples of their investment. We deliver tangible and lasting solutions, not simply presentations or ideas.

We set our standard for value creation extremely high. At SimekScott, value creation requires that our work deliver insight and change the mindset of our clients. Our work must lead directly to providing clarity to the complexities of our clients' multistate tax issues and implementing solutions in new ways. We must enhance client capabilities and deliver both a competitive advantage and bottom-line impact. We hold ourselves accountable to our value delivered standards by engaging candidly with our clients about the level of value created by our joint efforts.
