At Topel Forman, you’ll find the high level of talent and expertise you’d expect from a larger firm, but with the accessibility and collaboration that are usually only available at a smaller organization. Rather than operating solely within your own department, you can expect to work directly with clients, senior level management, and partners with knowledge of various disciplines. A proactive, hands-on approach to our clients gives you the opportunity to grow in your expertise and advance in your career. Flexible hours and a family-oriented culture promote the balance between professional development and an enjoyable family life. Our Denver office is located in the heart of downtown, right off of the 16th Street Mall and steps away from public transportation, restaurants, and the Colorado State Capitol Building.
