"Orchid Advisors’ Mock Inspection Service provided far more insight into our business than we anticipated. Orchid goes beyond other firms who review your A&D Book, Forms 4473, and maybe other ATF paperwork; and who then recite regulations back to you verbatim. Orchid looks at your business as a whole and how all the countless moving parts of your business operate in order to identify any issues needing correction before ATF arrives, and provides actionable intelligence to run your operations in a compliant manner."

— Dan Spencer, General Counsel, CZ-USA
