Terms and Conditions

GRS WEB SITE TERMS OF USE AND DISCLAIMER

“GRS” is the national brand under which Gabriel, Roeder, Smith & Company Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries operate and provide professional services.  While each company within the GRS group is a separate legal entity, “GRS” is often used to refer either to the individual companies within the group or to several or all of them collectively. However, each company within the GRS group has its own legal status and is responsible for its own services and work product and not those of any other GRS group company.
