BDO's roots date back to 1910 when 22-year-old immigrant Maximilian Seidman, who grew up in a tenement on Manhattan's Lower East Side, opened a one-room office on New York City’s Park Row. In 1917, Seidman & Seidman opened a second office in Michigan, where the firm had an early focus on furniture manufacturers. In 1963, Seidman became international in scope, joining firms from Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, and the U.K. to form an organization called Binder Seidman International Group. This name was changed to Binder Dijker Otte (BDO) in 1973, in honor of the three European founding members of the organization; hence BDO International.

The U.S. member firm retained the name “Seidman,” inherited from its founder. In 2010, BDO Seidman joined BDO member firms worldwide in adopting BDO as its brand name, dropping Seidman. It also changed its statutory name to BDO USA, LLP.
