Professional Service Firms

Plante Moran provides the support professional services firms need to thrive

Plante Moran fulfills the accounting, tax planning, and business management consulting needs of more than 400 professional services providers, including law firms, physician practices, and architectural and engineering firms. Our professional services clients have annual revenues that range from less than $10 million to more than $250 million with offices in one location, multiple states, or throughout the world. 

You will benefit from our relationships with all of them

As a result of our relationships, we are especially well equipped to leverage our experiences to benefit your organization, and we bring our knowledge of the industry to every project. From financial statement audits to tax planning, we know that each client is unique, so we will take time to understand your situation and offer you customized solutions. 

Plante Moran offers a menu of services for professional services providers

In response to the needs of the professional services groups that we serve, we have developed a menu of services to help them deal with issues like federal, state, and local tax minimization, ownership succession planning, and information security issues.

For instance, we recently conducted a cost segregation study on an A/E firm’s $2 million renovation to a two-story office suite in downtown San Francisco. The study resulted in a first-year tax savings of $100,000 and a first five-year tax savings of $470,000. 

We can help you hold on to your exceptional team

Good people translate into greater profitability. With this in mind, business management consultants at Plante & Moran can help you develop and retain the best and brightest employees.

Benefits are expensive, but they are important to employee retention. Plante Moran can help you find a benefit plan through experienced employee benefits consulting services that minimizes the impact on your bottom line and still allows you to compete for the best employees. In many cases, our employee benefits consultants have been able to produce an ROI of 4:1 or greater in the first year. 

You will appreciate our award-winning culture

We can confidently say you will enjoy working with Plante Moran. Many organizations and publications have honored the firm as a top place to work.” That is because we have a culture that is built on nurturing our staff and putting the client first.

The culture encourages collaboration so that you can depend on exceptional thinking and problem solving. It also translates into high staff retention, so you will see the same team members from one project to the next.


SmithGroup JJR has worked with Plante Moran for the past 15 years on financial audits, 401(k) audits, tax returns, assistance with our Chinese subsidiary, and various business consulting issues. What I like most about working with the accountants and consultants at Plante Moran is the quality of people, and the quality of work they provide. The expertise and diverse knowledge, capabilities, and skill sets at Plante Moran allow them to solve any problem, diffusing complicated matters and presenting practical answers and real-life solutions.
