Our clients say

Plante Moran has been invaluable in establishing our operation in China. They guided us through the labyrinth of rules and registrations that were required to start up our operations. In addition, they provided accounting and administrative services that allowed us to leverage our employees. This allowed us to focus on our customers, and we were able to become profitable in our first year of operations, and put us on track to double our sales in the second year.
