Proven expertise to generate increased returns

Competition is fierce in the middle market. You need a strategic advisor who can deliver value and drive growth — one who understands your transaction methodology, the market, and investor expectations. That’s where we come in. We’ve seen it all and more than 1,500 private equity firms and portfolio companies look to us to pinpoint value and provide single-point access to highly regarded experts.

We’ve worked with clients of all sizes, from those with complex entity structuring to those with unsophisticated systems. We know what to look for, and our comprehensive services will make sure you know what you’re getting in to. Our services range from transaction advisory, audit, tax, and finance and accounting outsourcing to technology, operations, and strategy.

Each year, we advise on more than 350 deals, bringing clarity and confidence throughout the fast-paced deal environment. By partnering with our investment bank, P&M Corporate Finance, and our other affiliates, we provide consistent deal flow and offer critical value-added services that help you avoid the additional costs and complexities of working with multiple advisors. Furthermore, we understand the importance of maintaining relationships, and won’t bulldoze an acquisition target. We treat each seller with respect and make the process as painless as possible so that you emerge with relationships intact — or even improved.

I’m proud of the team every day because they truly have our clients’ best interests at heart. This dedication to helping others grow and maximize value — that’s what matters.”

Our clients say

Plante Moran has been working with Huron Capital for more than 15 years. Plante Moran clearly understands our funds’ goals and objectives as middle-market investors, which makes for a great working relationship. One of their best attributes is their understanding of the dynamics of family-owned businesses, which comprise the majority of Huron’s investments. They’ve also been a great referral source to Huron — always on the lookout for potential add-on acquisition targets that may be interesting to our current portfolio.
