Professional Services Thought Leadership

We focus on you, so you can focus on your clients

We take a personal approach to each engagement, focusing on what matters to you. By taking the time to understand your organization, how you work, and the challenges and opportunities you face, we can tailor our solutions to best meet your needs and goals. And we’re not afraid to challenge the status quo; you can trust we’ll have your best interests in mind, even if that means less work for us.

Our one-firm firm structure means you’ll get the best resources and service, regardless of location. From our 350 dedicated professional services experts, to those with specialized expertise in cybersecurity, talent, and risk management, among others, we’ll tackle your challenges, help you become a stronger organization, and drive sustainable growth.

We also know you’re busy — with clients of your own to serve. Our experts will come to you, and work with you, on your time. “We’re an open book. We’ll share anything we can about ourselves and similar problems we’ve solved as a firm,” says Kevin Flattery, our professional services leader. “This helps us get you an answer quicker, providing insights to solve the problem faster than we were able to the first time.”

Our clients say

Our experience with Plante Moran has always been very positive. They provide a multitude of services that meet our needs, including our annual review, AUP report for FAR, benefit plan audits, and our tax returns. When we bought a building a few years ago, I mentioned it in a call with our engagement partner, and she suggested we utilize a cost segregation study. I didn’t know that was possible, so having a consistent engagement partner and manager who understand our company and what we’re working on is very valuable.
