Our clients say

Plante Moran is an excellent firm to work with because we receive timely and comprehensive advice on any issue. I appreciate the news and alerts on new tax laws that enable us to stay on top of changes in IRS laws immediately. Every time I speak with them, the auditors and consultants inform me of new laws that are pending that could be important to my business. I would recommend Plante Moran to others because with them, there isn't much difference between corporation and personal. I'm on a first name basis with my contacts and I can communicate with them just like personal friends—I couldn't ask for anything better.
