At Schneider Downs, our consultants help private equity firms maximize returns and build value from acquisition through exit. We also assist firms with compliance and accounting and tax regulations germane to your business structure and evolving needs.
Private equity firms face many issues from regulations and oversight to ever-changing market conditions that have a significant impact on investment opportunities and returns. With increasing pressures to increase value, private equity firms need experienced business advisors to work with throughout the lifecycle of the fund and portfolio company investments.

Further, our tax professionals help quantify the tax risks and benefits associated with stock versus asset acquisitions and assist sellers in evaluating the after-tax proceeds associated with different transaction structures.
Our professionals serving private equity firms include certified public accountants, certified merger and acquisition advisors and certified valuation analysts.
