PKF North America Launches New Advisory Group

PKF North America is launching a new venture that combines the transaction advisory and valuation practices of six North American firms in the group’s network under the umbrella of PKF Advisory. The new venture draws on the experience of consultants from IPA 100 firms Berkowitz Pollack Brant and PKF O’Connor Davies, IPA 200 firm Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, PC and IPA 400 firm JLK Rosenberger, as well as PKF Boston and PKF Mueller.

This collective will help guide clients through the strategic, operational, regulatory and financial aspects of M&A transactions, valuations and other business advisory challenges. The group’s valuation services will include valuations for financial reporting (fair value and purchase price allocations), tax purposes and financial forensics and litigation, while transaction advisory practice areas will include pre- and post-acquisition due diligence and integration, quality of earnings analysis, carve-out assistance, bankruptcy and restructuring and market value analysis.

PKF Advisory will be led by managing director Byron Hebert, along with Christopher Hatten, Noam Hirschberger and Jonathan Moore.

“Businesses today aren’t just pursuing growth, they’re pursuing transformation across geographies, partnerships and lines of business,” says Hebert. “PKF Advisory offers companies a new and better way to minimize costs, maximize efficiencies and realize new innovations through high-touch relationships and a consistent approach by a national team with transaction advisory and valuation experts.”
