Transaction Services


Transactions are never simple. Executives and investors face significant risk, rapidly changing dynamics, and compounding complications. As a result, many deals leave value on the table and many more never even close. As one of the top transaction services practices in the western U.S., EKS&H has helped hundreds of companies, businesses, and private equity groups (PEGs) take the right steps along the way.

Support for All Your Transactions

During all steps of the process—initial strategy and planning, comprehensive due diligence, structuring, close, and post-close integration—our transaction services team helps each client achieve the most favorable valuation and complete the optimal deal for its specific situation.

We have more than 25 dedicated transaction consultants available with deep technical accounting, finance, tax, and industry knowledge, so we can identify issues and opportunities others might miss. We use advanced data mining software and research tools to provide key insight into the numbers and maintain relationships with a team of experienced attorneys, investment advisors, bankers, and lenders to offer strategic advice. Our collaborative, responsive approach, which is based on constant communication, helps avoid costly mistakes before they happen.
